  • Summary: Launch a daredevil group of fishy friends to the sky in Fish Out Of Water, an adventure across the sun, sand and surf!

    This is a brand new mobile masterpiece from Halfbrick, creators of Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride!

    Fish Out Of Water is the story of six feisty fish longing to soar
    above the ocean and see the world from a whole new perspective. To help them get airborne, players simply throw their fish of choice right out of the water and watch as it flies through the clouds and skips merrily along the waves. But there’s a lot more to this adventure under the surface!

    Players will have to battle the elements and choose their throw wisely as the weather changes hourly. Expect the unexpected with crazy tsunamis, icebergs and even an immense jellyfish swarm!

    After three throws, the Crab Crew will score your overall performance, and that’s where the competition really heats up! Players can compete in daily league score competitions with their friends and monitor their level progress. As different objectives are completed, players level up and unlock charms which can be crafted to unleash awesome bonus powers at the start of each game!

    Fish Out Of Water is an easy choice for instant fun – a seaworthy search for the perfect 10!

    All together, these systems make for a clever game. And it's certainly a cute one. I'm just not convinced it will have all that much lasting power.

    Fish Out of Water from Halfbrick's core mechanic is fun to play, but it is far from the endless replayability that came along with Fruit Ninja or Jetpack Joyride.

    If you're looking for a new time waster, Fish Out of Water is a decent experience, despite its lack of depth. If you require something with a little more meat on its bones, feel free to wait, because in all likelihood, just like Jetpack Joyride, this will go free at some point given the fact that in-app-purchases are already featured.

    It doesn’t have that same finger-licking, addictive goodness found in Halfbrick's previous hits Jetpack Joyride or Fruit Ninja, but Fish Out of Water is as casual as casual gets, which makes it fun right from the get go. This also means that it loses some of its charm after the first hour or two due to a lack of gameplay variety.

    I respect Halfbrick as one of the developers responsible for shaping the current state of mobile gaming, but Fish Out Of Water is a barebones offering that sinks rather than swims.

    Fish Out of Water! is still a fun pick up and play game, but after five minutes you have essentially seen everything the game has to offer. Like the game's title, Halfbrick may have stepped out of its natural element with this game, and the result is gasping desperately for air.

    This is one to steer well clear of, as it also has the makings to drop to free soon with the in-app purchases for gems, similar to the price drop of Jetpack Joyride.
