LDW Software is proud to announce the release of Fish Tycoon 1.0, a true real-time fish breeding game for Palm OS, Tapwave Zodiac, and Sony Clie devices. Fish Tycoon is the follow-up to their award winning plant breeding sim, and features beautiful hi-resolution fish that grow, breed, and eat both while the device is turned on--and when it's off!

Fish Tycoon is set on the exotic island of Isola. The player starts with a small selection of fish, some money and a tank. He must breed the fish, help them grow and cure them if they get sick. Along the way the player can purchase upgrades, research technologies, and invest in advertising. He will finance all of this by selling exotic hybrids in his fish shop until he discovers the 7 Magic Fish that will help restore the island to its former glory.

Fish Tycoon features 3 beautiful hi-resolution fish tanks, 421 exotic breeds to discover, a fantasy storyline, and a genetic puzzle to solve. The game runs in real-time so that when the Palm device is turned back on hours later, small fish will have grown larger and the world remains persistent. Having surprises waiting when reentering the game has proven to be extremely addictive to players. Additionally, the game can be paused and turned into a screensaver, displaying the fish that are currently in each tank.

Fish Tycoon offers the player relaxing, non-violent gameplay in a truly unique real-time framework. It creates the sensation of having a real aquarium in your handheld computer.
