Phat Fishes is a game about fishes that are phat. It's in their genes (find more about Tetraodontidae in Wikipedia).

This game was made during Ludum Dare 35, please review it if you enjoyed it! Phat Fishes on Ludum Dare


It"s a couch multiplayer arena game up to 4 fishes. Just push the other fishes into dangerous stuff while avoiding the dangerous stuff yourself.


Arrows to move your fish, action button to toggle bigger / smaller size. Bigger mean you can bounce other fishes a lot, it's also very slow but can be handy to slowdown / play defensive.

  • Player 1 : a/q, s, d, z/w, action : e
  • Player 2 : left, right, up, down arrows, action : right alt key
  • Player 3 : j, k, l, i, action : o
  • Player 4 : f, g, h, t, action : y
  • Pause : escape / tab


Each player has three hearts, last player alive wins duh.


Four fishes from an underwater suburb fight for approval, only to find that in the end, only friendship prevails. THE END. MICHAEL BAY EXPLOSIONS.


You can change the player names in the options, as well as toggle the music on / off. You can pause the game by pressing escape or tab.

About the theme

The theme of the jam was "Shapeshift". Well, fishes can change their shape, but more importantly PHAT FISHES IS AN ANAGRAM FOR SHAPESHIFT!!!
