New WiiWare Game: Fish'em All
Posted by Darren Calvert
Get your nets out and prepare to catch yourself some fish for dinner!
As you will see from the screenshots in our gallery below, it certainly looks very nice. We don’t know too much more yet, other than what is revealed in this mini press release:
Abylight is pleased to announce the next release of its "Fish'em All" game.
Hold on tight to your controls and fish'em all! Alone, or with your friends, you will have a great time catching these little fish... they're crazy!
Beat your own high scores, take on challenges and solve fun puzzles in a range of amazing stages full of colour and fantasy. Watch out for the dragon, the ninja-rat or the sumo-toad! Do you think it looks easy?
This game will bring all the excitement of the great arcade classics to your console.
- Nine colourful scenarios.
- Three game modes: Arcade, Challenge, Fishtris.
- One or two players.
Here are some more details on the three game modes:
Can you beat the high score? Play a game in Arcade mode to see how long you can last. Catch as many fish as you can within the time limit. Watch the fish meter. The more points you score catching fish, the faster it will fill up. Each time you manage to fill a whole fish on the meter, you will receive extra time. If you manage to fill them all, you will advance to the next stage.
Complete the challenges to unlock stages. You can then select any unlocked stage to play in two player mode.
Each challenge sets you a target. Note how many fish of each colour you need to catch. Sometimes, it will tell you which items you need to avoid or set a time limit.
Even more difficult!
Every time you catch a fish, it will fall into the tube. If the tube fills up, the game will end. To keep playing, match three or more fish of the same colour to make them disappear.
When you match three or more fish of the same colour, the fish meter will fill slightly. When you manage to fill a whole fish on the meter, you will receive extra time. If you manage to fill them all, you will advance to the next stage.
Watch out though! There is a crazy machine above the tube that will drop random fish and complicate the game a little more.
If things get tough, try and catch the anglerfish. It will eat all the fish in the tube.
As always, do let us know your thoughts on this announcement below. You never know, the developer might even come and say hello if you are nice enough!
