Jett Tailfin, released on WiiU and 3DS, is a three-dimensional racing game for the youngest players, in which we play marine fish. The title was produced by Hoplite Research and Ilusis Interactive Graphics. These developers have several family-oriented titles created for Nintendo platforms and mobile phones and tablets equipped with Android and iOS operating systems. Jett Tailfin was the first company project that was released simultaneously on the WiiU and 3DS consoles.
The game rules don't differ from what we are accustomed to in other racing titles, except that standard go-karts or cars are replaced by fast fish. The fish we choose at the beginning of the game represent many real ocean species and differ in maximum speed or maneuverability. The tracks are placed in fantastical locations such as Atlantis, a ships' graveyard or a pirate island. Each of them contains several routes and shortcuts leading to the finish line, and finding them is the key to victory. Various living obstacles, such as sharks or jellyfish, also stand in the way of the competitors. If we don't avoid them, they will effectively thwart our plans, pushing us from the first to the last position. Interestingly, during the race, we can catch some of these dangerous animals and use them later against our opponents, thwarting their chances of winning.
It's worth mentioning that the title allows you to play in an online mode designed for up to 8 people.
The graphics design is clearly modeled on Disney's Where is Nemo?. Thanks to that, the game is extremely colorful and should appeal both to the youngest and a bit older amateurs of virtual entertainment.
