Cheaper items PLEEZ!

It is almost impossible to get most research items in the store. Unless this game is your halftime job. Also the words are soooooo tiny! Ever tried reading it yourself? Tanks should house at least ten fish and you should be able to buy more tanks or unlock them. I ended having to use my sell tank as a breeding one!!!!!! Magic fish should be much easier to find too and the sickness should be described better. I am not rating this app any higher than this until you make some attempt to these issues.

Fish game fan ,

100% just like the pc version.

Awsome game :)! All these ppl saying
they cant see anything or play this game cuz its too blurry, are obviously blind or wear glasses. I have 20/20 vision and can read everything in this game and i do not wear glasses.
The only 2 words that are blurry in this game are right next to the fish isolation box and they say "Health" and "Food". Everything else in the game is perfectly readable and clear.

if you liked fish tycoon on pc, youll like this game. Also the Lite version is the full version just with 2 tanks only and they hold 7 fish max each tank.

Also fish do not die too fast or any other crap others are saying. This game is exact to the pc version and plays properly. Also its easier to just throw the fish away that get sick, saves you money in the long run.

AND you can set your own price for each fish****, just put one in the isolation box and tap "species". And hit the back arrow on the calculator that is there. its that easy.

All in all fun game :). Just like i remember. if a baby fish dies quickly, its becuz its a rare breed and cant survive in your tank without doing environment research first*.

The game is fairly difficult, and the graphics are really bad. Ads run across the top of the game all the time, and squishes the screen until its almost impossible to see what anything says and everything looks blurry. The bigger the ad, the worse the graphics.

The bad graphics also make it impossible to make out what customers are thinking, so you have no way of knowing How they are reacting to your fish.

Dead fish turn white and freeze in place, making it really hard to find them in some areas of the tank, it'd be much easier to have them float to the top, since they still take up tank space even when they're dead.

I haven't gotten far enough in the game to where I would need to research my tank options but from what I've heard that's impossible unless you buy the full version, which actually makes me want to just delete the app rather than pay for it.

2/5 This app definitely has some potential, but it still needs a lot of work.
