Fish Out of Water! by Halfbrick Studios splashes into the App Store

Fish Out of Water! is a new iPhone and iPad game by Halfbrick Studios, the makers of Jetpack Joyride, where you launch fish (and mammals) out of the ocean and into the sky. A group of crabs will judge your throws by total distance and number of skips performed by your fish.

There are six different fish dying to be launched and you must choose three for each round. Each fish has different strengths and you'll want to choose a good mix of qualities in your fish. The weather conditions also impact how your fish perform, so keep an eye out for storms, tsunamis, icebergs, and even jellyfish swarms!

A crew of crabs will judge your rounds. These crabs are quite the quirky little group, so you must keep all their personalities in consideration. One crab likes distance, another likes skips. There's a really generous crab who just loves handing out high scores and there's another grumpy crab who's hard to impress. Pleasing this group of crabs is quite the challenge!

Fish Out of Water also lets you compete in daily league score competitions with your friends. As different objectives are completed, players level up and unlock charms that can be crafted to unleash bonus powers.

I'm having a lot of fun with Fish Out of Water. It's a great time-killer game that you can play for a just a few moments, or sit back and play for longer periods of time.
