Ride in style. You're a pirate using a whale as a ride to get across the sea. You can swim, slide, and fly with your whale, and make sure to collect the coins and power-ups along the way. Also, have some fun with the bouncy balls but make sure to not crash!

New hats and whales

New hats and whales. Use those shiny gold coins you collect in the shop to get some cool new swag! You can pick from 20 different hats and a handful of awesome new whale designs. But be warned — you have to earn all of your coins (no in-app purchases) and the whales can be a bit pricey.

Simple controls. Run-A-Whale is a one-touch infinite runner. Just touch the screen to dive, and release to jump. Avoid obstacles and see how far you can get! There are also goals to complete and once they're done, you level up. Boss fights appear every five levels.
