Real-Time Fish Breeding Simulation Offers Exclusive DS-Only Features
Majesco Entertainment Company an innovative provider of video games and digital entertainment products for the mass market, today announced it has shipped Fish Tycoon®. Originally created by Last Day of Work, LLC and published by Big Fish Games™ as an online PC game, Fish Tycoon is an award-winning, fish-breeding simulation game that lets players raise and crossbreed fish in real-time, virtual aquariums to sell in their virtual stores as new breeds.
“Already a tremendous success in the casual games market, Fish Tycoon for the DS takes the best-selling PC title and makes it that much more rewarding for handheld gamers with exclusive DS-only features and an attractive price point,” said Ken Gold, vice president of marketing, Majesco.
“Fish Tycoon feels completely unique on the Nintendo DS,” says Patrick Wylie, vice president of studios at Big Fish Games. “Players enjoy having a portable fish tank where they can not only create fascinating new fish breeds but also manage and grow their own virtual business. Fish Tycoon balances two interactive experiences into one compelling package.”
