Guide a glowing fish around obstacles in the deep darkness of the water
It's just occurred to me that Last Fish is about one final specimen fighting for survival in the midst of heavily polluted waters. This idea is significantly sadder than playing the game itself is. Tilt to swim around the shadowy obstacles - you'll illuminate them as you draw near, but brush too close and you'll damage your health. Objectives vary from level to level - collect a certain number of rings, reach an amaount of health, clear checkpoints, or simply survive for a specified period of time. 45 levels will keep you swimming for a good long while.
No doubt: Last Fish is beautiful, a dark little haiku of an app.

"Last Fish felt poetic in some ways." - DIYGamer
"Last Fish is a satisfying swim through a world of light and shadows." - Kotaku

Tilt the device to control the fish. Eat food to gain health. Avoid touching goo as it decreses health. Complete the objectives but beware of the shadowfish.
New control options include 3 different setups for tilting the device and support for Sphero - an awesome ball robot you can use to control the fish.
In each level you have to complete one of four objectives: survive for a specified amount of time; quickly follow a trail of rings; clear checkpoints; eat food with caution to reach a specific amount of health. Every level is different, be it food quantity, goo quantity, speed, size, movement patterns, health lost rate, number and speed of shadowfish. All these combined make each level unique.
Survive as long as possible. Arcade starts with lots of food and some goo, but over time the food gets more rare and more goo appears. The fish also loses more health as time passes. Then appears the shadowfish. Survive, until the inevitable end...
Better options and interface.
But it's relaxing and functions wonderfully.
...that this little masterpiece doesn't have the equivalent amount of downloads.
I love this game. If more of these other useless games were of this caliber, I would spend a lot more money on games.
Laid back game, until the other fish chase you! Fun game none the less.
Its hard and easy at the same time. It allows my mind time to "swim"
Very addictive :3
