More gameplay than Corruption, better game design than Jinxter, and not as quirky as The Pawn. This is definitely MS's best release since Guild of Thieves, even if version 1.0 on the ST is spoilt by some careless programming.

Here is an adventure full of fishy puzzles and puns, (try playing The Prawn, or Gilled of Thieves on the university mainframe...) that is guaranteed to produce shoals of laughter as you scratch your scales trying to fathom its depths.

Fish! is highly unusual, not to say crazy, entertainment. It has many of the characteristics of Rainbird's previous adventures - excellent input analyser, a wealth of humorous text, pop-down options, plenty of colour graphics. But the best parts are the zany plot and the variety of puzzles. Rainbird and Magnetic Scrolls have pulled it off again. Fish! is a highly amusing and entertaining adventure, well up to the standard set, by their earlier products. Laughter is good for the sole so rays a smile and have a whale of a time playing Fish! Sorry, couldn't resist it.

The puzzles in the trio of opening adventures are fairly simple and a good introduction to what is to come. Graphics are of a very high standard and the prose is interesting to read. Supplied complete with facts about the Seven Deadly Fins, how to look after your fish and Warping For Beginners, Fish! is a must... even if it is difficult to write about without including a pun in every line.

Das neue Magnetic Scrolls-Adventure “Fish“ ist auch auf dem Amiga eine wahre Freude. Außer einer (etwas wäßrigen) Titelmusik wurde nichts gegenüber der Atari ST-Version geändert. Die Story ist klasse, der Parser wasserdicht und die Puzzles anspruchsvoll: Für Adventurespieler mit guten Englischkenntnissen und etwas Fantasie unbedingt empfehlenswert.

Bei Fish stimmt einfach alles: eine aberwitzige Geschichte, spritzige Texte, schöne Bilder, Texte und Parser haben dasselbe hohe Niveau wie die anderen Adventures von Magnetic Scrolls. Fast alle englischen Sätze, mögen Sie auch recht kompliziert sein, werden vom Programm verstanden, was die Laune und den Spielspaß hebt. Vor allem getaut mir die Idee der drei Mini-Adventures: Man kann sie unabhängig voneinander lösen und stimmt sich so prima auf den Hauptteil ein.

Although the parser doesn't seem to have advanced much since Guild or Corruption, the overall game structure Is slightly better than both of these. The graphics are up to Magnetic Scroll's usual high standard (although there are a couple of dodgy pictures in there). There are plenty of puzzles to find and overcome, ranging from difficult to (almost) too difficult. That said, Fish! is quite possibly their easiest adventure to date. It's certainly their most enjoyable.

Gameplay-wise, Fish! on the Amiga is identical to it's ST and PC stablemates. Graphically there's hardly any difference at all. and the only enhancements are the addition of speech and some incredibly whacky title screen music including sampled bubbling noises and the occasional cat howl.

Die Bilder sind leider nicht so schön wie bei den Vorgängern, aber immer noch sehenswert. Dafür wird man vom Rest des Adventures geködert: eine spritzige Geschichte, wasserdichter Parser und Puzzles, die härter zu knacken sind als Hummerschalen. Man sollte allerdings gut Englisch verstehen, sonst säuft der Spielspaß ab.

Das ganze Produkt präsentiert sich als gut durchdacht. Texte, über die man herzlich lachen kann, auf der einen Seite, gute Ortsbeschreibungen auf der anderen. Abgerundet wird das Ganze dann von dem sehr guten Parser und hervorragenden Grafiken. Zusammenfassend möchte ich Fish! jedem Adventure Freak ans Herz legen. Es ist eine Anschaffung, die sich lohnt.
