A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Fish Heroes wasn't created with educational intent, and we don't recommend it for learning.
Ease of Play
Players familiar with the Angry Birds-style gameplay of shooting objects at enemy fortresses will have no trouble. Players new to the genre will pick it up quickly.
Violence & Scariness
Players fire blocky fish at walls of wood, glass, and concrete to take out enemy sharks.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Fish Heroes is a pretty blatant clone of Angry Birds. The game has a threadbare story about fish trying to take out a group of sharks by firing themselves at structures and knocking their opponents to the ground. Players can post their scores to Twitter and Facebook and can share high scores via the Game Center social network, but participation is optional.
Is It Any Good?
Fish Heroes makes no bones about its inspiration. The game is about as blatant a clone of Angry Birds as you can get. Unfortunately, it's not as fun. From the admittedly distinctive art style to the game's sound, the charm of the original game is lost in this adaptation.
There are some good ideas, though. Rather than focusing on trajectory, the game lets you aim precisely (though that's not as easy it sounds). And it's nice being able to rotate the screen. Unfortunately, the physics aren't precise and even with a wide range of attack fish, the game gets old quickly.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
