What is this, Seahorse Captain? What is this, Seahorse-Seashell party? Who didn’t invite me? Why didn’t I get invited?
Some adorable fan art by Big Tuna! Thank you so much. The “sketchy” line style lets it fit perfectly with Yoshi’s Island itself!
This one requires a little explanation, it’s from one of my Megaqarium livestreams where we decided Lumpsucker sounds more like an insult than a fish (it’s both now). I also, as I always do when I see seahorses, referenced Drinking Out Of Cups, which if you haven’t seen it, well you just have to see to understand.
This is a guide for Tap Tap Fish – AbyssRium, with only the Valentine’s Day Event (2019) information. See the main guide for other events and general game information. Feel free to add any of my guides to your homescreen for easy access, and offline loading of guides you’ve used (on supported devices)!
Total Cost: 625,500 roses!!!! Fusion Materials: 3050 Seaweed, 640 clams, 275 Urchins
Time: over 30 days worth of max level crab casts or 626 ad watches, plus 82 hours of manual Urchin collection
Making this tie for one of the most expensive ever, and everyone starts from scratch
How It Works
Estimated Difficulty: Extremely high. Over 600,000 candy required.
Apparently we were told candy would carry over to the next event. I personally do not trust this at all given the multiple times they’ve gone back or attempted to go back on that.
Slow rollout starting 2019-01-29, slow rollouts mean it can take up to a week to get it
It’s a return to the old “crab” style events; it’s in the Saltwater tank, the Hermit Crab is back and can be cast 10 times per day for free
Theme, Dye, and Costume for coralite will be included like old times!
17 new fish + 1 IAP. 1 “Quest” fish unlocked by completing a vague quest, just like Egypt/Pirate/2nd Anniversary events. If you missed those you can check out those guides for how they worked.
2017 fish are back too.
2018 fish/coral are NOT back, except Pygmy Whales
New attendance mission with 5 new rewards for daily check ins up to 20 days
Valentine’s Day Event Roadmap
First, note all your candies are gone (Halloween stole them) so you’re starting from 0. You need 200 candies to buy the Banquet Hall Dye to unlock the crab, which should be your first step. Watching 2 ads is enough, though you should keep tapping candy for the 50 candy Quest.
With 200 roses collected, close the main menu and tap the painter’s palette, then the Dye tab to get the Banquet Hall Dye and Crab. Tap the Event tab again to get the crab, it’s free real estate.
With the Dye and Crab purchased, you should be casting it as often as possible, up to 10 times per day (you can recharge it halfway for 100 pearls, a total rip-off so don’t).
The crab is the fastest and easiest way to get candy, especially without a macro (which requires Nox Player and a PC or Mac). Keep the dye equipped, because otherwise you can’t use the crab. Don’t bother tapping roses unless you’re charging the crab, it’s seriously a drop in the ocean compared to ads and the crab. Only if you’re using a macro should you try otherwise.
To make tapping candy easier, store all fish but 5 or more Jellyfish or Clownfish. They stay in a small area and are easy to tap.
Level up the crab the instant you can each time, it’s hard to overstate how critical it is to completing this style of event.
Complete each step of the Quest as soon as you can, as a couple steps require you to perform tasks after unlocking the step.
With the help of the ads you should be able to get the Hermit Crab to level 6-8 within the first 24 hours, after which you can focus more on collecting the fish. Just be sure to finish upgrading the crab once you have the 30 fish required for the final levels.
Valentine’s Day 2019 Hidden Fish
The event’s not released yet, so we don’t know the specifics yet. Here’s a list of the fish that I can see from the preview image, the names are made up.
Candy Goldfish (Hidden)
Watch 15 Event ads for roses
Couple Kissing Gourami (Hidden)
Equip Banquet Hall Dye and use Volcanic Eruption skill 3 times
Bouquet Sea Slug
Own 5 Lace Spadefish
Own 5 Candy Goldfish
Couple Lobster (Hidden)
Have a Candy Nautilus in your tank for 10 minutes
The game has to be open and on screen for these kinds of unlocks. You can still play the game though.
