Fish Food is a free (ad-supported) puzzle game by Tom Moor, that puts a lot of other paid puzzlers on the market to shame.
You slide fish around a 5◊6 grid, the goal is to connect as many of the big red fish as possible and then pop them for a combo. You get them by dragging bigger fish over the smaller fish, until they grow.
A video says more then a thousands words and thankfully the developer uploaded one to show you, how the game works:
There are two play modes, classic and drop mode. In classic the grid is always filled with fish, if you eat or pop them, new ones drop from above. In Drop mode you start with an empty grid and new fish fall down all the time. Both modes can be played in easy, normal or hard, which changes the drop ratio and the speed the bubble meter is decreasing. The bubble meter is your time limit in classic, when it’s empty , the game is finished. You can upload your score to Twitter or just try to beat your own Highscore.
I was surprised by the quality of the game, it is a rock solid product, that does more things right then a lot of the commercial offerings.
The graphics are cute and lively, the controls work perfectly, the sound is nice and the options let you deactivate effects and background music separately, as well as vibration for touch and explosions. If you get a call, multitask or go back to the main menu for options, you can resume exactly where you left off, it even pauses.
The only thing, that I’m missing is an in-game menu with the menu button, so I can pause quickly or deactivate sound, but since I can go back to the main menu and resume, that’s just nitpicking.
Since it’s free, you can’t go wrong with giving this game a spin and maybe it will surprise you with it’s quality as much as it did me.
