Advice and Tips

Our default control scheme is the most accessible one. Should you find yourself not able to control the fish you might have activated the “Bossa Style” control scheme accidentally (which is controller exclusive). It’s way more challenging to control the fish with it. We’d recommend the default scheme for your first playthrough.

If you should ever be stuck in a level you can always skip checkpoints. This will affect your final scoring but allow you to proceed should a puzzle be too challenging.

After you have played through all Goldfish levels you will be able to play all the other fish. You don’t have to play them sequentially. You’re free to explore them however you want!

Not all breadcrumbs can be collected in one go. Multiple paths lead back to the ocean. Feel free to explore the levels and try out different routes. The most straightforward route is not always the easiest!

R on keyboard or Y/Δ on controller lets you immediately respawn at your last checkpoint. Keep in mind that every respawn counts towards your score!

Should you get really stuck on a level, but don’t wish to checkpoint skip please feel free to refer to the following walkthrough videos showing you a single route through each level.

    Manually restart the level if you respawn in Iron Fish mode and if you’re trying to get a perfect Star rating.

    Don’t quit the tutorial or navigate back from the Controls selection screen.
