As of late, I’ve gotten my hands on at least one social game (basically games that are tied into Facebook) every week. This time around I spent some time with Crowdstar’s newest iOS social app Fish with Attitude.
Unlike many of the other social apps that required me to manage everything under the sun while multi-tasking a multitude of different elements, Fish with Attitude is refreshingly simple. All I have to do for the most part is choose two fish and have them breed (along with plenty of fish inbreeding at first). Over time you must upgrade the fish which earns you more coin (more on this later). The addicting portion of breeding is that you never really know for sure what kind of fish you’re going to get since they all have different personality traits. Some will be nice, shy, brave, mean, tough, flirty or any combination of these. You can try and breed a select type of fish but…you won’t know for what you’re going to get until the egg hatches. Trust me, this experimentation is more addictive than it sounds.
Because each fish has its own personality it will get along with some better than others. Some fish like certain toys and decorations. To make sure that you group fish in the right groups, you’ll need to purchase more fish tanks that’ll not only allow you to group fish that get along, but also be able to have more fish (six per tank). What does this mean? More breeding diversity and complexity such as Angel fish or James Dean fish…umm I mean Rebel Fish
While half of your time will be either spent breeding or upgrading fish the other half of your time will be spent upgrading/decorating your fish tanks. If you properly set up your fish tank with decorations you’ll make your place happier for your fish not to mention that much cooler to look at. All of the decorations can either be purchased in a store which you’ll spend your fish-earned coins on or even more fun is sending your fish on a digging mission (which also costs a bit of coin) and if you’re lucky they will bring up something extra valuable such as multiple pearls (you use pearls to speed up the waiting process which is common in these games). So if you tire of breeding, you might try out your decoration skills. What can I say…I’m addicted.
The Bottom Line: 9/10 (Great)
If you’re new to social gaming, this is a fantastic place to start!
