Here fishy, fishy! Aww, aren’t those fishes just so adorable? Fishdom 3 features challenging match-3 games with a twist as well as plenty of awards and achievements to thrive for. The most interesting part is that the game provides you with your very own virtual fish tank! You can rear up to 18 different types of interactive fishes in it and can decorate it with more than 150 underwater décor items! You can even design as many tanks as you like! Sounds amazing? Well, dive in and enjoy!
After giving yourself a name in this game, you’re ready to go! You’ll be brought you your first aquarium. There’s a very clear-to-understand tutorial to guide you, in the form of Tina the turtle, on how to set up your aquarium and take care of your fishes.
What kind of an aquarium is it, if there are no fish? So, go ahead and buy yourself your first Flame Angelfish from the store! There are many other 3D fishes (up to 18 types) in the store, such as clownfish, yellow tang, butterflyfish and threadfin lookdown. However, you will need to be at a higher level to unlock most of the other fishes. The same goes to aquarium decorations and backgrounds as well. You can also choose your fish’s gender and name your fish, but just remember to do it before you purchase it.
Fishes in Fishdom 3 talk and interact with you and with other fishes. Best of all, they have quite quirky personalities that differs from fish to fish. It’s really interesting to watch your fishes talk and give them some of your attention. After all, fishes can get lonely too! In addition, if you want to learn more about the fishes, there is also a fishipedia that you can check out.
Furthermore, don’t forget to feed your fishes. They will only eat until they are full. You’ll then be rewarded with experience points! You will need to take good care of your tank as well so that the algae won’t be taking over your fish tank and kill off all your fishes. So, use the sponge provided to clean your tank whenever you see algae on it. If you want to sell off any of your fishes or decorations, you could do so by using the net to take them out from the tank.
To create a better and more beautiful environment for your little fishes to live in, you can choose from over 150 decorations and add them into your tank. There are many types of decorations, both themed and un-themed, such as plants, bubbling pots, and miniatures. You are allowed to move and resize the decorations if you wish. You can also change the background of your tank. Your tank has limited space for your fishes though, so you may need to buy new aquariums once your first aquarium is filled.
Nonetheless, if you plan on having a boast-worthy aquarium in Fishdom 3, you will definitely need a lot of money. The only way to earn it is by playing the match-3 games!
The tiles in this game are very varied and have an underwater theme. The type of tiles may even change from game to game. The controls in Fishdom 3, on the other hand, are the same as any match-3 game. You will need to make matches of 3 or more adjacent pieces to clear it from the board. For matches of 5 pieces, you will get a bomb that has a blast radius of 2 tiles while for matches of 6 pieces, you will get a dynamite that has a blast radius of 3 tiles instead! There are also firecrackers which will explore all neighboring tiles (1-tile blast radius). You can get them by getting a cascade match of 5 or more falling pieces.
Generally, the games in Fishdom 3 are not too difficult, but by adding obstacles and special tiles, the game became much more challenging and fun to play! Special tiles like gold or silver tiles will need to be cleared in order to win a game if they are present. Sometimes, the game covers a part of the board with earth and you will need to combine nearby pieces to clear the earth away. That’s not all, you will need to collect the hidden gold or diamonds in the earth before you can clear the level. Do take note that you are not required to completely clear all of the earth covered tiles away – you just needed to clear enough of them to access all the precious metals underneath.
There are also locked pieces that you will have to free first by making a combination before you can move it. The same goes for frozen tiles, though these tiles can fall (but you cannot move them), unlike locked tiles, making it somewhat easier to make combinations for them. As you progress, you will encounter even more obstacles and special tiles. Thankfully, the game does not limit the number of moves that you can make, but it has a timer instead.
On the right side of every game, you will see a time meter and that are 2 main stages on the meter – the gold stage and the silver. It is of course best to complete a game as quickly as possible so you can get the gold time bonus, along with many other bonuses, and earn even more money! Gold and diamonds collected in any stage with earth-covered tiles will also contribute to the score by providing a bonus.
Love playing it? Great! Besides the many normal levels that are available in Fishdom 3, you can also unlock bonus levels at level 30. If you’re a collector at heart who loves a good challenge, you can try to obtain all the achievements in the game. Be warned: There are some achievements that can be pretty hard to get!
The community in Fishdom 3 has managed to get the game Greenlit on Steam Greenlight and the game has also been ported to Xbox too! Being a game designed for a niche community, this is tremendous news! There are also plenty of videos and screenshots made by the community in Fishdom 3 to show off their beautiful fish tanks for the whole to see!
Fishdom 3 has somewhat cartoony 3D graphics, which may seem a bit dated, with very fluid animation. The fishes as well as the other forms of underwater life are all so colorful and detailed. The sound in the game has a rather limited but sufficient variety. It mainly consists of a catchy Hawaii/tropical music and the sound of bubbles being made underwater. It is relly relaxing.
In summary, Fishdom 3 is a match-3 game that has a fish tank for you to set up. There are so many ways to customize your fish tank – you can add decorations and plants or change the tank backgrounds… and not to mention, the many beautiful and cute 3D fishes that you can rear in your aquarium! Since these fishes have their own personalities, you can also enjoy interacting with your fishes or just watching them talk to each other! The match-3 game, on the other hand, is fun and can be really challenging. The different levels of match-3 available in the game are real brain teasers indeed! Everything about this game is truly fun. If you enjoyed Big Kahuna Reef before, Fishdom 3 is a game that you would definitely love. Try it out today!
