Brazilian company Fuze.cc is pleased to announce the 2.0 version of the iOS game The Fish Dies in the End, an undersea, pick up and play game featuring a cute little fish trying to survive as long as possible. The game has been downloaded more than 70.000 times worldwide in its previous incarnations and is now re-released with many improvements based on players' suggestions. The basic gameplay is as follows: the fish remains in the same horizontal position, near the left edge of the screen, and as he swims all manner of sea denizens pass from right to left. Predators are avoided by controlling his buoyancy: touch the screen and he rises, release and he descends. The fish has three lives during each round of gameplay, and the game features 3 levels of difficulty.
The underwater environment of the game is vibrant, with a dynamic background, filled with constantly moving shafts of sunlight from the surface, fragile air bubbles rising at different rates, rock formations, and schools of fish in the background. The old nemeses are all back, and include carnivorous sea plants, starfish, sea urchins, piranhas, jellyfish, rays, and jaw-snapping sharks. The mighty sharks are special, ferocious enemies and will appear constantly to try and kill the fish. The new version also introduces new enemies and obstacles, like seasnakes and harpoons that should make the game even more diverse and fun. The game is endless, and continues until the fish dies, having used all three lives (turning pearlescent, haloed, and rising heavenward). Screens are generated randomly, so no two games are ever the same.
