Ugly Hungry Fish Offers Addicting Gameplay, but Needs Visual Improvements

Ugly Hungry Fish is a new game by SixFellows that’s incredibly simple and straightforward to play. If you’re looking for a good time waster, this is certainly worth checking out.

One of the first things I noticed about Ugly Hungry Fish was that the interface looked incredibly fuzzy and blurred on my iPhone 6S Plus. This was a bit disappointing, mainly because it makes the game look shoddy.

The menu is pretty well designed, though, and you have easy access to everything Ugly Hungry Fish offers without having to go very far. The separate menu for instructions on how to play the game is a little redundant seeing as it pops up every time you start a new game.

When it comes to actual gameplay, unfortunately the experience is the same in terms of fuzzy graphics on my iPhone 6S Plus. The game looked alright on my iPad 4.

I definitely feel like Ugly Hungry Fish could be a much better game if a bit more time was spent on improving graphics for larger iPhones. It looks like reviews left by other players second this opinion, so hopefully the developers will make improvements in an upcoming update.

I do like the fact that game mechanics are incredibly simple; tap and hold your finger on the screen and drag to avoid the fish that pop up on the screen. If you get hit by a fish or release your finger from the screen, the game is over. Your high score is determined by how long you survive.

If you’re a fan of Game Center, you’ll be pleased to know that Ugly Hungry Fish features complete integration and leaderboards. This is a great feature and definitely encourages players to keep working their way up the global ranks.

Ugly Hungry Fish is free, but there are ads that pop up after each game. The ads aren’t animated or anything, so they’re not really an annoyance. I couldn’t find a way to disable them, but I don’t think it’s necessary to do so.

Overall, Ugly Hungry Fish would be a great time waster for iOS if it featured decent graphics for bigger phones. If you can stand potentially fuzzy gameplay, it’s an amusing game.

Ugly Hungry Fish requires iOS 7.1 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

A small administrative fee was paid by the developer for publication of this review, which did not influence the reviewer’s opinion
