This is a pretty standard puzzle game. I always try to give games like these the benefit of the doubt in case they add something new, and they often do, but this one is kind of stock. I'm sure you've played games like this before: You're given a little gun at the bottom center of the screen and you need to shoot colored balls (or in this case pufferfish) to create groups of three and thus score. No, fish that started out in groups of three don't count; you need to actually create groups yourself.

What this game adds to a fairly standard formula is a fish/aquatic aesthetic and some... I don't know what the word for it is. It's that kind of music that just sounds like underwater. It's nice and all, but there's only one song and it's kind of loud and intrusive. You'll thank yourself for hitting the mute button. A more subtle, quieter soundtrack with more songs would be quite welcome, but we just get the one. There are also no sound effects that I could see apart from the music itself, so you're not losing much by muting it.

The game is divided up into levels, as these often are, and the levels do, in fact, get trickier as time goes by. You need to angle your fish, bounce them off the walls without letting them touch the floor and explode, and wow this sentence came out really weird. In a few levels some fish will come back in a different color, which kind of adds to the challenge of it but doesn't make the gameplay all that much more interesting. There is a skill aspect to it if you pride yourself on your ability to bounce fish off of walls. It's pretty tricky because where your cursor is pointing won't necessarily be where your fish end up due to the width of the fish themselves, so if you like skill shots then this is a good game to practice with.

I will give kudos to the game's designers in that your gun is only loaded with fish of colors that are already on-screen, so if you eliminate all of the blue fish (you racist) you won't need to worry about them anymore. We dodged a bullet on that one, because I would have been angry if the game had forced me to start adding colors I've already eliminated in order to get to the colors I need.

I'm going to be honest with you and say that I only played a few levels in, because after a while I got tired of the music, the gameplay, and the advertisements. Yes, in-between levels the game will inexplicably show you an advertisement for what I think--and I could be wrong--is the author's website. It's intrusive and annoying and completely unnecessary. TreSensa, free tip: We'll see the advertisements just fine if you just put them in a banner on the bottom. Forcing me to look at one and wait for the "close" button to come up every time I press the "next" button just takes me out of the game.

This game comes with a shop, and again I'm going to be honest and admit I didn't really use it other than to glance at it and see what was in there. I don't really understand why games like this feel the need to add a shop. It's already a perfectly solid puzzle game, if a little bit samey and in need of a new soundtrack. Maybe the bombs, rockets, and extra time would have helped me, but I didn't really feel myself getting engaged enough to find out. If you like puzzle games, maybe you'll feel differently from me, and that's fine with me.

For a game that accomplishes exactly what it set out to do, 4 stars out of 10.
