Well that is the official blurb over and done with so onto my thoughts on myFishtank.
If you are anything like me you have probably tried to keep tropical fish at some stage, only to have killed enough of the poor little buggers to make a small dish of sushi.
Well with myFishtank you can have all the joys of owning a tropical fish tank without having to keep a smelly little net next to your TV, while waiting for the next fish to die.
This is a great little application and has a tone of features, one that I particularly like is being able play your music straight from the myFishTank app, I have had it on all morning while I have been twittering, it’s great, no more crappy Xbox visualiser for me.
You can modify almost anything in the tank and there are plenty of fish to choose from. You can even paint your own, there are two WFC finned buddies in my tank already.
You earn rewards for sharing your tanks and fish with friends over Xbox Live , it is only a matter of time until I have that shark in my tank. I hope it doesn’t eat everything.
There are two features missing from myFishtank that are in Aquarium HD. I would have like to have seen – being able to feed your fish and also being able to tap the glass to startle them.
Given the raging debate at the creators club forums about the validity of applications on XBLCG, it is great to see Lighthouse Games produce a quality product that is in my opinion going to out sell many other titles on the service. They have seen a gap in the market and good luck to them
All in all a great app that is well worth the 200 MS points and in my opinion a cut above Aquarium HD.
So myFishtank gets a 5 joysticks award from XboxHornet
