Fisu - Eat or get eaten

This minigame has a simple concept: eat fish, grow bigger and eat bigger fish. Obviously with online highscores.

Control the red fish with mouse. Press the left mouse button to eat. You can eat plankton, algea, and most of the fish that are smaller than you. Grow bigger to be able to eat bigger fishes. Avoid predators of the deep water. Eat algae to gain more energy.

Your final score is the gained additional weight multiplied by seconds of survival. It's possible to grow even as heavy as a blue whale weighing over 100 tonnes, and survive up to 10 minutes. The growth is progressive, meaning that at later stages every eaten fish provides much more growth than in the beginning.

UPDATE: Scoring system improved, it's now a bit more difficult to grow in the beginning, but you have better chances to live longer. Dl-link has been updated.

UPDATE2: Scores back online, one bug fixed.

this is nice but sometimes seems unfairly random

Sounds like Deal Or No Deal - in name.

Identical nearly

Wow, this game is pretty fun!

My main complaint is that the giant sharks appear basically on top of me, so I get chewed on no matter what I do, that and once or twice I was 35 kg (or so), and I ran into a pirranha that was smaller than I was in the beginning!
I find it somewhat annoying that I can't eat something that's smaller than my eye...

Overall though, good game, keep it up!

funny game
Posted by Paul_James 11th April, 2007

i got 4th place so far!
Posted by MJK 11th April, 2007

Thanks for the feedback.

Fragasnap, yeah, these waters are really cruel. Crazy piranhas eat you no matter how small they are and you can't eat them because they are...uhmm..poisoned!

Puts me in mind of Evolution on the Snes - well done that man!

"Crazy piranhas eat you no matter how small they are and you can't eat them because they are...uhmm..poisoned!"

Then doesn't your game title lie?
Posted by MJK 11th April, 2007

Peblo, no it doesn't actually. Because you still must eat algae to gain energy. So when a crazy piranha attacks you, you lose energy. You must eat algae to get it back. If you don't eat -> you will die when those other fish eat you. So, it's "eat or get eaten."

Any other fish but piranhas can be eaten normally.

That's impressive Sniper. Your fish weighed 65.5 tonnes at the end.

PaulJames remained the no.1 of the old version, let's see who can reach the highscores in this new version.

looks amusing!

nice idea too!
Posted by Paul_James 12th April, 2007

oh man now i have another 5 hours wasted trying to get highest score again
thanks MJK for making me fail out of college!
Posted by MJK 12th April, 2007

No problem We have made people to lose their jobs and wifes with Abstractica 2 & 3, so this is a good addition to that.
Posted by Ricky 12th April, 2007

Looks like one of my favorite Intellivision games "SHARK SHARK" In it you would die if you touched a fish bigger than you (it eats you), but you could eat the fish smaller than you. As you ate, you grew in size and were therefore able to eat bigger fish which were worth more points. You could also bite a sharks tale so to get more points, but the head would eat you.

Anyway, looks cool, is less than one mb, so i'm going to download it when i get home
Posted by DaVince 13th April, 2007

Nice game. The enemies appear a bit sudden, though... And if the sprite gets bigger it could go with a higher resolution sprite.
Posted by MJK 13th April, 2007

Thanks. I would draw better sprites if I could but God hasn't been kind to me in that matter.

Currently in the *amazing* lead: Michi with 7923438 points (weight 11.2 tonnes at the end), in second place: Magikarp with 7340496 points, and in third: Hotso with 6749622 points. It already takes some practice to reach these figures!

downloaded. I like this games, along with the above, its cool that you made music with that bubble sound

Posted by markno2 14th April, 2007

I like this game. Maybe the next version should feature an "auto-eat" since it's a bit tough having to hold a mouse click for a few minutes straight

Thumbs Up!!!
Posted by s-m-r 14th April, 2007 took my idea of remaking Shark Shark.

Posted by alex37 14th April, 2007

Awesome game, but yeah, predators just spawn on top of you, so going down to get algae usually results in even more damamge. And doesn't algae need sunlight?
Posted by MJK 14th April, 2007

Thanks, guys.

Markno2, auto-eat is a good suggestion. I may add it later.

LIJI, that is one hell of an piranha-crowd wonder you didn't survive from it.
Posted by Jason Orme 15th April, 2007

Same as Feeding Frenzy
Posted by MJK 15th April, 2007

Fisu is just like thousand times more beautiful, right?
Posted by Paul_James 16th April, 2007

ive recently hit a depth of 200 meters
Posted by DaVince 17th April, 2007

lol, I wouldn't ever buy a simple and fun game like this one. Fisu > Feeding Frenzy.
Posted by Jebin Zedalu 18th April, 2007

Very fun in all but the spawning. It gets quite frustrating to be swimming around, eating little blue fish and minding your own business, and all of a sudden have a damn pirahna 900 times your size come out of nowhere and bite your face off.
Posted by MJK 18th April, 2007

Hehe Life is tough isn't it! You are most safe when your speed is up to maximum, but then again, it can be perhaps more difficult to eat with hi-speed... at least you shouldn't stand still for long, because predators smell you.
Posted by Whippers With 19th April, 2007

No wonder I'm the only red fish around! All other fish, except the retarded blue ones, seems to be on a red-fish-only-diet!
Posted by BJ Turner 22nd April, 2007

Crap!! I just made like 6th or something. But I didn't put my name in. It says Fisu. I made 8 million something. Good Game!!
Posted by MasterM 23rd April, 2007

I was BIGGER than the green fish YET he was able to EAT ME while I was going to eat him. I think thats not fair.

i also think the BIG GREEN FISH is unfair since he will appear out of nowhere and then there is pretty much nothing you can do. it also annoys me when you die you can either submit your score or press ESC and start the game again. there should be 2 buttons: submit score / dont submit. so if you press dont submit you can keep on playing. going back to the main screen and then starting the game again is just annoying
Posted by Moonyjacob 23rd April, 2007

This game is cool. evan though i got the worst score ever it's funny how you don't realize your getting bigger! i went down really deep at the start and there was GINURMUS FISH!!. must be very dangerous to be a fish i'm glad i'm not one
Posted by MJK 23rd April, 2007

Thanks for the suggestions MasterM. The thing with the crazy piranhas is that you can't eat none of them. It's not fair, but it keeps the ecosystem in balance!

Moonyjacob, yeah, it's really wild life that the fish are having. This realistic fish-simulator gives you a chance to see how everything really happens!

By the way, current hi-score is 12997494 by Michi, incredible!
Posted by MJK 14th July, 2007

The game was updated to v1.0. A new database was opened up for the scores and one bug was removed from the game.
