Oh fishie, fishie, fishie, fish

The title of this post is a reference to this video, which is what I instantly thought of upon hearing the name of the new WiiWare game from DK Games released today, Fishie Fishie. And then I watched the trailer and became entranced.

Don’t let the name fool you. This game looks intense. A hundred levels of fish eating fish and pure chaos controlled only by one button. That sort of simplicity really appeals to me, especially if the game is as frantic as the above trailer would suggest.

There’s a press release with some more details beyond the fold. I think I’m going to go and download this tonight and give it a spin. Is it appealing to anyone else?

 

DK Games Releases FISHIE FISHIE for WiiWare

Paris, 5 april 2010.

Today, DK Games, a premier independent video game developer, releases Fishie Fishie their one-button game for those that like something a little different. Fishie Fishie is first released in the Americas, followed by Europe at a later date.

Fishie Fishie is a game that will test your reflexes to the max. Under its colorful, sweet exterior lurks a game that is both ridiculously easy to learn and terrifically challenging to master. You are a fish(ie) who has to survive over 100 levels in various game modes, in situations that just get crazier and crazier! “Capture the Star”, “Soccer”, “Survival”, playing solo or in a team… And amazingly the whole game is played with just one button! No need to get to grips with complicated commands. Here, all you need to do is press the A Button on your Wii Remote™.

Fishie Fishie starts with a comprehensive tutorial that allows the player to discover immediately how much fun the game is going to be. To control their agile fishie with just one button, players will have to develop a sense of rhythm, razor-sharp reflexes and learn to anticipate potential hazards. And team play is a guaranteed blast with laughs aplenty! Even the most experienced players will have to adapt in order to succeed.

And once everyone’s at the top of their game it’s time for the ultimate challenge: win the 21 available rewards as quickly as possible. Each action is timed, each second counts. You’ll need strategy to keep matches as short as possible and beat the record.

The fishies in Fishie Fishie may look sweet, but they’re going to make you sweat. You have been warned!
