So I played a fair bit of this today, while the game is completely in Italian with no option to change to English it is very easy to play. Anything I didn't understand and was interested in knowing about I just used Google Translate to type and find out what it was.

Basically you have a Magikarp in a little pond of your own. You can train him 3 times and each turn recharges 30 minutes each. One is a jumping meter Magikarp will jump at and he will get experience. Another is a punching bag he will jump against (all automatic jumping no tap required).

In Magikarps pond there are random berries you can tap for him to eat and he'll get experience from them. It also seems you can level up the berries using coins via a shop. You can tap berries one by one for him to eat, you can tap a few of them quickly one after another and he'll eat the ones you tapped. Or also multi touch a few berries and he'll eat them too.

Your Magikarp will grow the more you feed him and level him up, and you can enter him in League like tournaments to face off against other Magikarp to see which can jump highest.

There are also decorations you can buy which cost Diamonds that look like they boost exp given by the berries.

That's about all I can say for now.

So far it sounds kind of pointless but I'd like to wait and see as it does look very attractive.

I doubt that poor little magicarp will get to turn into a gyrados right? That could be a much cooler pet.

This is such a dumb game, and yet I feel strangely compelled to keep playing a bit longer. The Karp you train can actually get permenantly auto-killed during random events, haha. Such a pointless game, but there is something about it.

Would have been so much better if they made a bar you had to tap at a certain time for it to jump at it's full height

Could have been cool but seems a bit pointless has a whole clicker thing going on without the clicking. Takes ages to watch the same things over and over no real gameplay and basically you just repeat everything to gain more trainer exp that lets you do things quicker next time with your next one. A bit like prestiege but you don't get to chose when it happens.
