This review of Fish & Trip contains the following information:
The reviewer played the game for several hours
In Fish & Trip, the player starts with a single fish and must collect other fish – which then become a part of their “school”. The more fish collected the higher the points earned. The player can also collect eggs which can be used to give access to different fish. Players must avoid hitting various sea-life or being eaten by fish/sharks. The game increases in difficulty the longer that the player survives. The aim of the game is to stay alive as long as possible and achieve the highest score. Players will need quick reaction times to last for a reasonable amount of time in this game as the pace of the fish becomes very quick in a short amount of time. Furthermore, the amount of obstacles and predators in the fast stage increases a lot – making the game quite difficult.
While this game may be suitable for younger children the increasing pace of the swimming fish makes it very difficult to last for a decent amount of time and hence some younger children are likely to become frustrated with this. Furthermore parental guidance is recommended for children aged 9 – 12 due to the game’s connectivity to Twitter and Facebook and in-app purchasing.
You can pay $2.99 to stop the ads (which also gives you 5000 eggs).
New fish can also be unlocked for $0.99 to $4.49 each.
