The Fish are HUNGRY!     They follow your mouse (or finger) to eat the dots.      Then they get bigger.     Eating a whole group of other fish lets them lay eggs.

Controls:

-- Fish move towards your Mouse/Touch

--Left Click or Tap = Dash

--Escape Key = Pause

I found it ran slowly on my phone and the tap controls aren't very responsive. I struggled to dash a lot more when my school got massive and the game appeared to lag quite a bit. My fish struggled to level and I could see pathways that bigger schools of fish made in the food. 

Some schools seemed to be small enough for me to take out but would half my numbers. Trying to get the smallest fish to level gets harder as the school gets bigger. Also my fully leveled fish are so slow and often fall behind at the back, leveling my littler guys exposed like cannon fodder. 

I love the concept and would love more artwork to look at. Cute little animations for leveling would be good at some point and maybe seeing the numbers of your school would be useful. 

I can't wait to see what you do with these little fishy squishies. 

Thank you for the detailed feedback, it's really helpful! For the next version i'm  changing quite a lot that should address most of the problems you had and make the game more fun! Better art might be a while away because it's just two of us and neither are artists, haha. ;)

Nice little game, feels good to grow your pack, become laggy when you reach big sizes. I had some fishes that doesn't upgrade properly, then skipped a tier. I had some that weren't able reach reach max tier.

Thanks for telling me. hopefully the lag and the fish leveling properly will be fixed for the next version!

this is actually really well made! The only thing i recommend is more veriety and maybe a map select, plus a sandy bottom of the map with crabs and stuff.

Hi! Thanks for the offer, but I've already got someone doing art for me. I'd still love to see your shark if you want to share it on my discord server in the #fan_creations chat, that would be awesome! https://discord.gg/yKaknQ

Well Im not sure how it stacks up but I can usually get to about 1240pts before there are so many enemies spawning that I lag out so bad that my fish stop following my mouse and just kinda go where they want. Im  not sure what would cause it, but honestly I love the game so far, Im just glad its not multiplayer with a leaderboard like some of the other .io games LOL

*edit* 

Im playing on PC by the way

There is a problem when I play on my phone where if I reposition my finger I can’t control the fish anymore and the lag when you get a big school of fish is crazy

I only have two problems, I'm playing on the phone, everything button-wise is fine, but over time the game gets SUPER slow. And I'm sure your already working on music but that would be awesome!


PS. Will we be able to download the game at some point for phones?

(+2)

Yea after a while there are LOTS of fish and it slows the game down. I'll have to work on that. The music might take a while but it's definitely coming!

I am lagging with 5 fish on the screen (Im on android) :c

Ps: How can you even pause on a android or on phone or on ...?

Can you make powerups? Like a shield or a speed boost, And maybe a boss (giant fish) that will spawn some time into the game. More fish would be cool but you're already adding that. Maybe like a pufferfish that becomes large when its attacked, and a shark as the boss? You should maybe add sand on the bottom or somethin and if you go deep enough you will find special fish? I know i am asking much but i hope you will add some of my suggestions, Bye Great game btw!
