When I was five years old, some lady at a Great Clips handed me a purple CD on the way out the door. My life has never been the same.

When you grew up with a game that you cherish so much when you were younger. Revisiting it only makes you feel a strange nostalgic sadness. Truly a masterpiece.

Pre-Release Review
Anyone who had a great childhood played Humongous Entertainment games. I started playing these at about five and now at eighteen me and my twenty five year old sister went back and bought all of the Freddi Fish games. If you're like me and grew up with them then you alrady know that these are the best kids games around to date. They taught problem solving skills and good morals without ever making it seem like work. All the games share a common lay out and a cast of memorable characters that children can really get into. I not only highly recomend these but also highly recomend the entire Humongous Entertainment collection. It's nostalgia at its best for us "older kids" and it's good clean fun for young children that will keep them comming back for hours on end.

P.S. all the Humongous Enternainment package games sport at least two different versions of their stories, one common one and one rare one. It just makes them even more fun...that and the fact that you can quite literally click on anything for a funny result.

You can click on everything. Literally everything. And everything you click on does something. Sometimes it's something different, but more often than not it's the same five fish popping out of stuff, or blinking lights or something. Great fun for all. 10/10

Greatest Game on the face of the Earth. It's a Shakespearean epic, as fanastical and deep as Moras coochie.

During the late 90’s/early 2000’s Humongous Entertainment released an absolutely fantastic stream of “edutainment” point and click adventures for children. These titles focus on a range of light academics including basic geography, basic to upper elementary level mathematics, logical thinking, critical thinking and puzzle solving, topped off with reinforcement of good manners and polite social etiquette. At the lower end of the age spectrum, they may require some adult supervision and supportive guidance, but there is no better series of games for a child’s first venture into PC gaming.

I remember almost nothing about Freddi Fish 3; upon replaying it, some snippets here and there came back to me, but there were also locations that I swear I never saw. From my experience over a decade later, I think The Case of the Stolen Conch Shell is a great entry in the Freddi Fish franchise, but your child's engagement may vary depending on their personal interests. To it’s credit, the solving of a mystery is a great way to develop logical thinking, deductive reasoning and to a strangely competent extent, the ability to read emotional and behavioral clues. Buy the Case of the Missing Kelp Seeds first and if that goes well, consider picking up Freddi Fish 3.

I don’t remember where I first got a copy of this game but I thank the person that got it for me. I loved this game and spent hours playing it. The musical organ was a lot of fun and so were the mini-games. The best part of the game was the clickable items in the scenery. There were so many of them and they were very entertaining.

Childhood relived.

Pretty much nothing here has changed from the second, aside from an endgame sequence being reinstated and a "culprit" minigame being added at the end. But aside from that, it's a bit on the short side compared to the last one, having only 3 macguffins instead of 5. Still great nostalgia fuel though.

My first thought, Oh my god the nostalgia. My second thought, it took my 29 minutes (From the time I opened it, to the time i closed it) to beat the game now. How the hell did it take me over an hour when I was 8. God damn I was not a bright child.
If you played it as a kid, get it for the nostalgia. If you have kids, this game, (and all the other humongous games) are a great way to introduce them to PC games from an early age.

Finished this game after years of only playing a demo version and wondering how the rest of the game went. I have owned and finished Freddi Fish 1 & 2 though, good times. This is a great game for kids, enjoyed the point-and-click little animations most!

This game is not as fun as the previous two entries in the series. It just felt slower and not as clear what there was to do. Maybe it was just the certain combination of locations I had to find the items in. Either way, I had much more fun with the previous two games. It also bugs me that the ending is completely randomized and has zero bearing on anything you find or do.
