Finlay your fears to rest.
Interested in this game? Read our Fish Out of Water! review.
Halfbrick's new iPhone and iPad game, Fish Out of Water!, tasks players with skipping marine life across the ocean to please five crabs in the hope of scoring a perfect 10. There's more to it than simply propelling a whale and blowfish through the air, so to help bump up your high score, we have some useful tips.
-Each creature behaves differently when you set it in motion, and understanding these unique traits will heavily impact your final score. Here's a quick look at all six.
Finlay: Dolphin with diving ability. Best to flick in a straight line.
Micro: Whale that catches big air when flicked. Naturally bounces along the water.
The Brothers: Splits into four fish when skipped. Will automatically sink if you flick it too high.
Olympus: Similar to Micro, this little guy automatically bounces along the surface.
Errol: A very bouncy blowfish.
Rocket: Weakest of all the fish. Like The Brothers, Rocket will sink if skipped too high. Instead, flick in a straight line as close to the surface as possible.
-After flicking your first fish, refrain from using boost. Why? Each yellow boostie collected will increase your boost bar.
-Weather changes every hour, going from sunny and calm waters to stormy seas. The condition of the waves may change a creature's ability, so if you don't perform well when it's cloudy, maybe it's a good idea to come back when the sun's out.
-Check the weather report by repeatedly tapping the icon on the top right corner of the screen.
-Complete achievements to level up, whereupon which you can choose one of three treasure chests to earn crystals. To check the current achievement and progress, tap the checkered flag on the bottom right corner of the screen.
-Combine crystals to gain valuable bonuses, such as a perfect 10 from one of the crabs, or 100 meters added to an attempt. That said, feel free to mix and match different colors, AKA heads and tails.
-You can combine crystals at any time, but can only do so once per three skipping attempts.
-All three fish share the same boost meter. It's a good idea to use boost sparingly in case you need it.
-Begin a round with the fish you feel most comfortable with. This way, you won't have to use much boost, thereby saving it for the other two fish.
-Not all crabs are created equal. Tap each judge to see what he or she prefers. Distance versus number of skips, for example.
-Don't waste boost on a fish nearing the end of its run. That is, unless it's the final fish.
-Use boost just as a fish hits the surface of the water to maximize speed and/or bounce.
-Tired of grinding for crystals? You can buy 50 and 250 via in-app purchase.
