The new augmented reality ticket redemption game was a huge hit and reported to be the “Talk of the Show” at EAS and ENADA. Team Play has received a virtual flood of pre-production orders for the new game. If you haven’t already placed your order for Fishbowl Frenzy, then you’re behind your competition!
What’s causing all the fervor over Fishbowl?
Fishbowl Frenzy is strictly a game of skill, which combines electro-mechanical and video elements with a carnival theme reminiscent of your childhood visits to the county fair, trying to win a goldfish in a bowl. Fishbowl Frenzy challenges players to carefully time the mechanical release of a ball, which bounces through a field of pins into one of the fishbowls below.
Actual fishbowls are attached to the face of the game’s transmissive LCD screen, in which charming and adorable 3D fish characters are computer generated. Players can see through the translucent screen to watch the ball drop, waiting in excited anticipation to see where it will splash and how many tickets they will earn.
Fishbowl Frenzy’s delightful computer-generated fish celebrate each win, spinning and jumping with enthusiasm. And, an entertaining carnival “Barker” fish encourages and congratulates the players throughout. The game play is easy to learn and highly addictive. This game is truly something special, and everyone who has seen it agrees.
The earnings reports to date reflect that sentiment, as well. On test since June, Fishbowl Frenzy has proven to be an exceptionally strong performer. One location reports that if there are only four people in the arcade, all four will be lined up for their turn to play Fishbowl Frenzy. In sum, the players are hooked!
The first units of Fishbowl Frenzy are in production and will start shipping this week, much to the delight of those who placed their pre-production orders early. The game’s official release will be at IAAPA 2014 in Orlando, Florida on November 18-21. Fishbowl Frenzy is a contender for IAAPA’s “Best New Product” Brass Ring Award.

Of course, the longer you wait to place your order, the more operators will be receiving their Fishbowl Frenzy before you. So, catch up with your competition and get your order in the queue!
In the meantime, 3D fish will be swimming circles and jumping for joy, because Fishbowl Frenzy is quite the catch!
