Review by Dylan
Fishco is a business simulation game that lets you, with the help of your partner Tracy, build a pet store into a successful venture through breeding, caring for, and selling fish. 40 levels exists in this fish selling simulation, all of which take place in your fish tanks. If you are a fan of simulation games and are looking for a less challenging game, or if you are a fish enthusiast looking to get your hands on 20 of the most beautiful fish species, this game is for you.
Raise and Sell Fish
Like mentioned above, you are partners with Tracy in this fish store adventure. The two of you have been saving your money for awhile, and now you finally have enough to buy some tanks, purchase some eggs, and start selling fish. Through this game Tracy acts as your guide and overseer. You are in control of the day to day actions of breeding and selling fish, while Tracy chimes in to give you advice and the next objectives to make your business grow.
Fish Can Eat Up Your Profits
As far as the day to day is concerned it is your job to clean and maintain the tanks, feed your fish, and sell them for profit. Daily tasks, which are also the different levels, may consist of objects such as selling three carnivorous Cichlids, four Tetras, purchasing two plants, and making $100 profit. You must be aware of the conditions of your tank and factors like Cichlids being meat eaters. If you place them in the same tank as smaller fish they will eat them without hesitating. Part of your job as Tracy's partner is to arrange the fish and tanks for the most and quickest profit. Having one type of fish eat another cuts into your profits and takes time.
Various Game Modes
Fishco offers 3 levels of play, though differences between the levels is sparse. There is challenge mode, relax mode, and sandbox mode. Sandbox mode provides you an objective free tank, allowing you to build it to suit your own wants and needs. This mode is the free-play with out any tasks. Challenge mode and relax mode are essentially one in the same. Both modes put you against the same levels with the same objectives. However, relax mode removes the timed element challenge mode has. You'll feel less pressure in relax mode.
Conclusion - About As Exciting as Cleaning a Fish Tank
Overall, Fishco doesn't do too much wrong when it comes to gameplay. This is just a simple game that will keep you occupied. The graphics are good, but the objectives and levels are easy and require very little strategy. Playing relatively similar levels one after the other can become monotonous, but other than this the game doesn't have a ton of flaws.
That being said the game doesn't stand out in a positive way either. This game just kind of exists. You might find it fun if you play with the understanding that you won't be blown away with excitement and objectives. This game is most playable for younger users, boy or girl, interested in animals and fish.
