Review for Mac version

[Post New]by RyeMcLaughlin on Dec 2, 14 7:05 AM
Review based on 50 minutes of play of the demo.

Pleasant enough Match 3. Very similar to past ones, with perhaps more challenge. Usually with Fishdom games I'm able to get the gold without much effort, but in this one I have already had to replay a couple of levels.

Graphics are the usual Fishdom cartoon style. Even most of the icons are the same.

The fish are talkative and demand a lot of attention. Even if fully fed when you quit, if it's been a while (just a day) since you last played, they are all starving. Some of the conversations are a bit odd. One of them started quoting from Shakespeare's Othello - the scene between Othello and Desdemona just before he kills her. Kind of weird to have coming from a cartoon fish.

The solution to not enough room for new fish is to add junk to your fish tank, and most of the decorations are incredibly tacky. A wider variety of styles would have been nice.

It's a probable purchase for me, but not something I have to have this minute.
