Editors' reviewWith colorful graphics and a quirky plot, Fish Tycoon is a step ahead of most ordinary simulation games. Designed for the Pocket PC, it puts players in the role of fish breeders, starting with an aquarium populated with a few ordinary fish. These must be fed and cared for, and when they're grown, they can be sold for money to buy better tanks, research technologies, or advertisements seeking rarer species. The ultimate goal is to crossbreed your fish, in hopes of creating the seven magic hybrid varieties that will help you win the game. The action takes place in real time, so the fish will grow and age even while the handheld is turned off and the game stopped. The game itself functions smoothly, taking little system memory, and has a fully automatic installation process. Trial limitations simply bar players from purchasing advanced inventory items. With its quirky, well-designed play, we can happily recommend Fish Tycoon to any Pocket PC gamer looking for an engaging game.
Fish Tycoon is a fish breeding sim where you breed and care for exotic fish in a true real-time aquarium. The object of this tycoon game is to discover the 7 MAGIC FISH by cross-breeding and solving the genetic puzzle. You start with a small selection of fish, some money, and a tank. You must breed them, care for them, help them grow, and cure them if they get sick. Along the way you can buy supplies, medicine, research technologies, or invest in advertisement to enable you to discover rarer and rarer species until you find the Magic Fish. All of this will be financed by selling exotic hybrids in your shop. The game runs in TRUE REAL-TIME, so that if your device is turned off or you exit the game, hours later small fish will have grown larger and new surprises await you. Comes with a built in screensaver.
