Review of "Angel Fish" for iOS

Angel Fish is a game where you control a fish collecting pearls and shells and shrimp.  It is a 2d, side-view, arcade-type game with a high score board.

The term difficult doesn't really describe this game well enough. You get a limited time to collect a large number of items with the map covered in other fish, your health bar goes down when you crash into another fish. Your fish dies if you don't get all the items within the time limit, or if you hit too many fish.

To help you, you have a speed boost button, with a limited stamina bar.

To describe how difficult the game is, let me tell you how far I got through the game.

I couldn't beat the first level.

Now I am not very good at these types of games but I can usually beat the FIRST LEVEL. But the main point is that I kept trying, getting slowly closer to beating the level. This is the mark of a successful arcade-style game, that you fail repeatedly and keep playing.

The controls are fairly well responsive and easy enough to use. The graphics are quite good and fit the style of the game, without being too difficult to see.

As for longevity, this game could last a very short time or a very long time depending on how much you like arcade type general it is fairly good.

The game is, all things considered, quite good. It isn't anything groundbreaking, but it is a nice little time-waster.

Graphics: 75%
Sound: 70%
Control : 80%
Longevity: 65%
Challenge: 90%
Fun: 70%
