Last Fish review (iPod/iPhone)

February 9, 2011

10 word description: Stylish black/white action game about surviving as a fish.

10 word review: Lovely, strange, hypnotic. Tense yet relaxing. Great controls. Unique visuals.

 

It’s like: A strange dream about being a fish. The Last Fish.

It’s better than: When your goldfish died and you cried because your mum flushed its corpse down the toilet. Yeah, definitely better than that.

 

It’s not: Colourful

Average game time: Times for challenge levels vary. In survival mode, you can start to feel good about yourself after maybe 5 minutes. 

Arcadelife verdict: A work of minor genius mistaken for “just another casual game”. The control method (tilting) is perfect in this game and the subtle, dark graphical style is quite beautiful.
