And twenty bucks is easily removed from my fingers.
Played on-line for a day and decided I wanted to give my full attention and get a nice aquarium going with expensive fish. Still have not gotten any expensive fish to sell.
What I’ve learned so far:
If you don’t have a lot of cash, trash the sick fish.
No matter what the tutorial says, don’t buy medicine. Buy tank improvements!
If you breed dissimilar fish, the offspring often die.
So, has anybody gotten any magical fish? Expensive fish? What do I need to do?
I thought this was going to be a rant about the proliferation of dumb tycoon games. Fish Tycoon, Casino Tycoon, Zoo Tycoon, Pizza Tycoon, even plain old “lemonade stand” for the C64 was turned into “Lemonade Tycoon.”
I played it for a while. I found almost all of the magical fish–eventually. Breed your fish.
Sell the offspring. Buying the more expensive fish eggs was dissappointing–it didnt seem like my new fish were as exotic as I expected them to be. But if you keep your fish alive, and keep breeding new fish and selling them, you do eventually get interesting and expensive fish.
And then you go away from your computer for a week–or at least forget about your fish, and they all die and you are too depressed to start over.
Well, that’s what happened to me–it doesn’t have to happen to you.
If you pay for it, you get to keep playing for a long time. It isn’t a quick game. It’s the kind of game which rewards you for playing it 15 minutes a day, every day for a month or so. The fish grow up in real time. I’m pretty sure that there is a setting which allows you to not lose your fish if you go away from your computer for a week or two, but I didn’t use that setting.
