Last Fish is an arcade survival game that’s divided into multiple levels (135 levels at the time of writing this article). You control a fish using the Android tilting sensors – tilting it one way moves left, tilting it the other way moves right, etc. – and you narrowly avoid obstacles while trying to reach your goal. Goals can range from simple survival to ring collection to whatever else the game throws at you. This game is both beautiful and strangely relaxing. The monochromatic visuals not only make it easy to see which gameplay elements are good or bad, but there’s a soft tranquility to it all. It helps that the music and sound design are perfect as well. If you don’t like games that utilize the Android tilting sensors, you may want to skip over this one, but it’s definitely worth the price.

Control the fish by tilting the phone/tablet. Alternatively you can also use a controller or a Sphero.
Eat food to gain health. Avoid touching goo as it decreses health. Complete the objectives but beware of the shadowfish.
In each level you have to complete one of four objectives: survive for a specified amount of time; quickly follow a trail of rings; clear checkpoints; eat food with caution to reach a specific amount of health. Every level is different, be it food quantity, goo quantity, speed, size, movement patterns, health lost rate, number and speed of shadowfish. All these combined make each level unique.
Survive as long as possible. Arcade starts with lots of food and some goo, but over time the food gets more rare and more goo appears. The fish also loses more health as time passes. Then appears the shadowfish. Survive, until the inevitable end...
