Halfbrick's Newest Title 'Fish Out Of Water' Hits the App Store

by

fishoutofwaterHalfbrick Studios, the team behind hit iOS apps like Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride, has released an addictive new game called Fish Out Of Water. In Fish Out Of Water, the idea is to launch fish through the air, earning scores based on flight time and number of skips across the water.

The game incorporates a variety of fish with different abilities, along with hourly weather changes that alter the fish hurling conditions. Players will experience tsunamis, icebergs, and swarms of jellyfish while competing to throw fish the furthest. Our sister-site TouchArcade has an overview of the gameplay:

Imagine skipping stones in a constantly changing ocean that's directly linked to the weather in game, only instead of stones you've got a variety of fish that each have slightly different abilities such as being able to fly extra far or being able to skip across the surface like mad.

Each attempt is graded by a set of judges who each look for specific things in your tosses, and doing well involves not only choosing the right fish for the weather but also throwing them appropriately to best handle the current state of your waves.


After three fish tosses players are judged and given an overall score to compete in daily league score competitions with friends. The game also incorporates Game Center support with leaderboards and achievements.

Fish Out Of Water is a universal app that can be downloaded from the App Store for $0.99. [Direct Link]

I really like Game Center and wish all games on iOS and OS X used it. It's clean, simple, and streamlined. And has been mentioned, is great for multiplayer.

It's a nice work in progress and I hope Apple continues to add things to it. At the top of my request list is integration with iMessage, and automatic real time user statuses when playing a game like in Steam (i.e: "I am currently playing _____").

i wish it would save game scores so i dont have to play each game all over again on a new device. now THAT would be a reason to open that dusty app.


It can and it will - IF the developer uses the Game Center API.

RocketCat Games saves your scores AND your game progress in a few of their games.
