Mighty Fin by
Launching Pad Games (New Zealand) is a truly addictive casual game for the iPad.
The goal behind this title is simple, you need to help a gold fish
collect bubbles and bonuses in order to increase your score and move
onto the next level. It's side scrolling addictive madness that will
have you coming back for more and more.
Best of all, the gaming levels are quite
diverse as you control this fish as you attempt to collect the
bubbles and avoid the obstacles such as sharp objects that will
immediately end the life of your fish or other underwater nasties.
There are plenty of challenges along the way and dangers that must
be avoided. Although most levels are quite easy to finish as you do
progress, some of the levels do become considerably more difficulty
such as the blasted Ninja level... but it's all part of the fun!
The control system
of Mighty Fin works well on the iPad and by holding your finger on
the screen, this causes your fish to dive into the water and by
letting go, it causes your fish to jump. However sometimes timing
does play a factor in order to reach the bonuses or get a dream run
through the level. Now and then you need to tap and let go and tap
again in order to line up your fish to collect the bubbles which can
be a challenge at times, especially when dangerous obstacles get in
your way. Nonetheless, it works
With a variety of missions,
there's plenty of fun to found in Mighty Fin and you can even unlock
new costumes (60 to be precise) for your fish like hats, snorkel hear and even rabbit
ears. There is no multiplayer options for Mighty Fin and thankfully
it is not needed because this is a very sturdy single-player game.
Even when you finish the level, you might want to play again in
order to boost your score and try to get more multipliers. Mighty
Fin is definitely one happy go lucky fish!
Fin is a good looking game with its clean graphics with vibrant
colours and well made gaming environments. The musical score works
well with the gameplay as does the sound effects which in turn makes
this a must have game for your iPad. It's perfect for those short or
long gaming sessions! I really enjoyed Mighty Fin and considering
the feedback from the office and more importantly around the world,
folks are really getting something out of this original game.
