Guides and articles for Idle Games, also called Iterative or Clicker games. Popular on mobile and PC, these games tend to have ever-increasing amounts of upgrades and expand the options available to the player as progression occurs.
They are often progression focused to the point of self-parody. Sir TapTap creates guides for a wide variety of idle games especially on Mobile platforms.
This site has guides for Tap Tap Fish – AbyssRium, A Girl Adrift, Potion Maker, Green The Planet 2 and more!
Potion Maker is a hard game to describe, something like a very simple Item Shop management game mixed with a Clicker game but without the Idle aspect. Potion Maker is available for iOS and Android. Here you’ll find info on how to make the most of what Potion Maker gives you, unlock the unlockables, and perform the best you can in the time-limited Events.
Feel free to comment if you have a question or any information to share!

2018-01-31: Latest event!
2018-01-08: New year’s event for Pio!
2017-12-23: Christmas event for Tia!
2017-12-01: Latest event. 3rd anniversary of the game! As a bonus players get 30 free Nyan tickets a day for two weeks now.
2017-10-18: Updated the Events section to be clearer on how to do an event request when necessary
2017-07-15: Event: Summer Vacation 2017. App must be updated to get the new event.
2017-06-30: New event: Volunteer Work with Neet event, some Fairy info getting started.
2017-06-15: Summer class with Tia event! Google Play achievements added, accessed in the Achieve menu.
2017-05-31: New event info, Halak Birthday Event, with costumes for Pio. Added Requests section. Clarified Quests.
Potion Maker has Events that happen about twice a month and have special Requests, as well as unique conditions to earn up to two special outfits for one of the characters.
Generally events cycle so there’s one event for Pio outfits then one for Tia outfits. The Event Requests can be completed with any NPC quest-giving character with equal success rate regardless of NPC level, and should be considered a very high priority as they unlock extremely good rewards, such as tons of Likeability and event-exclusive fairies. Try to take on every request you possibly can.
If the event says “fulfill request X times” you need to wait for an NPC to come with a Quest (not a Challenge Quest with a crown), then tap their icon, then tap Requests. The event request should be at the very top and say Limited on it. Tap that request and then confirm the request. They usually take 7 hours to complete but have a 100% chance of success, so there’s a very tight window if you want to get all 30 requests done in the 15 day window of most events; that’s two per day, and you can barely squeeze in 3 a day if you miss any.
Birdstopia – Idle Bird Clicker, as they call it, is a clone of TapTap Fish/AbyssRium (to a rather severe extent). It’s a mobile clicking game focused on ornithology (that’s the study of birds, or the technical term; birbs) with a nice flat design style. It’s out now for iOS and Android.
Since I did a guide for AbyssRium and this game copied about 70% of it’s gameplay directly from Abyssrium I thought I’d make a guide for it in case AbyssRium fans take a liking to it. Feel free to ask questions in the Comments section below.
As a mini review it certainly won’t blow you away as it’s clone-status is pretty visible, but it’s a nice change of pace if your idle game of choice has slowed down and you want that feeling of a fresh game with reasonable progress again. The bird theme is certainly a plus.
A fairly large update was just released for Tap My Katamari, obsoleting a lot of info (and glitches) I planned to post here. I’m still adding all I know, but feel free to let me know what I’m missing. For now this is majorly incomplete and I know, but I’d like to start helping sooner rather than later.
Edit: Abyssrium (a much better game) updated, and this update doesn’t actually work right. If anyone sends in tips I’ll gladly add info, but otherwise work on this guide is on hiatus until the game sucks less.
2017-01-11: Skeleton of guide. Waited too long to publish this so here goes.
2017-10-17: Added info on the new IAP thanks to Tachys in the comments!
2017-09-15: Green The Planet 2 updated with two new IAP, one to disable ads, the other I’m not sure how it works but it claims to speed up analysis. If anyone bought them I’d love to know the exact details!
2017-05-14: Started playing again. Started some updates: Of note, Auto Launcher now works for charge weapons!
2017-05-01: I lost my save file for this Green The Planet 2 a while back and noticed the game and the guide have been picking up traction. If I’m missing anything let me know or ask a question and I’ll try to improve the guide.
You can support me and my guides monthly on Patreon (and score some rewards like cute cat pictures)! The more I earn the more time I can spend on improving guides like this. My PayPal is a thing too if you can’t do monthly subscriptions.
2019-01-15: For some reason an update removed the cloud save buttons in the event tanks. You can still find them in the options menu of the main tank.
2018-12-10: Christmas event coming soon it sounds like. Appears almost all facebook features have been removed, including the achievement and friends list. Unsure if Spadefish still works.
