If you thought that keeping fish in a tank was boring, think again.
A game called Alien Fish Exchange, found on T-motion’s WAP portal, has captured the imagination of One 2 One staff, in particular marketing PR manager Neil Bent.
The aim of the game, rather like Tamagotchi, is to keep the electronic fish in your virtual tank alive. On day two, Bent thought he was doing well when the fish he had bought – delicate angel fish, value for money tiddlers, and a few rogues – started breeding like crazy.
But on day three Bent found to his cost that he should have read the fish guide as there were only 12 fish left in the tank and only enough money to buy food.
Day four was worse. The remaining fish had either eaten each other or died. Allergic to fish, Bent reckons that he was jinxed from the start!
