Slap That Fish!

This time, those fishy bastards are finally going to get what’s coming to them.

SLAP THAT FISH is a game of — well, exactly as it says. It doesn’t get any weirder than this. To play, download the .gam file here.

You’ll need an interpreter to play the game. I recommend Gargoyle for Windows or Spatterlight for Mac.

Competitions and Awards

SLAP THAT FISH! was entered into the annual IF Comp in 2007 and placed 19th out of 27th. Despite its poor showing, it was subsequently nominated for three XYZZY awards: Best Non-Player Characters, Best Puzzle (Beating the Shark), and Best Use of Medium.

Reviews

“A quirky game” that “deserves a lot of credit for originality and a certain cheerful insanity,” with an experimental system that is “a decent approach to making combat in IF interesting,” but on the other hand “some experiments do not work out very well.” Read detailed reviews on the game’s ifdb page and through links off of the bottom of the game’s ifwiki page.
