    Hello everybody,
    here is the release of my first iphone game called Fish!
    It's a combination of casual action with free style aquarium gameplay. It also features a 2D fluid dynamics engine which responds to tilting events on the iphone.

    Itunes link: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=297436859&mt=8

    The youtube video of some of the gameplay is here:

    I appreciate all comments(good and bad). This is my first iphone app so I am rightly nervous. Comments on the game will be nice so I can improve on it. (Just comment on the video if you aren't going to buy it. No big deal. )

    thanks!
    Jiayi

    There are a couple of modes in the game.
    The first is the basic game mode where you go in and collect those gold nuggets connected by those springy green links... The patterns get more intricate as you level up.

    The second mode is a free style aquarium mode where you can drop in a bunch of fish, feed them. You can also draw your own, upload it into the iphone's photo library and drop them into your virtual aquarium.

    Thank you for your time in taking a look at the game!

    One thing I wonder about is the movement of the water as you rotate the device. I'm not a programmer and know nothing about it, so it may be a silly question, but the water movement looks very similar to Aqua Forest, and it seems to me that it's a little too slow. That's one thing that bothers me about Aqua Forest. It's like it's kind of in slow motion as you rotate and the water crashes down. I don't know if it's intentional or if it's just not feasible to make the water move more quickly. I just think it would look better that way. If it's possible, maybe have a slider that allows you to make adjustments, as I'm sure some people prefer it to be slower. Anyway, it looks interesting and I hope it does very well. :)
