Koi-Ryu Torii

Legend tells of an incredible feat of a koi fish who, through sheer determination and willpower, spent 100 years swimming up a waterfall before it succeeded in reaching the top, and as acknowledgement of its strength, the gods transformed it to a golden dragon. This accomplishment is now marked by a golden torii gate that crowns the top of a seemingly endless waterfall. In Koi-Ryu Torii, you take the role of an aspiring koi fish trying to accomplish what the famous koi did many legends ago. You are not alone in this en devour however, and while teamwork is key to reach the top, only one koi will be granted the dragon's boon. Race to the top following the trail another koi has left behind, but be wary of your companion who is also your competitor. Leave behind a trail too easy, and your opponent will likely soar past you, but leave behind a trail too hard, and you may compromise your own success.
