I love the game and have played almost daily for 1.5 years. Rarely do I purchase anything. The game developers are generous with rewards and if I have difficulty getting through a level it is rare for me not to be able to move past it by using one of each of the 3 rewards. It is almost a guaranteed win then. Occasionally, however the free bombs end up too close together to help much or they land in a spot that ruins a match that leads to a bomb, but that’s life, I guess. Although the characters are cute, I find the penguin annoying, and are penguins really under the water anyway? Also, the new “specialty” fish are VERY DIFFICULT to determine if you have enough of the right coupons to redeem. It would be nice to get rid of this or simplify it. If you have enough coupons-gold, silver or bronze just tell me which fish I can choose from. Otherwise, it’s just too much work to figure it out and they aren’t that cute anyway, so I just ignore it. Thank you for being generous with lives and awards because it keeps the fun going and not too frustrating to keep playing. Today I got 6 hrs of free lives but had a busy day planned and when I logged back in it automatically started the timer whereas in the past you could choose when to begin your free time so you didn’t lose it all when you had to go to work! Now instead of allowing you to choose it just starts the next time you go into the game. Really annoying! Overall, a great game. Some levels more challenging than others.
I absolutely love this game! I have had this game over a year and unlike similar games I haven’t deleted this one because it doesn’t nickel and dime you. I have spent a some money because I appreciate the hard work and how generous the developers are with this game! You don’t need to spend anything to win- every level can be won if you keep trying, some levels may take many tries. I love the unlimited lives, but wish it was back to where I could chose when it started because some days I play at least an hour before I earn the unlimited lives and then get an hour or two of unlimited and really don’t have that time to use it that’s why I’m rating it 4 stars not 5. Totally love the different games each season and the themes! The fish communicating is so comical, it really brightens my day. I enjoy decorating and making each tank unique, too! The sound isn’t working on my game- I updated and kind of miss hearing the squid they’re so cute but not having sound isn’t that big of a deal, the commercials sound works when I go to earn diamonds or coins, another feature I like not just because I can earn more but because some pretty cool apps and useful products are advertised on this feature but I choose when I get to see the commercials they don’t just pop up randomly and get annoying. I will definitely be downloading other apps from these developers!
I’m at level 4245 and the final group of the last 4 tanks (for now at least). Obviously a fun and addictive game but could use more mini game variety (i’m tired of helping the penguin find pearls and the ray collect bolts - i look forward to the gold bar expeditions). But the other minor annoyance is each tank used to have its own theme music and now there is little to none - it is the same three tunes recycled over and over and over - drives me nuts ! I wish I could select my own tracks to listen to from my favorite tanks. Also, not sure if it is developer laziness but the decorations and unique fish options also decrease in the later tanks. IMO every new tank should have a) it’s own theme music (that plays continuously not just for the first 2-3 visits) b) it’s own unique fish “mascot”, c) a large variety of high coin decorations so I do t have to clutter my tank with “stuff” (since you seem to limit the total # fish per tank). Also, I’ve had the same fish to choose from for the past 3 sets of 4 tanks - I can only choose from the expensive fish to get stars (since you limit total fish per tank). Those are my big gripes - and spending a lot to get boosters and such, of course (I’m talking $20+ per day sometimes if I’m trying to make significant progress)!
I’ve played over 2,250 levels, so I know the tendencies of the game. If you roll along using too many free helps the game will start to self sabotage. Frequently challenges are offered where you can earn rewards for consecutive wins, but if you try to stay on the top level for too long, that sabotage comes in to play. For example, I just reached a level where the pieces are arranged to allow you to form two dynamites to start the level. Forming them are necessary to pass the level. I reached the level at the top of the challenge with five free helps, and all the helps (none as powerful as a dynamite) landed on the pieces needed to form the dynamite, rendering it impossible to do so. I figured it was a fluke and tried the level again. The four helps I got once again landed on the same pieces. The same thing happened with three helps, then two, then one. Considering there were over 40 other tiles those helps could have landed on, the consistent sabotage had to be deliberate. Saving your helps to be able to get on a roll like that is what makes the game fun, so the game deliberately making you lose is frustrating. Since games are supposed to be enjoyable and stuff like this has happened often enough that I know it is not a fluke, I will be deleting this game rather than waste any more time on it. I urge you to skip this download and search for something else to spend your time on—something that allows you to have fun without purposefully failing you.
After a year or so playing and on level 2024 I finally deleted this game. Enjoyed playing, didn’t spend money on it very often. Just got tired of the manipulative algorithm that would have you run out of moves or time with just one move to win. Also, annoyed when I still have a few moves but game won’t release the bubbles needed to finish level. So goodbye Fishdom, I won’t miss you and sure you won’t miss me. Also lowered my rating. The following is a previous review since I simply edited to say goodbye. Tiffer roll your eyes at this. Play this game as a way to unwind and mostly enjoy it. I spend some money on it from time to time but not much. A few times I’ve almost deleted it because the game at times seems designed to make you spend money which I get, so I’m patient and stay stuck on a level at times for a few days. Really irritates me when the board is completely cleared and you have a few moves left and need only one more bubble but the game won’t release a bubble, grrr. Those are the times I nearly deleted. I also despise the new reward system of vouchers for designer fish. Yuck, those fish are ugly and I’d rather have the old reward system back where you get power ups. Another ploy to get players to spend. I’m in the 1700s on levels so been playing awhile. Maybe not much longer though if changes keep being made to squeeze me for money.
