I have always been a fan of Big Fish Games. In fact, two of my favorite games can be found at Big Fish Games. Those games would be Bejewled 3 and Zuma’s Revenge. I have both of these downloaded on my computer. I’m currently stuck on Zuma’s Revenge. When I finally beat the level it is going to be extremely satisfying. When I was asked to review a Big Fish Games game. I decided to let my daughter chose the game. However before she chose a game I took advantage of the free trial. You can download any game (more then one) and try it out for one hour. This is awesome, because who wants to purchase a game and then find out they really have no interest in it. So I gave Honey a few choices and then we downloaded Fishdom 3.
When Honey found out she could create here own virtual fish tank she decided this was the game for her. I let her and her brothers play the game for a while to see if it would be a one time download and forget or a game that they would continue to play. As of the writing of this blog post my son (who plays it the most) is currently on level 25. We had a little scare this past weekend when I had Geek Squad doing a little cleaning, uninstalled Big Fish Games and Fishdom 3. Thankfully once I re-installed the game all his achievements were still there. A quick run down of Fishdom 3.
The object is to purchase a fish tank, fish, decorations, backgrounds, etc from the store to create a beautiful aquarium.
However in order to purchase these items from the store you must first earn money. You do this by playing a Match 3 games. These are small games within the game where you match 3 items and the three items disappear dropping additional items until you have cleared the board.
The games get progressively more challenging as you level up. As you collect more money and clear levels you can also purchase additional aquariums. This is great, because after a while your tank will get full and in order to make the game interesting you need more places to store your store bought decorations.
In addition to the games and tanks you also will need to feed your fish so they continue to live. You can also catch and sell them. You can also see your achievements at any point in time by hovering over the achievements button. All of these features can be found on the bottom row of icons seen in the photo above. There is also a bonus level once you get to level 30, which I suspect is my son’s ultimate goal.
Fishdom 3 is just one of the fun games at Big Fish Games. With the free one hour trial you can try out any of the games before you purchase. I have also found that they have quite a lot of sales going on all the time. We purchased a second game for my daughter for only $2.99. You can get 70% off a game with your first purchase. The great thing is there is no danger of losing your game should you get a new computer. I mentioned above that we had ours uninstalled. All I had to do was log back into our Big Fish Games account and download the Big Fish Games Manager. Once I was set up it had my purchase history and I was easily able to download the games again.
