Excerpt: I have wanted a fish tank for some time now, but since they are a bit expensive and my youngest son would probably knock it over I settled on playing Fish Tycoon on the Nintendo DS. I was extremely excited to be able to review this game, and get a real time fish tank (editor: albeit a digital one). Seven magical fish can be breed, fish can be sold in a store, and I got to care for the little fillets.
Excerpt: Date: 12/10/2007 Fish Tycoon is not your typical tycoon game. You're not building a financial fish empire from scratch, managing inventory, or designing a store. Fish Breeder would have been a more appropriate title for this game, as your goal is to discover seven magical breeds of fish that once inhabited the mysterious island of Isola. This is a pretty unusual premise for a game and after spending some time with the game you'll know why.
Summary: Parents need to know that fish die and need to be removed from the tanks. The game teaches kids about genetics and running a fish-breeding business. Kids learn about market forces as they discover that rare fish can command high prices. And they learn to use resources efficiently because they can raise only 20 fish per tank. Kids also learn about pet responsibility.
Summary: Originally created by Last Day of Work, as an online PC game, Fish Tycoon is a fish-breeding simulation game that lets players raise and crossbreed fish in real-time, virtual aquariums to sell in their virtual stores as new breeds.
