Fish and Spell

Gone fishin’ Free

Mac|Life - - HOME LIFE - J.R. Book­wal­ter

This col­or­ful ed­u­ca­tional fish­ing ad­ven­ture takes place in the fic­tional Min­goville Lake Dis­trict, where Fish­er­man Fred is your guide through a va­ri­ety of “lakes,” each in a dif­fer­ent cat­e­gory, such as an­i­mals, fam­ily, clothes, or food.

Only the first cat­e­gory is un­locked in the free ver­sion – you’ll have to pony up $0.99 for a “fish­ing li­cense” to each ad­di­tional lake, or pay $2.99 to get them all. The ob­jec­tive is to sit in a boat and fish for the let­ters re­quired to spell each word as they swim by. There are more than 500 words in to­tal, and ev­ery­thing has been de­signed for a child’s short at­ten­tion span.

The graph­ics are fun and quite good, with plenty of eye-catch­ing color, an­i­ma­tion, music, and voice ac­tors along the way. Fish and Spell’s game­play also helps im­prove hand-eye co­or­di­na­tion and re­flexes. Each level of­fers easy, medium, and hard op­tions, so kids aged 5+ will have plenty of chal­lenges.

If only real fish­ing was this lu­cra­tive. Still, at least your child will be learn­ing to spell while you count the coins.
