Glowfish is a 2D casual/adventure game with beautiful looking and colorful enviroments, cartoonish characters and relaxing music.
The main goal in the levels is to collect enough friendly fishes to unlock gates which let you proceed further until you reach a big swirl that takes you to the next level.
The game features 50 varying levels across 5 different stages, boss fights at every last level of a stage, tons of different enemies and threats (really, I stopped counting after some time) and also 'Chums', which accompany and assist you on your way and have their very own, upgradable, abilities. Upgrading can be done by collecting coins which are spread throughout the levels.
If you take your time to explore the levels, collect all coins and search for the secret areas the playtime should be around 8-10 hours.
I highly recommend to play the game with a Xbox360 controller so you can lay back and relax while playing the game. :)
Beautiful, casual, light, relaxing, and fun. Easy to beat, which any child can do, but takes a bit of work and a lot of attention to detail to 100%. It has a few minor flaws, but nothing that should take the fun from it.
*Gnome Seal of Approval* Great casual game meant for the younger ones. It's a side scrolling adventure where you control a cute little creature and are looking to rescue your girlfriend from the evil Dr. Urchin. You combat the bad guys by bumping into them if you have enough friends orbiting you or circling around them if you have too few to use the bumping method.
Originally meant for iPads so the controls are simple, yet the game has some good ideas to keep the gameplay interesting.
An initially fun casual adventure that winds up repetitive and too lengthy. You're a glowfish who travels through 50 levels to rescue your sweetheart while attracting smaller fish to help you out on your journey. You find these fish in the environment and by destroying enemies, and you'll need them for combat and to deposit at conch shells (checkpoints) to progress.
Over the course of the game you earn 8 companions with unique abilities to help you out, such as slowing enemies or protecting you from hits, but only take one with you at a time. Coins are the game's currency and are used to upgrade companion abilities. Enemies are destroyed by circling them or putting up a swirling barrier of fish, the strength of which is determined by number of followers vs enemy size.
Final boss battle is great, the game is absolutely beautiful and maneuvering is so fluid you can play with a single hand and your mouse. Still, it's hard to recommend due to its repetitive and shallow nature.
Ideal when you just want to play a few minutes. Not a big adventure, nor really difficult, but it's a fun little game. Cute fishies. Great for kids too, though not too young because it has some 'scary' monsters in it. I bought this in a bundle, but it's worth the full price.
Glowfish is a charming casual game. The graphics are colorful and the sounds are cute. Makes sense right, since it's a casual game. Well, anyway, the goal is to guide a fish towards a clam of some sort. Near the clam is a stream that blocks the way. In order to continue you have to collect other (friendly) fish by killing enemies. There are coins to collect as well. The coins can be used for upgrading your companions. It's all straightforward but good fun nonetheless. So if you're into casual games Glowfish might just be the thing for you.
