Mobile games always offer a fine respite from the travails of daily life. They can offer entertainment, relaxation and really take your mind off your worldly problems. Soothing games which have easy on the eye graphics and a simplistic yet challenging gameplay are often the best if you are looking for such gaming options. Zen Koi is a fish game which fits the bill in this regard with its soothing graphics and engaging gameplay offering a really solid gaming experience.
Koi is a beautiful fish that is normally present in pools and is very easy on the eye. Zen Koi has been developed keeping the mythology surrounding the Koi fish in mind. The gameplay is simple enough to process. You need to consume a number of animated fish in order to improve your Koi's speed and reflexes. You also need to mate in order to produce offspring to further enhance the game. Moreover, you need to keep expanding the pond following the mythical formula provided the game. The game's finale leads to the ascension of the Koi into its true mythological form of a dragon.
The game's graphics are soothing and extremely easy on the eye. The fish game's main appeal lies in its beautiful and smooth graphics which really ensure that you get totally lost in the game. You are bound to lose track of time in the beautiful gliding movement of your Koi as well as your Koi mates and other little fish food as well. The background music further adds to the gameplay and ensures that the enchantment doesn't get lifted at any time.
The fish game starts off with a very simple task of consuming a certain amount of small fish food. The controls offer you the chance to let the Koi choose a selected little fish food item and chase it or to simply keep guiding your Koi throughout by tapping on your screen. A mix and match approach with the controls normally works the best as you keep chasing a certain animated fish and if another fish comes close by, you can direct your Koi in its direction to consume further food and gain points as well as gain another item required for fulfilling the needs of the formula which will expand the pond and let you find more little fish to eat. The mating part of the game isn't explained but the animation is simple enough that you would get the idea straight away. Whenever a mate comes in close vicinity, a circle starts appearing around your Koi. You need to ensure that your Koi follows the mate closely and when you would do that, a guiding light would start engulfing the circle. Once the light engulfs the entire circle, you would have an offspring. You can hatch the egg to ensure that the offspring becomes part of the pond as well. There are different types of Koi mates available in the game with each offering a rare offspring for you to create and then hatch.
There are levels in the game and you can rise up the levels by consuming as many little fish as possible. After certain levels, you can increase the speed and agility of the Koi which helps in both, mating and in catching difficult prey.
