Happy Aquarium: Wheel of Fish carries limited edition fish and turtle drama
Happy Aquarium is offering players a chance at some special Limited Edition fish of days past with their newest feature -- Wheel of Fish. Each spin costs 10 Facebook Credits (or $1.00 USD), which is a bargain, though it's disappointing to see that no Pearls option is available.
Below are the current fish available through this offer, along with their first appearances in the game (plus one Green Turtle that's gotten players seeing RED):
- Zemo the Clownfish (April, inspired by Pixar's "Finding Nemo")
- White Beluga (April, from the "Rescue an Animal!" feature)
- Cinco de Mayo Fish (May)
- Cyclops Fish (June)
- Bat Fish (June)
- Giant Sunfish (June)
- Corey the Kissing Fish (July, inspired by Carrie Bradshaw from "Sex and the City")
- Mini Magical Wizard Fish (August)
- Zebra Shark (August)
- Nurse Shark (August)
- Platypus (February)
...and one animal which doesn't appear on the wheel, but has all the players up in arms right about now, is the Green Turtle (January). This used to be a free adoptable animal, but had been discontinued.
Players argue that its prior status as a freebie means that it shouldn't be included in the wheel. Others argue that if you've got a one in twelve chance of getting a dud (in this case, the Turtle), it should be fair enough. My question is why you can't see the turtle when you're looking at the Wheel itself, because that's clearly misleading potential buyers who want to give this thing a try. And really, saying that it's meant to be random just isn't enough of an excuse.
