Staying alive even when the Nintendo DS is off, Fish Tycoon is a fish-breeding simulation that lets players raise fish in real-time virtual aquariums and crossbreed them to their liking to create new breeds to sell in their store. Selling fish provides funding for supplies, medicine, special chemicals, technology research and store advertising to attract more customers. Players start with a small selection of fish that they must nurture and breed as they work to discover the correct genetic combination for the "7 Magic Fish."
  • 7 exclusive fish yield nearly twice as many fish types as the PC version (over 750!)
  • All new 3D environments and several new tank decorations
  • Extensive use of the Touch Screen to breed fish, make purchases and decorate tanks
  • Simulated real-time experience yields potential surprises every time you turn the game on - choose from 4 speed options to dictate how time passes in game
  • Take regular care of your fish or watch your hard work get flushed down the drain!
  • Set your own prices for specific fish based on prior sales and present needs
  • Buy fish tanks, decorations, plants, fish eggs, fish food, and medicine to enhance the aesthetic of your tank
  • Research environment, food, and advertising techniques to discover how to keep your rare fish healthy, feed more fish per feeding and attract additional customers

I loved this game from day one when I initially had it on the PC. When it came out on the DS I just could not resist to purchase this jewel of a game! It works in real-time or can be paused. Trying to create the correct hybrid of fish in order to collect the special breeds will keep you guessing and intrigued as you create many different breeds of fish which you can sell off. I thought this was one of a kind and if your into tycoon games or even fish keeping then this game is definately for you. Seems to suit all ages aswell!! Brilliant!!

OK so this game took a while for me to like it. I actually put it away for a few months but when I went back to it and re played it I am really enjoying it now.

Sure, it does take a while before you get any fun out of it. You need to know the right way to play it to actually enjoy it.

At first you can only breed the same fish (same species) if you mix species at first they wont survive. What you need to do is breed fish constantly and sell them, you need to breed enough to fill both the tank 1 and sale tank so thats 40 fish on the go all the time. You need to save up money to buy all 3 reasearch tank levels before you can start experimenting with mixing breeds and coming up with new fish species which is when you can make your money.

Fun game when you get into it with hours of gameplay :)

This game is a glorified screen saver for your ds. You can do only so much , breed fish , sell and erm thats it . Its in real time so you do 2 minutes of play then leave it for a day only to play 2-3 minutes more.....
