Miami, Florida., Handango Summit, June 24, 2005–– Fish Tycoon has been honored with the Handango Champion Award for Best Application for Play at the fifth annual Handango Partner Summit . Selected from thousands of nominations, the Handango Champion Winners were chosen by a panel of industry experts and media.
Fish Tycoon sets players on the mysterious island of Isola, where they must breed and nurture exotic tropical fish in their search for the 7 Magic Fish that will restore the ecosystem of Isola back to its former glory. To finance the research necessary to care for the increasingly fragile species of fish, the player must sell their exotic creations in their own store.
Unique among games for mobile devices is the "real-time" nature of breeding and caring for a virtual aquarium full of exotic fish. Unless a player pauses the game, fish will continue to grow and thrive, or become infested and die -depending on how often the player monitors and nurtures the fish in the aquarium.
“We are very delighted to be recognized by Handango for this award. Handango has been a constant supporter of our endeavors and it means a great deal to us, coming from them." said Arthur Humphrey, Last Day of Work chief executive.
