Game Review: Create your own reef in Fish Paradise [iOS, Android]
I don’t know how many of you have fish as pets at your house, whether it’s just a goldfish or larger aquariums with a variety of exotic fish, but I always admired and wished I could have one too. So, I compromised with a similar thing which is the mobile game Fish Paradise by Orca Studios which allows you to take care of a variety of fish in a very fun and entertaining way. Let’s take a look at what the game has to offer.
In Fish Paradise the player is introduced to an underwater world where they are asked to design in whatever way they want, a reef full of exotic adorable fish. I love that we have the freedom to make everything look as we imagine it and not follow a fixed pattern. You can use hundreds of items to decorate you aquarium, such as coral, plants, structures, and in addition you can create new fish by breeding your existing ones.
In addition, there are daily tasks for you to complete and claim rewards when completing them, such as feeding the fish of buying new ones and more. You can also play games, take photos of your reef, visit others and take part in challenges to earn prices. The game’s currency are coins and diamonds with which you can visit the shop and purchase the fish or the items of your liking.
Another very interesting and worth mention aspect of the game is that Orca Studios and Great Barrier Reef Legacy (GBR Legacy) are collaborating to fund a series of research projects – along with the purchase of the charity’s first vessel – through 5% of Fish Paradise’s in-game purchases. A noble cause worth supporting.
The game is free but also gives you the option to purchase coin or diamond bundles in various prices.
Graphics & Sounds
The graphics are beautiful and the designs look realistic while maintaining a more cartoony feel. The colors are beautiful, crystal-clear and vibrant and the movements of the fish very calming. The same can be said about the BG music which is very fitting and soft.
Fish Paradise is a lovely game perfect for those who love the sea and nature in general and want to take care of adorable little creatures in a way that is fun and realistic at the same time. Let us know your thoughts and impressions in the comments below.
