Fishtropolis is a word game. You log in to the game (you can have five game slots in total, so if others in your household want to play, they can have their own account) and you’re then presented with a grid of letters, above which is a fish tank. The tank contains the fish corresponding to the particular level you’re on. They swim around as you match words – and that’s about it.

Other developers such as NimbleBit are already well prepared with more than a few of these games under their umbrella, Moon Drop being one.
1984 was a big year for the world, a BIG year. Steve Jobs’ pet project, the Macintosh was launched despite all that Big Brother could do; Great Britain agreed to return Hong Kong to China; the AIDS virus was isolated by French scientists; and Ronald Reagan, President of the United States, declared July National Ice Cream Month – a holiday that I am happily celebrating half the world away. As part of Ice Cream Month, the third Sunday of this balmy month is a special day marked by near religious observances of one of America’s favourite foods. Nutritious according to the International Dairy Foods Association, ice cream as a food, props up nearly 9% of the American Dairy industry.
