The App Store is home to a number of worthwhile side-scrolling games, and Mighty Fin belongs in the top tier of that category.
In the case of Mighty Fin, you’re a fish bobbing along assorted aquatic settings and capturing valuable bubbles along the way. There are a multitude of levels – the game debuted with eight, and another eight have been added since.
The music is tailored to each setting, and special attention has been paid to the sound effects, from the splash of Fin leaping out of the water to the flopping noise when he meets his unfortunate demise. Mighty Fin’s graphics are also noteworthy, particularly the title screens.
Side-scrolling games can get repetitive, but Mighty Fin varies things by unlocking new game modes whenever you complete a level.
