Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Mighty Fin is a fast, engaging game with 8 levels and mild violence. Players tap and release the screen to make a fish dive or jump to avoid obstacles and collect points and costumes. The levels vary somewhat each time they're played, and each level has an endless mode. Learning to play is easy, but mastering the fast tap and release actions may be challenging for younger players. The costumes are caricatures from different cultures, such as a Viking hat, a sombrero, and dreadlocks. Users can share high scores via the Game Center social network, but participation is optional.
Is it any good?
MIGHTY FIN is a fun game with a great graphical interface. You can almost hear Fin gurgling with glee as he leaps into the air. The levels include many different goals, giving you reasons to play several times and try endless mode. Each time you play, the game offers up different patterns and starting points for the levels, so the game has variety. Still, the action can get a little repetitive, and long levels may frustrate younger players. The costumes add a fun twist, although the caricatured nature of the outfits is a bit funky. Navigating the menus also requires some patience.
