Feeding Frenzy + Good Physics + Babies = Big Fish.
I finally completed the game and here's the tips you need so you can too!
1. Get used to the controls.
2. Get used to the bouyancy.
3. The bigger you are the more bouyant you are.
4. You have no mouth. But you can absorb fish into your stomach anyway.
5. Don't eat your babies.
6. If you believe eating babies is immoral don't play the game.
7. If you're stuck check Nchyn.
Level 1: Eat all the other fish fish within 60 seconds.
Help: Easy, Simply chase after the fish, you have plenty of time.
Level 2: Be the only big fish in the pool.
Help: Also easy, just make sure to eat the fish fast enough so they don't become big enough to eat you.
Level 3: Protect your babies for 20 seconds.
Help: At first, this level was a nightmare for me, then I realized there's a knack to it. Simply herd your babies into the bottom left corner. Get as close as you can without actually touching them so if any fish are foolish enough to attack you consume them. Just make sure to keep tapping down to compensate for the bouyancy.
Level 4: Survive for 20 seconds.
Help: Difficult at first but his level also has a knack to it. If you stay down at the very bottom under the peg, the fish will have to move sideways to get you but he'll move in wide obvious arcs so just avoid those and stay at the bottom under the peg.
Level 5: Grow to be this big.
Help: Even easier then the first level. Just keep eating there's no time limit and eventually you'll get so big you'll practically fill the water preventing fish from escaping. Just make sure to take into account your natural bouyancy.
Level 6: Protect your babies for 20 seconds.
Help: Medium I'd say. The trick here is to constantly move across the screen over your babies hold left to be exact. Only one or two fish will try to get through and after you eat them promptly continue moving straight across the screen so no fish will attack.
Level 7: Grow to be this big.
Help: I think these levels were definitely not ranked by difficulty because this is easier than Level 4. Just hold down and right (or down and left whatever you prefer) and you'll speed across the screen eating all the fish that fall. As you get bigger you get more bouyant but as long as you don't let go of the keys the pegs will keep your fish underwater. When the big fish above finally falls eat him and win.
Level 8: Survive for 30 seconds.
Help: Annoying at first but easy when you think about it. The fish's attack pattern is always the same. Wait for a few seconds and then charge at you. All you have to do is nudge yourself slightly so as to sidestep is attack and then he'll stop for a moment and charge again. Repeat.
Level 9: Be the only big fish in the pool.
Help: The first real challenge in my opinion. The hardest part is getting the first fish, it usually spawns under the pegs so ideally you'll catch it, eat the other fish and win. Realistically, it usually spawns away so you either need friggin super luck or you need to avoid the other big fish until another small fish spawns and you eat that one.
Level 10: Protect your babies for 30 seconds.
Help: Very difficult. My strategy though is to eat as many fish at the bottom as you can without becoming buoyant enough to lose too much control. Then rush back to defend your babies. Occasionally a small fish will get through, don't worry about them too much. What you need to worry about are the big fish that grow at the bottom. Unless you're bigger they'll rush at you and eat you. (Jeez why can't we just leave each other's babies alone??)
Level 11: Eat all the fish in 30 seconds.
Help: In the beginning try herding as many fish as you can together so you can eat them in one clump. Then the tricky part is eating the few remaining fish. To do that speed across the bottom like level 7 until the other fish is going real fast. Then stop and the other fish's momentum will carry it right to your jaws. Or mouth. Or whatever you use to eat the other fish.
Level 12 : Survive for 20 seconds.
Help: HARDEST LEVEL in the game. It took me many tries but I think I've found a winning strategy (or atleast a semi-good strategy). Don't eat ANY fish at the beginning. Let one or two big fish emerge. Then avoid them. Harder then it sounds but trust me if you apply the strategy for Level 8 and tweak it a little it will work. Hopefully.
Alternate Strategy: If you're quick with your fingers you can try to become the biggest fish. If you chose to do this you need to eat all the other fish FAST at the beginning. Then eat the other fish until the end. This all relies on getting a good opening but if you can accomplish that this strategy is easier than the first one.
Anyway, I hope this helped. At all. Good luck!
