Playrix bringing its flagship franchise Fishdom to the social networks

Playrix Entertainment, a top-tier casual games developer and publisher of such hits as Call of Atlantis, 4 Elements, Gardenscapes and others, announced that it is bringing its flagship franchise Fishdom to the social networks. The social adaptation of the game is slated for an early March release coming first to Facebook with MySpace and vkontakte versions next in line.

The social adaptation of Fishdom is an aquarium simulation game where players need to take care of lively tropical fish and develop a beautiful fish tank for their enjoyment. Players get to purchase, feed and play with their finned pets watching them grow. Adding exotic plants and original accessories to the virtual aquarium, players show off their creativity to friends and share the fun experience.

The original Fishdom, a highly acclaimed puzzler from Playrix, was released in June 2008 and has been a best seller since then, building an unprecedented fan base and receiving spectacular user ratings and favorable reviews. The game with conversion rates reaching 14% proved to be #1 hit and one of the top-selling match-3 titles across the boards. It has won numerous critical accolades and “game of the year” awards being called one of the greatest games of 2008 by Casual Games Association, announced among the final nominees for the 2009 Great Game Awards and named one of the Greatest Video Games 2009 by iParenting Media Awards late last year. In 2009 Playrix extended its Fishdom franchise with four new titles in various genres stating its commitment to deliver the game’s unique experience to the widest possible audience.

Fishdom is a good game, but it’s missing a few features to make it great. For starters, it’s lacking in true social play. There’s nothing to stop players from taking a screenshot of their aquarium and posting it to their favorite social networks, of course, and the game also features the facility to Like the game on Facebook, follow the developer on Twitter and send a link via email to friends, but there’s no facility to view friends’ aquariums, for example, and no means of comparing high scores. The game doesn’t even support Game Center, unlike many of Playrix’s other iOS titles, and thus ends up feeling like a somewhat solitary experience. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing for players who are happy to play alone, but it seems like a curious omission given the type of game and Playrix’s previous experience. Perhaps it is something that will be added in a future update.