2018-11-14: Some info from the facebook PR person. Thanks to Farmerlesbian for these:
-They should increase the vitality cap on both fresh water and halloween tank.
-The Halloween tank is here to stay.
-She doesn’t know yet if we will still be able to create fish once the event ends, but it will most likely be like freshwater, more a new tank than an event.
-They are going to try to make the fish from the Halloween tank available in the main one, but she’s unsure if the tech team will be able to do so.
-Doesn’t know what will happen next with future events
2018-11-12: The Puffin subscription appears to have been removed from the game (good). If you still own it, Restore Purchases in settings should re-activate it in the Abyss tank. It does not seem to work in the others.
2018-11-07: Minor app update, seems to have just added a “restore purchases” button in settings.
2018-09-10: Major update: Freshwater update! Here’s the Reddit thread with more info while I’m adding it to the guide. Thanks as always to /u/farmerlesbian for collecting info! I livestreamed the new features for those who want to take a peek now!
2018-09-04: No new event yet. Rest in pieces 1 event per month schedule.
The new subscription option is terrible and I recommend against even trying the free trial. Even if you pay $100 the puffin is only rented, never owned by you.
2018-08-15: Some people are getting the subscription update, prices and some info here. If you get the free trial, be sure to manually cancel the subscription, it renews weekly otherwise (AKA the worst deal of the three). If you’re bored of the unending Anniversary event (that is still not over btw), come try Food Fantasy with me.
2018-07-16: Confirmed the price of the baby shark, and that the baby corgi can be bought with event currency (no IAP) after buying all 3 new baby fish.
2018-07-11: Made a video discussing problems with the latest event. Also the baby corgi may not require the paid corgi after all, we’ll have to see on july 17th.
2018-07-07: Both the 2018 anniversary and Krill fusion update guides are now 100% complete on information! Enjoy!
2018-07-03: Sounds like the event was delayed a little bit, but probably still coming soon. In the meantime I’ve been playing Pokemon Quest myself, and made a Pokemon Quest Recipe Guide to help myself and others keep track.
2018-06-29: Pirate Event ending within the day, expect Anniversary Event within a couple weeks at most.
2018-06-13: Developers have teased a second anniversary event, most likely early july.
2018-05-15: AbyssRium got a new Social Media manager! Thank goodness. Ignore their post about save files though; all that means is the server will be down for 2 hours. Just think of it as being unable to play (as most features will not work). You will not lose existing save data.
2018-05-09: AzureMarlin made a species guide for those curious about the real life fish behind AbyssRium! Added it to the Addendum.
2018-05-02: Ancient Egypt event is on. Song of the Moon’s currency bonus is still done, but there’s a new mechanic to earn extra candy as well.
2018-04-06: Moved the Fusion Fish Info to live exclusively in the fusion fish mini-guide to keep things more organized and so there’s only one place to update.
2018-04-03: I made a thread on reddit about the real problem with the game: They don’t interact with or ultimately, respect the community. I sent them a message offering to help them out as a community manager. I expect to be ignored, but if you want the game to get better I’d message them on facebook about this. They need a community manager bad, someone that actually listens to people and communicates back. Their current facebook manager does nothing of the sort and the game is direly affected by it. More details in the thread. I also posted about how the Valentine’s Event could have been fun.
2018-04-02: Updated my “all hidden fish” video for clarity & quality. There’s an update that “generously” adds a 1000 sakura bonus for the 5000 taps mission (1/5th of a sakura per tap once per day!). And people wonder why I consider the devs player-hostile. Keep telling them this sucks on facebook.
2018-04-01: The Spring update “fixed” the bug where a picture of Bonito unlocked Wahoo as well.
2018-03-29: Spring event guide! They fixed all the bad stuff EXCEPT Song of the Moon still doesn’t work—but they didn’t reduce costs for fish either. Very rude to new players without candy stocked. Either lower the prices 10-20x or bring back SOTM. I livestreamed the event earlier, watch the archive if you want to see what it’s all about!
Removed Event information from main guide to keep it only in mini-guides. This way all the info is still here but easier to read and update. Should make the main guide a bit faster to load too.
2018-03-28: Spring event starting to roll out. It sounds like it sucks less than expected (no gachapon for new fish) but more than hoped (no Song of the Moon effect for candy). I’ll have an update whenever.
2018-03-16: Listed a couple months-old bugs the developers will never fix.
2018-03-07: Posted probably my last video guide for AbyssRium on YouTube, along with an explanation of why. Fusion Fish list updated, possibly the last substantial update for this guide itself. Removed any passage that may have accidentally suggested that it is ever a good idea to pay exploitative developers or watch their ads.
