TGWK’s Review of “Up With a Fish” v1.01 (iOS)

In our quest to find children friendly games, we came across this Dr. Seuss themed game called Up With a FIsh! by developer Oceanhouse Media. Up With a Fish! is a children friendly stacking game where the object of the game is to see how many fish bowls you can stack up. While doing so, you can also stack up varies objects from the Dr. Seuss stories and use them to increase your score. Watch out for falling “THINGS” though as they will destroy the tower you have built. There’s nothing too fancy about Up With a Fish! It’s just a simple casual game made for children to enjoy.

The game is very simple to play. You tilt your device left or right to move the Cat in the Hat in order to catch falling objects and stack them on top of your fish bowl. The higher the stack, the more points you get. When you see a fish bowl falling, catch it on the stack and it will break all the objects and land on top of the fish bowl below. Anything that was stacked gets added to your score. For each fish bowl you have stacked, it adds to your multiplier. However, if you miss a fish bowl, you lose one of your 3 lives. Miss 3 fish bowls and its game over. In the game, you also have to avoid falling “THINGS” which will break your stack and not give you any points for them.

I’m also loving the art in the game too because it includes a lot of original artwork by Dr. Seuss. All the falling objects, the background, and the characters are all by Dr. Seuss. It’s a very nice touch.

Up With a Fish! is a very fun children’s game. It says the game is for kids ages 5 and up but in all honestly, its simple enough for even a 3 year old to play. The controls are perfectly balanced for young players and the game is very easy to learn and pick up. It’s a basic stacking game, but because it features the Cat in the Hat and art by Dr. Seuss, children should really like this game.

Up With a Fish! is available now in the App Store for free (Limited Time Only). It is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 3.0 or later.
