If you’ve ever wanted a goldfish but didn’t want the hassle of the feeding, cleaning and inevitable death then perhaps a virtual one is the answer. Now there are many options when it comes to virtual goldfish but none quite like the goldfish that is part of the game ‘Last Fish’.
You control the fish using the accelerometer as it swims around the dark screen with the glow of his white body creating additional visibility in the darkness.
The game is split into two game types, levels and arcade. Levels consists of 45 levels with increasingly difficult challenges. The challenges vary from surviving a given length of time, collecting a stream of rings to building your health up to a certain level.
All this is done while avoiding the goo that saps your energy and in later levels the dark fish that chase you, also in an attempt to sap your energy.
The Arcade mode consists of five levels where your challenge is to survive as long as possible. Each level gets increasingly difficult and is unlocked based on your success in the Levels part of the game.
The game is dark, moody and atmospheric and with the Open Feint integration adding achievements and leaderboards Last Fish is an intriguing fun game for all ages.