2018-03-02: There will be no further updates to this guide and I will no longer provide support to avoid indirectly providing monetary support to this exploitative publisher, Cheetah Mobile. I will not cover the Nintendo Switch version either.
Unless the next event shows a clear respect for players (extremely unlikely) this is it. I strongly urge you delete AbyssRium and play something that respects your time. Animal Crossing Pocket Camp for example is a game that gets better every update instead of worse.
2018-02-26: The raging player-hostile dumpster fire Valentine’s Day Event ends March 12th.
2018-02-14: Site update not guide update, but I fixed offline caching on sirtaptap.com. If you use “add to home screen”, especially in Firefox or Chrome, you should get added functionality and offline caching on supported devices just like an app!
2018-02-10: Valentine’s Day Mini-guide. I only made this to spare you. I no longer support or recommend supporting Cheetah Mobile in any way. I recommend deleting the app and not looking back.
2018-02-06: The devs facebook icon has turned to Valentine’s, safe to assume the slow rollout should start very soon. Guide will be updated with the fish info as soon as it comes in.
2018-02-03: Valentines Update coming “Maybe next week”
2018-01-29: Sounds like people who missed New Years event items will get them in their inboxes soon because of the bugs!
2018-01-26: Apparently AbyssRium was announced for Nintendo Switch! That will be interesting to see.
2018-01-24: Updated for the new fusion fish update! This is not the Krill update, nor the Valentines Event. Also added the new Expand items.
2018-01-22: The devs have confirmed a Valentine’s Day event is coming as early as this week or as late as (early) February. It’s all but certain the Saltwater Croc and New Year’s Event fish/Expand items will no longer be obtainable after that update, so get what you can this week!
2018-01-15: A major bug in Expand feature is causing items that cost Pearls to disappear. It’s unclear why but many users are having it. Take note of how many expand items you have and avoid using the feature until a fix is out. Send a Direct Message to the AbyssRium Devs on facebook or email them via the Gear menu ingame to get help, they always restore Pearl purchases when notified.
2018-01-04: New Mini-Event: New Year’s Gift! The new update also shows Luck Shell rates which are pretty much as bad as you’d expect. See Fusion Fish for info about the new Fusion Fish too. Collector achievement rank 10 is finally possible without Premium fish!
2018-01-03: Tidied up the site and guide for faster loading. Please remember you donations help me maintain the site! Devs have also confirmed and upcoming New Years Event and more fusion fish! No mini-guide for this update since it’s not really substantial enough.
2017-12-26: The Christmas event ends January 5th. That means if you have less than 33 gift boxes left to claim for the Corgi Claus as of today you can get it without spending Pearls.
2017-12-25: Merry Christmas! The devs sent a tiny gift of 150 pearls to everyone, it’s in Inbox in the Gear menu.
2017-12-16: I made a post on reddit detailing exactly how incredibly useless Coral vitality is.
2017-12-08: The app updated with some bugfixes for the christmas issues. The train should refresh properly now and the rewards for 6 gift opens should work now.
2017-12-04: Jolly Penguin’s ingame unlock text is wrong, it requires the theme not dye. I “love” this game sometimes… Thanks a visual bug, it’s been even more thoroughly proven that the Tiny Luck Shell “near miss” slots are loaded separately from the real prize. As you can see in the buggy image, the near miss slots are loaded before the final prize is even calculated. Speaking of bugs, here’s a video showcasing all the bugs in the Christmas update.
2017-12-03: Bug found with Gift Boxes (never open Toy Train gift boxes with pearls except in multiples of 3). iOS users in particular seem to have a large number of bugs with this event. Not sure of workarounds for most yet.
2017-11-29: Christmas Event information released, see the Christmas Event heading! ALL Hidden Fish already found, including all inf on Gift Boxes and Christmas Cards!
Subscribe to push notifications for sirtaptap.com to get info like this as soon as it’s known!
2017-11-28: SirTapTap.com now supports Push Notifications! You should get a prompt when visiting asking if you want to enabled them. If you do, you’ll get notifications for new guides or major updates to games/guides. Notifications should be sparse, maybe once a week in most cases.
2017-11-17: Broken record here, but do not update to iOS Version 1.5.2. Yeah, they broke the game. Again. Not like it’s ever not-broken. Anyway, in 1.5.2, the Event End Timer always starts with only 10 minutes left, and you have to close the app every 10 minutes to get the event to show up again. If you already have it don’t panic, just close the app every time the event “expires”, it’s not really gone.
2017-11-16: Do not update to version 1.5.1 if you have the Halloween Cat, one of various bugs it introduces disables the double candy earning from the Halloween Package.
