MonstaFish: a devilish breed of game released into global pool of Windows Phone 7: just be careful what you touch

For release: 30/05/2012

[A public service announcement]

UK-independent games developer, IronSun Studios break news of MonstaFish: an Xbox LIVE title for Windows Phone 7

MonstaFish is a twitch-based, action-puzzle game featuring a series of compelling modes with more bite than.. well, a toxic MonstaFish. Featuring intuitive touch controls, mouth-watering, comic book style graphics, and a commissioned soundtrack that will have you tapping both finger and foot to the beat of the game play.

Keep the water clean of polluting mutant MonstaFish in four different game modes, where you use various methods of lethal destruction to clear the pool.

·      In “Fish Hook” mode lower the hook down to rescue the goldfish, then manoeuvre it back up to the boat at the top, all while watching the clock run down. As the game gets progressively harder, you’ll have to rescue more and more fish

·      “Fish Hunt” is where you have to be as accurate as a sharpshooter with finger taps to hit the fish. MonstaFish shoot across the screen, getting steadily faster, but don’t miss or your pollution meter will go up. If it hits max – your game is up.

·      “Time Attack”; where it’s you and your finger against hordes of fish and the clock! MonstaFish come from both directions at once, in ever increasing waves, so just tap them as fast as you can to stop them in their tracks.

·      Finally there is MonstaFish mode itself, where your local friendly super-Octopus releases bubbles that you have to use to deflate the cunning MonstaFish. Either make bigger bubbles as quick as you can and burst them on the fish to get rid, or make loads of big bubbles to do more damage. If you are too slow – your pollution meter goes up and up until – Game Over!

If, after all that frenetic finger fun, you fancy chilling out, why not indulge in the ambience of your Fish Tank. Self-expression is the order of the day. Nurturing your school and keeping on top of the cleanliness of your tank will attract new fish for you to care for.

Play all MonstaFish modes to unlock a devilish array of Xbox LIVE achievements, or just play each game to be the top fish on the four different leader boards. With beautiful graphics, great sounds and a theme tune that will get in your head (free ringtone included in the full game) these deep waters are guaranteed to pull you under.

·      Keep the water clean of polluting mutant MonstaFish!
