Angry Fish, as it seems pretty much similar to its original game ‘ Angry Birds’ even in the basic design, style, and application of gameplay as well. Angry Fish is just another game you can play if you really loved Angry Birds. There are even plenty of other versions of the game which is ideally in contrast with the original game design, whether is the use of mouse clicks, deciding the trajectory of fishes or the trail it leaves after the throw. The game is designed on the HTML5 and the overall graphics of the game is convincingly good and vibrant in colors. It is placed underwater whereby various elements such as constant air bubbles, crabs, water plants and sand, the feel is preserved. Well, there are chickens under water which make you wonder how chickens are surviving under the water?
Gameplay is crystal clear with the game title as ‘ Angry Fish’. It is based on the popular concept of aiming birds to hit enemy pigs in a puzzle video game format in some kind of strategic constructions built to protect the enemies. The concept is obviously brought by one of the most successful games ‘ Angry Birds’ which later came with multiple versions or sequels as well. You can consider Angry Fish, an unofficial sequel of the game as well. So the gameplay is pretty much the same. Only the surroundings are switched to the underwater where fishes need to strike on chickens. With clicking on the mouses, you need to decide the trajectory of the fish towards the chicken or chickens, follow the dotted/suggested path, pull the slingshot to gain only required energy and release to hit. The objective is to cause maximum damage but with only one or two fish life, your objective is centered to hit a particular number of chickens in that particular trial itself. Also, you need to take the stars in a way to gain points. However, the stars are not mandatory. With new levels, the difficulty level, number of chickens and fishes along with the constructions to shelter the chickens get stronger and strategic. Also, different kind of fishes has unique abilities to kill the chickens.
a) Get the preview of the location at the beginning of the level about where exactly the chickens are positioned.
b) Use right-click on the mouse and hold the click to catch fish in the slingshot and use the mouse cursor to decide ‘ how much to pull’ and ‘ where to aim’
c) Release the right click mouse when you find your trajectory and required power to shoot.
d) Look out for the number of fish you have, a number of chickens you supposed to kill and the stars to take as well.
Tips To Play
1. If you have played Angry Birds enough, you will be quite handy to this game as well and it will be more fun to play as well due to new-ness it follows. If you have not played Angry Birds earlier, start with understanding the space, trajectory, estimate about how much pull it requires.
2. Follow the trajectory dotted lines to get a fair idea about where the fish can possibly hit. Keep taking mental notes after each move regarding the trajectory and pull power it needs to reach a certain point.
3. The game is all about estimating the right trajectory/direction and the required power to hit on the right spot. Interestingly, it is not precise so you do not have to much worry about it as even a bit strike to some element can cause destruction or movement to kill the chicken.