Own 5 Couple Lobster
Own 20 Valentine’s 2019 Fish
Parfait Puffer (Hidden)
Equip Banquet Hall Dye and use crab skill 25 times
Couple Seahorse (Hidden)

Equip Romantic Ocean Theme and take 1 picture of every Candy/Couple fish
None of the corals or fish are available, except the Pygmy Whales. They’re in the “returning fish” tab, the Orange Clownfish icon at the top of the Event menu. They are Fusion Fish making them extremely costly.
A Pair of Pygmy Right Whales
2 Wedding Town Whales
Valentine’s 2017 Fish
These are also in the “returning fish” tab, the Orange Clownfish icon at the top of the Event menu. They are Fusion Fish making them extremely costly. They all cost fusion materials (see the fusion guide) plus 2 2019 Valentine’s fish.
Pink Juvenile Pinnate Spadefish
Pink Striped Marlin
Pink Whale Shark
Wedding Town Whale
Valentine’s Day 2019 IAP Fish
Not required to unlock any other fish
This is another 20 day set of rewards just like the New Year’s Gift. Also like New Year’s Gift, you frustratingly only get a single one of each item and can do nothing to accelerate how fast you get anything beyond longing in once a day. Hopefully we have more than 20 days unlike the NYG at least.
Valentine’s Harp Coral
Log in 3 days
Gentleman Flamingo Coral
Log in 5 days
Baby Pink Whale
Log in 10 days
Lady Flamingo Coral
Log in 15 days
Baby Heart Sunfish
Log in 20 days
Valentine’s Parade Event Quest
Much simpler than the separate tank quests, the Valentine’s Day one is only a quest to unlock the Cupid Girl fish. Note you have to complete these in order.
Decorate the Party
Tap 50 roses
Own 1 of each Candy fish
Yes that is the requirement, there are no candies to get, I don’t know why people keep asking this. Just do what is said on the requirements in the guide and totally ignore the ingame UI text, it is terrible and misleading.
Who is the best couple
After this quest unlocks, make one of each “couple” fish

Updates:2019-01-13: Two new fish added, one is an IAP one is just another quest after the Turtle please stop asking about them all the info on how to get them is in the game’s update notes 2018-12-14: All fish conditions found! It seems like the lockdown on the Halloween tank has been delayed. Video guide. BTW Freshwater’s lag was fixed. 2018-12-12: I streamed the Christmas event thursday!
The English/Global version of Azur Lane is finally getting the Hyperdimension Neptunia crossover event that previously hit the Chinese and Japanese versions of the game. Since I usually do guides for Neptunia games and picked up the game just for this crossover, I figured I’d make a little guide for players in a similar situation.
Updates: 2018-11-28: It appears SP4 has the best drop rate for Nep Skin Boxes for cosmetic items
The event just released on 2018-11-22 and runs until 2018-12-05! Filled in most information. I streamed the event on the 22nd including pulls!
The Neptunia characters are viable/high rarity units (Elite and Super Rare, the top two in the game) so if you want to play with just/mostly the Neptunia games it should be pretty viable. Take my advice with a grain of salt though as I only dove in to get the Neptunia characters myself; as always corrections and questions are welcome in the comments below! Or in our Discord Server

Azur Lane Quickstart Info
Azur Lane is a fairly standard “mobage” style collection/RPG game. IF you’ve played FateGO, Fine Emblem Heroes, Food Fantasy, or hundreds of others, you probably know what you’re in for.
If you’re just starting the game/haven’t started yet, you’ll want to get to level 15 as soon as possible. This is achievable within a day or two at most with moderate play; I’m level 30 now in 3 days.
Make sure to go to Settings, Account to bind your account to a Twitter/Facebook account. This is your cloud save option; without it, you may lose your account or be unable to transfer it to a new phone.

