This game can also be Romanticized like Umi Hara Gawa Se.
Umihara Kawase is a platform game that was only officially released in Japan and enjoyed a sequel on the PlayStation. The title is derived from a Japanese cooking idiom meaning "sea fish are fat in the belly, river fish are fat in the back".
The game is pretty simple. You control a girl with a rubber fishing line which you can use to attack and catch most of the various enemies in the game. However, its main use is to navigate through the levels. You can hook onto any solid surface, and mastering swinging from surface to surface is the key to getting far in this game.
The game comes with an option to watch a replay of your progress once you lose. This feature is surprisingly sophisticated; you can store replays in several files and save them to the game's memory. It's this feature that has been translated.
True, in this day and age, this feature has been completely superseded by the great ease of making gameplay clips and sharing with them others on the Internet, but the reason this translation was made was to bring attention to a rather unique and enjoyable game.
