March 26th, Brisbane, Australia – Over the past three years, Halfbrick has established itself as one of the most powerful players in the world of mobile games. Having gained over 500 million downloads worldwide and a huge fan base always hungry for more, today marks the announcement of the Australian studio’s newest mobile hit – Fish Out Of Water!
A daredevil group of feisty fish are longing to soar above the ocean and see the world from a whole new perspective! Built with an entirely one-touch interface, players simply throw their fish to send them flying through the clouds and skipping across the waves. Characters include the speed demon Rocket, the massive whale Micro and a vacant blowfish named Errol!
In each round, players have three throws, choosing the best fish depending on their personal preference and the conditions of the ocean. The weather changes every hour, from a glassy calm surface to a raging thunderstorm. There’s even potential for glaciers, geysers and a bouncing jellyfish invasion! Each fish has their own strengths and weaknesses, so it’s all part of the strategy getting the most out of every turn.
At the end of three throws, the Crab Crew will judge the performance based on distance, number of skips and other unique factors. From there, players can share their score, upload to the daily league leaderboards and check their level progress. As different objectives are completed, players level up and unlock gems which can be used to activate awesome bonus powers at the start of each game.
Halfbrick is known for its simple, satisfying and incredibly polished games, with Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride creator Luke Muscat and his team leading the design.
“We’re always pumped to get new games into the hands of our fans,” said Muscat. “ Fish Out Of Water has been an amazing ride so far, keeping the simplicity of Halfbrick games intact but introducing a vibrant personality through all of our fishy characters. It’s a complete package and we’re almost ready to roll!”
Fish Out Of Water is coming to iOS devices worldwide for US$0.99 with a release date to be announced shortly.
