The next title from Fugazo (makers of Cooking Academy and World Mosaics) will be a virtual aquarium game called FishCo. You’ll be responsible for running your very own aquarium shop by raising freshwater fish to sell to customers.
The game features many unique fish to raise, including gouramis, tetras, sailfin mollies and gorgeous betas (Siamese fighting fish). You’ll raise a fish from egg to adult by feeling them the proper food when they’re hungry (tetras like flake food, for example, while sailfin mollies will only eat bloodworms), adding plants to the aquarium to brighten up the tank, and keeping the tank clean by wiping algae off the glass.
Each of the game’s 40 levels has a set of goals to meet before time runs out, such as sell 3 tetras and 6 gouramis and earn $40. You’ll have to be careful though, because fish don’t always get along with each other. Zebra Cichlids, for example, like to eat smaller fish like Cardinal Tetras so you can’t have them both in the tank at the same time.
You’ll unlock 20 unique fish, 12 plants and 5 different tanks as the game progresses, as well as new filters, lighting and medicine to purchase. There’s also a Relaxed mode for people who don’t want a time limit, and a Sandbox mode where you can customize your own fish tank.
FishCo will be launching soon, so be sure to check back to Gamezebo for our official review and strategy guide.
