A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

FISH is a match-3 puzzle game, with a fishy twist. Click and drag to match 3 blocks together, and instead of being removed from the board, they are frozen in place! Use frozen blocks to freeze other similar blocks, and be careful not to freeze yourself into a corner. It's gameplay fresher than these aromatic fish heads, 3 for £1!

As the factory's new Line Manager, it's your job to freeze produce ready for transit. Once you have frozen a whole row, the frozen fish will be shipped out by our delivery driver.

Be careful not to make any wrong moves! Take your time, consider your moves carefully.


- There is no Game Over screen. If there are no more moves available, the fish are just going to sit there getting smellier and smellier...Use the Restart button or press R to start a new game.

- It is not mentioned in the tutorial, but to move a tile, you need to drag the tiles, not just click them. (I always forget to include the most important information in the tutorial..)

I am using MX-15 Debian Jessie 32 bit. What can I do with the file Fish.love?

nice logo

You should add the open source and/or sourcecode tag!

High score saving, please! It's really fun and I'd love to be able to see how I get better over time!

Agreed. I need that too

Just wanted to say I had a lot fun playing Fish. I'd echo what KeronCyst said awhile ago. This would make a great mobile game, I'd love to be able to easily play this on the go.


I just now discovered this game and it's great!! It'd be perfect on mobile; is there any chance of an Android port? I'd love to vie for a high score on there if there was a saving/loading feature to carry on across multiple sessions of playing.

Thanks. It's really nice to hear that you enjoy the game :)

We've considered making a mobile version but that would require quite a significant re-work of the project so at this momen there is nothing planned.


I would encourage that as seriously the best way to go. I think you could make real money off of this if you made online high scores and a free version with ads and an ad-free paid version, with a lengthy Two Dots-style campaign and different rules for different maps (like vertical connections instead of horizontal, different themes like: machine parts to build a vehicle instead of frozen food to ship off, etc.).

No comments so far? Strange, because this game is very fun. It needs a high-score saver and more levels, and maybe different attributes for different stages - for instance, Level 2 could be called "Prawns" and requires a diagonal.
