    15

    Last 3 minutes without the help of any bubblefish in Time Attack

    The hardest achievement in the game, you cannot use any bubblefish pick-ups and need to last 3 minutes.

    To last for 3 minutes you need to kill nearly every fish and avoid hiting any boomers or toxic barrels as they increase your pollution meter rapidly.

    Note the fish spawn in waves and each wave adds 1 fish, so to begin with let the 1st fish get to the edge of the screen before killing him as this will waste some time before the second wave arrives. 2nd wave has 2 fish, you can kill one fish but wait until the other is at the edge of the screen before killing the 2nd. 3rd wave has 3 fish, you can kill two but wait until the last fish is at the ede of the screen befire killing the 3rd. etc etc etc.

    If you do this correctly you can get to as little as wave 10 by around the 2 minute mark and this is when the boss fish come into play, hitting a boss makes him smaller and knocks him backward so using boss fish as the last fish in a wave is key to wasting more time.

    Using this wave method you can finish the game with as low as 192/208 fish hit.

    This is a massive reduction in the fish you need to hit (270/282) if you kill all the fish as quickly as possible.

    Special thanks to TrishTheDish for the head up on the waves.

  • Last all 3 minutes in Time Attack

    Make use of the bubblefish pick-ups, avoid hitting boomers and toxic barrels and try to kill as many fish as possible.

    Boomers, toxic barrels and letting fish leave the screen all increase your pollution meter.

    If you are struggling even with the help of bubblefish then use the wave method listed in "Loner."

    When you last the full three minutes and this will unlock.

  • Hit 50 fish in a row without missing in Time Attack

    Take you time to make sure each screen tap counts, hit 50 fish in a row to unlock.

  • Survive for 2 minutes in Fish Hunt

    Keep shooting fish, DO NOT SHOOT BOOMERS OR TOXIC BARRELS as they increase your pollution meter.

    Shoot green bubblefish to reduce your pollution meter.

    As long as you do this you should easy last 2 minutes.

  • Get 4x points on two consecutive shots in Fish Hunt

    Wait until you have two fish close to one of your crosshairs and shoot this will give you 4x points, do this again for 8x

    Must be done straight after each other, you can do this on the 1st level if you ignore fish until you get a double double.

  • Reach level 15 in Fish Hook

    You have more bubblefish than required to finish a level and each bubblefish has 4 hit points.

    Look for spaces in the fish before lifing bubblefish to boat.

    Get to level 15 to unlock.

  • Complete 10 levels in a row without losing a bubblefish in Fish Hook

    Starting on level one this should be easy as the it only starts to get hard around level 15+

    Pick up a bubble fish and lift him up to the boat to collect - Bubblefish have 4 hit points so this should not be a problem.

    Look for spaces in the fish before lifing bubblefish up to boat.

    Complete 10 levels without losing a bubblefish to unlock.

    If you do lose a bubblefish immediatly hit the back button and chose retry, this will restart you at the beginning of the current level but will not void the achievement

    Thanks to ThrR4nMyWolfpak for retry method.

  • Get a second fish for the Fish Tank

    You have a fish tank, take care of your fish!

    Tap the screen to feed the fish, wipe your screen to reduce your pollution meter and full screen swipe to kill snails which stop your new fish meter.
