Fishao or Fish Always Online is a fishing themed social browser MMO that is developed and published by GamoVation. Players have 2 options: to register and play on the official website or access Fishao as a Facebook app. The open world is divided into several areas. One nice feature is that if you mouse over a specific area you can check how many players are here. This is helpful when you want to find some people for fishing tournaments or friendly contents. Fishao is also a social game so there are always friendly players looking for a casual chat or relaxing in game activities. Lots of NPCs can be found all over the world. They task players with dailies and are always willing to share some of their fishing knowledge.
Some game areas are level locked or only available to players that meet certain conditions. Fishao free players aren’t restricted to a certain level so anyone can advance and get to visit the entire world. There are 3 starting zones for new players. Each zone has a specific theme and landscape. The tutorial is not mandatory. You have the option to skip it but it’s recommended listening to what Tuto (guiding NPC) has to say. Completing the tutorial comes with a Fishcoin reward. Fishcoins are also obtained by completing in game tasks. Another way to get Fishao rewards is by hunting achievements. The achievement system is divided into area achievements and general achievements. Notifications come in handy if you want to be up to date with the game events. Fishing tournaments take place quite often. Energy is a limited resource spent when fishing but there’s no energy cost when done in a tournament. Even though the game is mostly about fishing, it doesn’t lack cosmetic character customization. The options aren’t as rich as for MMORPG games but players can select gender, hair style and personalize the color of their outfits. Fishing equipment (rods, hooks and baits) is available, while better gear comes at higher levels.
The Fishdex keeps track of the fish you catch. Veteran players have lots of different fish species in their fishdex. Fishing in Fishao is just like questing for XP. There are zones that have an XP boost so make sure to fish in the right waters if you want to level up fast. It’s a good idea to visit all the available zones at least once a day and complete the daily tasks. Some mini games require a team. Players can easily interact and form parties. Developers put a lot of work into the MMO social interaction. This feature is considered one of Fishao's best aspects.
