Diving Trunks


Diving Trunks is a casual dodging/shoot 'em up style game featuring a seafaring elephant who has dropped his peanuts overboard. It is your task to help 'Trunks' dive down into the deep ocean to retrieve as many peanuts as possible, all whilst gulping air bubbles to stay alive and avoiding unkindly marine life.

Features crisp, cartoony graphics and original music. A wide variety of enemies ensure infinite replayability. Dodge smaller marine creatures then battle colossal sea monsters by shooting peanuts from your trunk!

Game Modes

Endless: Collect peanuts and survive for as long as you can. Encounter Boss Monsters with randomised features - prepare for anything from a simple battle to a total onslaught.

Challenge: Collect a set number of peanuts before reaching the sea floor. Mysteries of the deep are waiting to be unlocked. Each playthrough is completely different - no two attempts are the same.

Hunger: Prevent rapid starvation by frequently munching peanuts.

Numbers: Gulp numbered bubbles in the correct sequence; wrong numbers reduce your air supply.

Fetch: Collect a target star bubble and return it to the base; air granted only upon return.

Haste: Forward velocity is constant; steer clear of danger, if you can.

Patterns: Marine creatures swim in geometric patterns; navigate through gaps in the shapes.

Slalom: Swim through a series of gates; a wrong or missed gate earns one of three strikes.

Panic: Avoid a fatal panic attack by staying clear of certain creatures.

Boss Fights

Battle relentless sea monsters whose size and defenses are randomly-generated - who knows what you'll encounter in the depths. Use the peanuts you've collected as ammunition to defeat these deep-sea behemoths.


Collect and use various special abilities to assist Trunks:

Bubble Shield: Deploys a protective bubble around Trunks at the expense of his air supply.

Boost: Gives Trunks a speed boost in his current direction.

Diving Trunks is a completely developed game and is available on Steam and
Initially for release on PC, and later Mac.


Diving Trunks is the result of a private game jam contest combining the theme of 'underwater' and item 'elephant'. The initial game idea grew and has been further developed over a year with a multitude of features and content, such as additional game modes, effects, and original music by first-time composer Tom Hines.
