Bellyfish is a new addition to Apple App Store with some added fun for those who want to play endless games like Temple run or Jetpack Joyride. If you are looking for a new genre, then it might be a disappointment as it really becomes difficult for the developers to re-invent the wheel altogether. Bellyfish, as the name indicates, is the game with central character of FISH. The fish lives inside water so the game setting are going to take you under water for complete duration of game play. The endless games coming these days lack some vision and make users fed up after sometime of play but here in this game a slight touch of innovation is found which has focused on a polished game that, while entertaining enough, makes little attempt to deviate from the well-established endless on going formula.
Remember that Bellyfish being an endless game is quite addictive and you are going to love it if you are fond of playing such games in routine. The Bellyfish is a fish with a love of air bubbles. Every time she sucks an air bubble in, she is going to expand in size and takes trickier to negotiate small gaps. For a player who is going to encounter endless game for the first time, it is just that you have to travel as long as possible inside the water by clearing obstacles. This game is almost like many others in that you will have initially a very simple go through while after crossing some distance, the passage will become much more difficult. As a matter of fact I have seen people getting bored during such initial phase of the games but it will be more challenging after some time.
Evil Enemies – Cute Interface
In the beginning you are stuck right on to the bottom of ocean from where Bellyfish will climb upwards. Here the task will be dodging amoeba, jellyfish and other deep-sea miscreants – all deviously arranged to create a game that turns out to be far tougher than its cute, casual appearance might suggest. As you swish back and forth, you will be able to collect bubbles and slowly increase your health letting you withstand more than a single collision with one of the game’s exotic enemies.
To add further interest, the developers have added quite a large number of missions with some attraction of good bonuses. It is not that you have to just go with the pace and everything will be more difficult with the passage of distance. Rather, to add interest, difficulty level in the game is well-balanced like at some place you will find obstacles easier than the past so as to keep you inside the game. At times the obstacles become really difficult to avoid and players are challenged with much more difficulties. The tilt control of your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch is going to help you because tilt also has its own role to play. Starting a game invokes a choice, depending upon the position of your iOS device, thereby meaning it’s possible to play Bellyfish from a variety of different perspectives. Controls are responsive too, so it never feels like one is battling the control method.
Like many other games you will also find a need to get some upgrades which are also available in the form of In App purchases. But these upgrades in the form of currencies can also be acquired Free by accomplishment of missions. So it is a better idea to complete the task and avoid purchasing of attractive upgrades. However, if you are desperate for some early achievement then simply punish your credit card for necessary upgrades. The initial price of this game is reasonable, just $0.99 and it is a universal app compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod and is well optimized for iPhone 5 /iPad Mini. You just need to have iOS 4.3 or above inside iDevice to play this game.
