At Funcoast, we love mobile games with all sorts of levels and weapons and secrets and all of that. Colorful graphics and blinding explosions on your phone screen can be fun, but sometimes a simpler game can be a nice change of pace. So, for just that reason, our Tandem Mobile App Pick of the Week is Last Fish.
Last Fish is the latest offering from a company called Pyrosphere, and the game has a really unique look to it. The game is entirely grayscale. You have a fish that you have to maneuver through one single screen among a lot of healthy white dots and toxic black dots, through rings, and away from other fish who are chasing you.
The way you maneuver the fish is what really makes this game interesting. The game relies entirely on you tilting your phone around to control how your fish moves. Tilt your phone right, your fish swims right, tilt your phone back, the fish swims up. It provides a much different take on phone games than the tapping and swiping that most games make you do. Plus, the understated colors and relaxing motions of your fishy protagonist probably make this a good game for anyone who likes to play phone games before they fall asleep.
We get that the price tag not reading free might be a turn off, but for a buck, you really do get a well-made game that's not your ordinary loud, flashing, bird-flinging fare. So we say it's worth it. Enjoy!
