    Zen Koi's review

    Published: 2017-02-13, by .

    Catch fish to eat, swim around, and breed other fish to get a dragon

    • Serene soundtrack
    • Smooth-running polished cartoony graphics
    • Incredibly easy to pick-up and play
    • Large on-screen buttons
    • No tutorial at all
    • Unclear and confusing gameplay
    • A lot of grinding

    "Time to breed fish"


    Designed as a relaxing and tranquil aquatic journey, Zen Koi for the Android and iOS will have you guiding a unique Koi fish. You’ll tap on the screen to move around your Koi and also tap on prey to catch them. Catching certain prey will allow you to craft them into gems, which you’ll need to level up your Koi. Once your Koi levels up, you can assign ability points. The ultimate goal is to mature your Koi and breed, breed, breed to guide your Koi’s ascension to a dragon.


    When you first start Zen Koi, you’re greeted with a serene soundtrack that will almost instantly make you feel relaxed, and I was surprised by how well the game runs as well as the good-looking cartoony graphics, and also features easy to pick-up controls, large buttons, and relaxing gameplay.


    Want something to take away the mellow feeling? Well, for starters, don’t expect to find any tutorial here, forcing you to figure out how the game actually works, with only a few objectives and core gameplay elements explained right from the start as well as the slow tedious pearl grind.

    I used to love the game but it takes to long to level up a fish. By the time you have it's stats at max your turning into a dragon. They don't move very quickly not even at max. And I'm not finding very many helpful items anymore. Maybe if I'm lucky I might find one boost per hour. Makes it hard to collect all of the koi when your spending hours on just one. Especially when there is no variation from one level to the next. Gets kind of boring. Sorry :((

    I've been playing this game for over 1 year now and I am so in love with it! I love how relaxing the music is and how easy the controls are. I love working towards completing each collection of designs. I just started the sequel and I love that game as much as this one. I kinda wish we could carry over koi from this game to the sequel for even more breeding of collections for rewards.
