Thanks Gabrien, I was going to skip it, assuming it was just another Tiny Wings Clone...in reverse.

No, it's quite different from Tiny Wings. Very leisurely pace at first, and a simplicity which belies its depth. Also for those who aren't aware, this is by the same guy who made Karoshi and They Need To Be Fed, which for mine is all you need to know.

Yup, that is all I need to know. I have to remember to check "other apps by this developer" more often.

You use your right thumb to determine how high the fish will jump to get stars. Not like tiny wings at all. Kinda a cross between angry birds and an endless runner. Pretty fun, worth trying for sure.

I actually bought this after seeing Gabrien post about it not long after the release of TNTBF2. Considering I've said I'll always have both TNTBF games and Karoshi on every single device I ever own, I was pretty disappointed in this to be honest. I know it's not geared towards the same crowd as the above mentioned games, but I just didn't find much to it and eventually deleted it after reaching the second world. Not for me, I guess.

I'd recommend giving it another chance if you can be bothered, only because it is in world 2 and 3 that slightly different mechanics and goals begin to come into play and add a fair bit of depth to the gameplay.
