PlayBook has finally reached the point where I hoped it would be when I unboxed it. Shoal is another game Made with the Marmalade SDK by Ideaworks Game Studio. And it’s instant addiction! Pure and simple this is a fun game. You’ll pick it up and keep playing till it’s over!
Shoal is compatible with BlackBerry PlayBook tablet 1.x OS and priced at a super saving $0.99 all the time! It’s difficult to argue with marketing like that!
° Innovative touchscreen controls
Touch the screen to drive the fish away from your finger but be careful not to startle them! ° Unlimited gameplay
Play through unlimited levels that get progressively harder as you proceed. A clever level generation algorithm ensures that each level is unique, and contains a different balance of dangers than the level before. ° Multiple enemies with unique attacks
Each enemy type presents a different danger to the shoal – learn their attacks so you can avoid them! ° Realistic fish-schooling algorithm
Watch as the fish congregate and swim together, just like in nature. ° Replenish your shoal along the way
Replenish your shoal by collecting stray fish along the way.
This was honestly one of those judged by the cover purchases. As soon as I saw the title and cute fish my fingers were already gunning for the purchase button. And wow am I glad it’s so much fun!
The goal of Shoal is to get your shoal of fish to the finish line all the while dodging evil piranha, strategically placed worms on fishhooks, electrifying jellyfish and more! You must have at least 50% of you shoal when you reach the finish line to progress. Don’t fret if you lose a couple on the way though because you’ll pick up some random fish on your swim. Just don’t get too brave or you’ll lose a whole lot and quickly!
Cute cruising sounds drum through your journey and happiness ensues.. it’s very hard to put this game down. Innovative controls have you touching all around the shoal of fish to keep them in a group while moving onward. As I got more comfortable with the mechanics I learned how to get around and under obstacles swiftly. A lot of patience and timing helps too.
The realistic fish-schooling algorithm, unique levels and clever controls make this a classic adventure! PlayBook gamers are going to want to pick this one up! Hit the link for more info.
