Umihara Kawase is a 1994 physics based puzzle platformer developed by Studio Saizensen for the Super Famicom starring Kawase Umihara, a nineteen-year-old school girl who become lost in a mysterious salt-water with fresh-water creatures. Umihara travels through fifty interconnected levels known as fields and the goal is to find a safe route through the fields and arrive at a final exit door. Umihara is able to run, jump, climb onto ledges, climb ladders and crucially throw fishing line. The fishing line can be attached to sides of platforms and used to swing across gaps or rappel up and down to reach new areas. There are multiple routes and exit doors, and the game's ending depends on the amount of total time taken to beat the fiftieth stage. Player can use shortcuts and optimised door routes to shave off time and completing the game within a strict time limit for better ending. The name of "Umihara Kawase" is actually an abbreviated Japanese proverb "Sea fish are fat in the belly; river fish are fat in the back." The Windows version was released by Agatsuma Entertainment on November 2, 2015.
