Is that fish wearing a fedora? Yes. Yes it is.
The helicopter game has got a lot to answer for. My made-up research suggests that the DNA of that patient, probing, one-button survival mission must have mutated its way into at least seven per cent of all successful mobile games. And here's another one, starring a fish that's fond of hats.
For reasons it's best to leave buried deep in the minds of the Launching Pad Games people who wrote this guff, Fin needs a holiday and has signed up for a Round The World Tour. What that means for folk with iOS devices is an excuse to get sucked into another irrepressible, fun-filled one-buttonathon.
Like Tiny Wings and its ilk, you simply press the screen to make Fin dive, and let go to send him soaring into the air. With an array of bubbles to collect, it's the usual rhythm-based affair, where getting good means mentally mapping out each of the 16 levels like a person with nothing better to do.
Despite (or possibly thanks to) its barren, shamelessly derivative mechanics, you can't help buy into its casual nonsense.
If Mighty Fin demonstrates anything, it's the power of the unlockable hat. Seriously, who couldn't enjoy making a Rasta fish happy?
