As you can see from the videos, Fish Out of Water is some sort of a fish-skipping game. Halfbrick explains the basic gameplay thus:
In each round, players have three throws, choosing the best fish depending on their personal preference and the conditions of the ocean. The weather changes every hour, from a glassy calm surface to a raging thunderstorm. There’s even potential for glaciers, geysers and a bouncing jellyfish invasion! Each fish has their own strengths and weaknesses, so it’s all part of the strategy getting the most out of every turn.You'll certainly get to learn more about Fish Out of Water with our official review here on AppAdvice, which will be posted shortly after the game's release on Thursday. Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, Fish Out of Water is going to be available for $0.99. Are you looking forward to catching Fish Out of Water as soon as it surfaces in the App Store?
