Wow. Okay, this game is actually pretty good.

The graphic style is pretty good and funny actually Basically you have several ways to interact with your salmons and the objective is to make them avoid the various obstacles (bears, fishing nets, fishing hooks). There is also a global high score (I'm number 8 now but surely I'll be beaten in no time ).

The gameplay reminds me of Moondrop from NimbleBit actually (the controls are a but different though).

Thanks Prab. Never seen Moondrop before. Will D/L to check it out. I was thinking a cross between Koi Pond and Flight Control initially, but it changed a bit during the writing (as they do).

Cheers,
Andrew.

Hi Andrew, in Moon Drop, you navigate a swarm of astronauts by propelling them away from where your finger touches the screen (only if they are above where your finger is touching). The controls are different from your game, but I like how in both games you have to control a swarm of units

Anyway, Im finding the tap and tilt to be most useful to navigate the salmon. Nice game And thanks again for the code.

No problem

I find dragging works better than tapping, but that's just me!

So is there any significance to the fish colors? Is there a point to group same colors together?

You must get one male(blue) and one female(pink) up the river.
