Hide & Beak is a top-down survival game about finding food and avoiding becoming a meal yourself.

You play as a Koi living in a small pond with some other smaller fish. You need to find food, and luckily there are plenty of water bugs zipping around the surface of your pond.

But you are not the only one looking for food...

The Heron is flying above you hoping to catch a nice meal. Make sure you hide under cover as he passes or swim fast enough to avoid his beak!
