Now, we're getting back to some familiar territory in the Freddi Fish series. I only played Missing Kelp Seeds once, and barely touched Haunted Schoolhouse until I actually saw the ghost. But Freddi Fish 3: The Case of the Stolen Conch Shell and I have a personal nostalgic connection.

So, like all my other nostalgic ties, let's take this one and burn it to the f***ing ground.

I will be honest, this is probably the best Freddi Fish game money can buy... I mean, unless you spend an a**load of money developing an unofficial Freddi Fish 6 that's so damn good, it would even be considered by Yahtzee Croshaw to be the best game of 2025.

The reason I enjoyed Freddi Fish Tres so much more than the last two entries was the environment. It's no secret that Freddi Fish 1 had a creepy world that the oddly-cartoonish creatures stuck out like sore thumbs in. And while Freddi Fish 2 was a step in the right direction, the actual environment and fish didn't mesh well. But Freddi Fish 3 has probably the best-matched backgrounds to fit these cartoony fish characters. It's bright, cheerful, and colorful almost everywhere (barring the downed plane and red chasm where the bully-crab kid lives). But the tropical island really fits in with a cheerful kid-friendly color palette of Freddi Fish.

I also like how this is the first entry where those two incredibly thick sharks and their mob-boss, The Squidfather, have been reduced to "Wanted" posters in a jail cell. I hated those three so much. Now, the actual mystery is concealed until the very end. It's up to you and your wits to determine who the thief of the Conch Shell is.

However, where my praise ends is where the gameplay focuses on you finding three golden horns for the conch shell, so that way Luther's uncle's dog, Salty, can sniff out the perpetrator (even though he could just as easily find a trace with one, but whatever). The actual "crime solving" comes down to the very ending where you find a vital clue that fits into these Usual Suspect types, and you can achieve 1 of 6 endings. The gameplay itself only shifts when you have to find the various golden horns. The 6 endings are totally random. In my 1.2 hours of gameplay, I played about 5 times, but only got 3 of the possible endings. So if you have enough patience, or you're a toddler, you'll have plenty of time on your hands until you get all the different endings.

This particular Freddi Fish, while probably the best in the series thus far, is still far from earning a recommendation from me. "Why?" you must be asking. "Is this guy just a d***?"

No, you silly s**. Just look at my other Humongous reviews. The only three games I consider worth playing to anyone who likes good game design and clever jokes are Pajama Sam 1 & 3, and Spy Fox 3, because of their truly unique style, fun characters, and memorable little stories. Freddi Fish still feels like it's made towards the obviously younger demographic of children than Pajama Sam and Spy Fox are. It feels too safe. Too friendly. But it's, by no means, a bad game. It's worth playing if what I described earlier sounds fun to you. And I'm giving this Freddi Fish entry a 6/10.

I played this game A LOT when I was a kid, and when I saw it was on Steam (and on sale), I had to jump on it. It still required something thinking and problem solving, and was still fun over a decade later. I really enjoy this game. The graphics are beautiful and the story line is fun to play through.

Classic point-and-click series by Humongous Entertainment; must play. There is one main storyline but the level build itself will vary between multiple scenarios. Every scene has many easter eggs; you can click on just about anything multiple times. Good for kids who are old enough to understand corny jokes and puns, or just replay it as an adult and reminisce about good games from before the new millenium. (My bias for the Freddi Fish series comes from my childhood.)

i felt like a real fish detective. This game made me feel so many emotions, its hard to describe how good this game is.
The storytelling is breathtaking, the graphics are astonishing and the voice acting is just the best.
All the characters are extremely deep and interesting. This game is probably one of the best thing that ever happend to me.

14 urchins out of 10.

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
Posted: June 6, 2014
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.