2018-12-14: Timer added to the Halloween event, it closes in 7 days but after that you can pay pearls (150 for a month) or watch an ad (once per day for 30 minutes) to unlock the tank again. Free trials of the magic skills were added to the halloween tank.
2018-11-17: Game update, Fall Fish unlocks were drastically improved. Updated unlock conditions in the guide. If you already meet the new unlocks for fall fish that require X number of fish, you may have to buy a new fish of that type to get them to register.
Reduced the earning time for the Witch’s Den items. They now generate vitality at intervals of 1 second, 5 seconds, 30 seconds, 1 minute, 3 minutes, and 5 minutes.
Reduced magic skill cost to 100 pearls per cast and increased skill time to 12 hours.
Adds 1 new hidden fish (Snowy Owl) and 1 new quest
Adds 1 new IAP (Ugly Octopus Trio) and improved the benefits of the IAP in the Halloween tank.
You can now move your Halloween fish to your Saltwater tank!
The Halloween Crab now talks. There’s a script button in Settings in the halloween tank to turn it off
2018-10-25: I streamed the update recently if you want to take a peek!
It is a slow rollout and will take you a while to get. Despite literally every single update AbyssRium has ever done rolling out in the same (stupid) fashion I still get spammed every time it updates about this. Please don’t ask about it.
After too long the Halloween event for 2018 is finally upon us! It’s got it’s own coralite (as many suspected) and is accessed via the Map icon when the main menu is closed, just like Freshwater. As always there’s a slow rollout and it may take up to a week for everyone to get it.
Terrarium: Garden Idle is an idle game in the vein of AbyssRium, AdVenture Capitalist and so on. It finally released for Android so I could play it! It’s a pretty simple game I’ve had fun with so far, so here’s a quick guide to help players getting started.
Title: Terrarium: Garden Idle
Release date: 2018
Platforms: iOS, Android
File size: 125 MB
Developer: Green Panda Games
Genre: Idle Game/Clicker
Price: Free to Play with Ads
Cloud Save: NO
Always Online: No
Battery drain: Medium
Mobile Data drain: None (Offline)/High (Online with video ads)
The game added some new plants (I think), and most importantly a way to store plants.
Terrarium is a pretty basic “clicker” or idle game. All purchases in Terrarium increase your ability to earn more currency, which is used to purchase more abilities to increase currency, etc etc. Since you’re raising plants, Oxygen is the currency of the game, used to buy everything.
If it’s the first idle game you’ve played, it’s a pretty simple one and you shouldn’t have much trouble. You simply buy and “upgrade” plants and tap them to earn more currency, and also cast “skills” in the rainbow tab to, again, get more currency.
Being an idle game, the first thing to remember is that (almost) no mistakes are permanent. If you spend lots of oxygen, the only currency in Terrarium , on something silly, it doesn’t matter much since you can just earn that oxygen back and spend somewhere else. Above all, don’t stress out and just relax.
Collecting currency also lets you “level up”, and level ups must be claimed by tapping the “level up” button in the top right corner, otherwise experience stops accruing until you do so. Leveling up unlocks plants and shelf space, and gives a bonus of Oxygen.
Just for fun/aesthetics, note you can turn on “night mode” (which literally makes it night ingame) in the gear menu, there’s almost no other settings for now.
It’s that Spooky time of the year again, so I hope you’ll join me on YouTube for a series of surreal RPG Maker Horror games this month! It’s what I call Spooktober!
Edit: 2018-10-15: Final half of Spooktober is finalized below!
The streams will feature more atmospheric, psychological horror and less of the jumpscare nonsense, so if you’re usually squeamish, it should still be pretty accessible!
Included are permalinks to each stream, press the Play button to see an option to get a reminder of when the stream goes live on YouTube!
Week 1 (October 6&7th)
Yume Nikki is a surreal classic of RPG Maker fame, more of a Walking Sim/Horror game than RPG. I played it before, along with it’s remake/sequel/something, Yume Nikki Dream Diary, but it’s fantastic and will be framing the rest of the games for the month!
