I have decided to write this two-part article as a part protest and part laugh, so sit back, relax and enjoy!
This is a scene that every tertiary student is intimately familiar with… You’re sitting in seats that you could swear were designed by sadistic old men, hell bent on your discomfort. Staring blankly at a lecturer, who is rambling on about something you couldn’t care less about, not because the topic sucks exactly, but because they use words like um & anyway as if they were vowels and it makes your head hurt.

Fin needs a vacation. He’s signed up for Shady Sal’s suspiciously cheap — and possibly deadly — Round the World Tour. Hey, money’s tight when you’re a working fish.
Mighty Fin is an addictive arcade game that’s easy to pick up, hard to master… and impossible to put down. The controls are simple: touch the screen to dive and let go to soar through the air.

★ Guide Fin through golden isles, arctic ice caves, and vicious storms
★ Replayable levels that are never the same twice
★ Beautiful Retina Display artwork
★ Collect over two dozen souvenir costumes, from sombreros to bunny ears
★ Compete for gold medals and Game Center high scores
