Bubble Fish Party
Bubble Fish Party is a family party brawler in which four players take control of wacky blowfish and have just one goal: To pierce their opponents by knocking them against spikes around an aquarium arena and collect the points.
The game features two unusual power-ups which can change the course of the game: A bomb that unleashes a powerful push wave, and spikes that grow on the losing player’s fish, eliminating other fish on contact.
Bubble Fish Party makes the most of its wacky feel, fast gameplay, and local multiplayer mechanics: play on one device and enjoy together.

Find Li’l one, Granny and all the family in four fun and colorful mini-games.
BROKEN FAMILY – Caprice and Li’l one need to rearrange the family photos in this sliding block puzzle game. But watch out for Ohoh and her annoying habit of rotating the picture.

Watch out for Bother and Blister, who have snuck into the attic with some firecrackers. If Li’l one hits one, it’s fireworks for sure.
COME GIVE GRANNY A KISS – You can always count on Granny and her good ideas. She’s playing concentration with the family photos, but watch out, because if she turns over Uncle Hurry and Aunt Harriet, it’s game over.

Eat everything in the ocean!
You play as a tiny goldfish with an insatiable appetite. After being overfed by your owner, you escape into the ocean and begin to eat everything that you encounter. The more you eat, the bigger you get!
In addition to the goldfish, you can also play as a hungry dolphin and a ravenous shark. The dolphin starts off as an overworked aquarium star, forced to jump through flaming hoops for food. He escapes from captivity by eating his way through the aquarium and taking revenge on his trainer. The shark is the final playable character, an artificial fish created by scientists to save Earth’s oceans. It uses self-replicating nano technology to consume everything in its path and convert their matter into its own. There’s no telling how big this shark will get.
