My daughter is a big fan of these aquarium games, how does it look on the iPad? Is there any plans for a "lite" version?

Thanks to all for checking my game out!

@weehomer
Currently iPad resolution is just a stretch up image of what it is in iPhone. You can check it at screenshot 6 - 10. HD art will come in time. But not soon.

Lite version sounds like a good idea, i will give it a go once i am done with the 1st patch for this game which includes 6 new fishes and some minor fixes [:

Hah I love the look of it. I have a friend who's colorblind and he'd really appreciate you guys making your game colorblind friendly. I'll be sure to tell him about this game

Argh screeshot 6 had me fooled, thinking that the icons on their foreheads were put there for colorblind friendly purposes. Oh well!

Hello, thanks for taking interest [: this game plays similiar to tamagotchi v1. Basically you are given a fish egg at the start of the game, and then it will pop into a baby fish a minute later (random gender), you can then give it a name. Depending how you take care of it, it will evolve into different type of fishes, currently there are 44 different fishes in the game. [:
