Past March Event Fish
For the first time in quite some time, the prior March event’s fish are NOT available for unlock at this time. It’s unknown if they’ll make a return in a later event or update.
Retro Event 2020 Gameplay
General Event Info
See here for how to use Nox Player to automatically collect event currency on a PC/Mac so you don’t have to destroy your fingers.
The event is in the Abyss/Saltwater Tank like most events, and it will expire once the event time is over, but your event currency should roll over to the next event.
Hermit Crab Levels
The Hermit Crab is the key to completing events. Buy the Event Dye to unlock it, then upgrade it as soon as possible. The costs and earning rates of each level is listed below, but every upgrade pays for itself after a day or so, so don’t worry too much.
|1||Buy event Dye||0 Currency||200 Currency/cast|
|2||5 Event Fish||500||400|
