You Don't Want To Skip The First Ever Update To Halfbrick's Fish Out Of Water
The addictive fish-skipping game Fish Out Of Water is making another big splash with the arrival of its first ever update. Surfacing over three months after the game's release (and subsequent AppAdvice Game of the Week designation), the first update to Fish Out Of Water brings a great deal of goodies, including new costumes and new abilities. Beginning with the new version of Fish Out Of Water, you can use crystals to buy costumes for your fishy friends. There are 12 costumes for you to collect: Aviator Micro, King Micro, Rocket Crash Helmet, Pirate Rocket, Fancy Olympus, Afro Olympus, Punk Brothers, Brothers In Fins, Headphone Finlay, Propeller Finlay, Lifesaver Errol, and Ninja Errol. Note that each costume changes the way the fish play, that is, it changes their flying, bouncing, and skipping abilities. So, better try them all if you wish to unlock the ultimate combination that results in the best scores. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. Speaking of scores, the newly updated Fish Out Of Water also includes a second scoring system designed for pro players. There's also a new leaderboard that lets you compare your pro scores with your Game Center friends. Moreoever, you can now hide scores from other players by disabling the game's live feed in the options menu. The new version of Fish Out Of Water is available now in the App Store as a free update or as a new $0.99 download. The game is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 5.0 or later. For more information on Fish Out Of Water, check out Christine's original review here on AppAdvice. Fish Out Of Water is created by Halfbrick Studios, the developer behind some of the most popular games on iOS, including Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride. Last week at PAX Australia, the Queensland-based developer announced its follow-up to Fish Out Of Water, a "monstrous" matching game called Colossatron: Massive World Threat.
