Tasty Blue is a game about eating. You're a fish and you need to stuff your face. To start off with you're snaffling little lumps of fish food. Then you jump down a pipe and start to grow.

Fish food is replaced with shrimps, then fish, then killer whales. Soon you're munching on canoeists, scuba divers, and spurn whales.

But you keep getting bigger. So you need to eat helicopters, light houses, jumbo jets, and ocean liners. It's simple, ridiculous fun that'll have you laughing out loud.

Surf and turf

You control your hungry little goldfish with a single finger. You can tap to move, or keep your finger pressed down so the fish follows the trail you're drawing.

And then you eat. The first time you play the levels swell as your gut does. From fish bowl to rock pool to the mighty ocean. The basic premise remains the same throughout though. Find stuff smaller than you and cram it in your gob.

As you play you'll confront other predators. Killer Whales will nip at you when you're smaller than them, but once you've grown you'll munch them down in schools.

Attack helicopters and nuclear submarines fire rockets and missiles at you. You need to weave through the fire and then eat culprits. Because eating is what you're best at.

An IAP bags you a whole bunch of levels that task you with getting to a certain weight. The quicker you get there, the better your score.

There's a huge variety of things to eat, and there's a simple joy to stuffing your face and watching your fish get bigger and bigger.

Eat it

Turning the tables on enemies that have been ganging up on you is an especially pleasant feeling. There's even a split-screen multiplayer mode that lets you work through the levels with a friend.

Tasty Blue is fun, pure and simple. There's a childish glee to the game that's pretty much irresistible. Sure it's shallow and been done before, but that doesn't change how entertaining it is.

This is a neat slosh of arcade gaming that takes real pride in cramming in as much enjoyment down your throat as it can.

A frantic and ridiculous arcade blast, Tasty Blue might not fill you up, but it's a decent meal all the same
