    The Fish Dies in the End is an iOS game developed with cocos2d featuring a cute little fish trying to survive as long as possible against all odds. The game is OUT now on the App Store. Check it out!

    I'm proud to announce the release of The Fish Dies in the End 1.1 - The Fish Strikes Back! For those who don't know the game, it's an undersea, pick up and play game featuring a cute little fish trying to survive as long as possible against all odds. The game has Retina support and is compatible with Game Center (Leaderboards and Achievements).

    The new update has been made with the players' suggestions in mind and adds many improvements to the game, including better placement of enemies and obstacles, more dynamic backgrounds, tutorial screens, better performance, and more. Most notably, there are three new power-ups that should provide more variety and entertainment to the players (and some much-needed help, of course!).

    You can visit our website: http://www.thefishdies.com for more info.
    There's also a Twitter profile (@thefishdies) and Facebook page. So please follow/like us if interested!

    Features:

    • Escape from several unique obstacles and enemies - beware of sharks!
    • Control the fish with only one touch. Anyone can play!
    • Several different power-ups to help you achieve your goal!
    • Experience a different game every time you play with randomly generated enemies!

    Interesting that you mention this! The name generates a lot of attention everytime we talk about the game, which is exactly what we wanted.

    Thankfully, the vast majority of people seem to like it. Unfortunately, some people like you don't like it as well :(. Not really a lot we can do, I only hope that you change your mind and decide to try the game anyway, I'm sure you'll like it :).

    Thanks for the comment!

    @firteen888: Not exactly, I wasn't aware of the book when I chose the name, but it has been brought to my attention on another forum. At least it seems like a good book! :D. Thanks for the comment.

    @Apple OC: Good one! :p . Thanks for the comment as well.

    I've been interviewed by Joystiq regarding The Fish Dies in the End. Really happy with it! Please take a look. In other news, I'm already at work on the first update for the game that should feature many suggestions I received from players since the release of the game. If you have anything you'd like to see changed or added to the game, let me know.
