Fish Tank

Aquatic puzzler leaps from the PSP to the iOS.

  

Bay Area, CA, March 9, 2011 - iFun4All, leading Polish developer of highly entertaining games, today announced the imminent availability of Fish Tank, an arcade-style matching game, in the vein of Columns or DynoGems. Fish Tank has been released few months ago on PSP and has received great acclaim for its innovative game play mechanics. The game will be available on the iOS platforms in a few weeks. If you love matching games, this one is not to be missed. 

In Fish Tank, instead of matching gems or blocks, you are matching colors of fish, and the gameplay happens horizontally, not vertically. Different colors of fish swim from the left-hand side of the screen to a 5×8 grid on the right-hand side of the screen. You control their up and down movement by tilting the iPhone or iPad and guide them into rows, though it can be a little tricky telling just which row they are going to end up in. Its all in the wrist and your strategic execution.

There is a great deal of strategy as to when you should cash in your matched fish. The matched groups don't automatically vanish when you reach the minimum number in a row.  You need to manually clear the group of matches. The bigger the group, the more points it is worth, and you also get more points if you cash in more than one group at a time. Also complicating matters is a large number of power-ups. These drift along like the fish, and you play them at the right time. Most of these have good effects, but some will remove fish without adding to your score, which can be a mixed blessing.