The 1.5.1 app update is out for some people (I don’t have it; app updates always roll out slowly). It has a bug causing a Reindeer Tang to visually replace the Mimic Tang. Sneak peek at the Christmas event I guess. Also, Fall/Anniversary fish have been added to the Luck Shell.
2017-11-15: I’ve noticed multiple users dissatisfied with Premium Fish lately, so I’ve updated the Premium Fish section to highlight info you’ll want to know before you buy. Best advice: Don’t buy them.
2017-11-10: Created a Fusion Fish Mini-Guide. Like all my mini-guides it’s compact and focused for easy reading and quick loading on mobile.
2017-11-09: Updated the “notification fish” section to more thoroughly clarify these fish do not require a notification and how to force Tap Tap fish to give you them if you’re not getting notifications.
2017-11-08: Word from the developers is the Halloween event will end in early December.
2017-11-03: A site called “tap tap fish dot net” is blatantly plagiarizing my content and slapping their own ads all over it, while making it harder to read (presumably to hide the plagiarism). Video on the situation here. They have no affiliation with me. Don’t bother using the site since it just steals information from here so it’s just this site but slower, spread over multiple pages, and later.
Huge thanks to the abyssrium subreddit who’s always on point with events! Confirmed the legendary Sun Fish is back and can be unlocked (tap sunfish vitality 100 times)! Get it before they remove it for no reason a third time
2017-10-17: It’s looking very likely we’ll be getting a Halloween event with new and old fish, so don’t waste your Leaves. They carry over.
2017-10-16: I started a guide for A Girl Adrift, a game very similar to AbyssRium, in case any players want to check out that guide, ask questions or submit info. It’s another idle game that’s even fish-focused!
2017-10-12: The Fall Event is said to end October 23rd! That would seem to leave just enough time to start the Halloween event! There will be no in-game timer this time!
2017-10-11: Update your game! Star Striped Marlin’s spawn rate was raised to 100%!
2017-10-09: Introducing Mini Guides! Starting with a hidden fish list, and a Fall Event Guide, Mini Guides will be extra small, laser focused guides on a specific element of AbyssRium for easier loading, reading, and bookmarking on mobile devices. This main guide will still be kept up to date and considered the “bible” for AbyssRium info. The mini guides are just for quicker reference.
Noted a bug for the Fall Theme (stars don’t display on some devices, seemingly unfixable).
2017-09-29: Server migration to Linode complete! Sir TapTap.com is now free from The Man (aka managed hosting). Sorry for any hiccups you may have seen, things should be smooth as undersea butter now.
2017-09-28: Fall Event seems to be out for most people now, and the can’t log in to google/facebook bug seems to be fixed in the latest update.
2017-09-27: Added Bonito and Red Lobster into the main Hidden Fish list as well so people ignoring the Fusion Fish section don’t miss them. Also it’s been found on Reddit that Tiny Luck Shell (and possibly the others) have a strong bias towards the Spring event fish vs the others.
Also, Google removed the app fraudulently swiping my copyrighted work.
2017-09-25: The AbyssRium Subreddit and /u/idlestate have discovered a Space Theme in the game! It exists only as a placeholder right now and cannot be permanently obtained. You can see it if your friends on Facebook have the Fall theme equipped before you have the Fall update, or if you install the fall theme then roll back your app version (not recommended!). It may be added for real in the future.
2017-09-22: Fall Event is in beta testing, a small number of users have it. Added info on the event. Host move is on hold, going to Linode now instead of Hostgator due to SSL issues.
2017-09-14: The best place to ask me a question is in the comments below, not on Facebook, Instagram, email etc. Updated the Comments header to better match this.
2017-09-11: Info about the new update should be largely complete. Reordered the Hidden Fish list to group by unlock condition and started bolding the fish names to make it easier to scan for specific fish.
2017-09-03: Updated the Fusion Fish section with preliminary info on the new update.
2017-08-31: /u/thefirstreddituser on reddit ran some numbers on the Tiny Luck shell, added their data to that section. Spoilers: Those ‘near misses’ Tap Tap Fish shows you are entirely fake and the odds are exactly as bad as you’d expect. I’m honestly tempted to remove the section entirely or replace it with a warning to not use the luck shell, but for now, at least some numbers.
2017-08-10: Added a video for the Daily Vitality Ritual, a way to get the most out of AbyssRium in the least time per-day. It’s been long enough since the update I figure everyone has had Android quests removed; removed the relevant section, RIP best game mechanic. Demoted some headings to clean up the table of contents.
2017-07-13: Sirtaptap.com is now a Web App! That means you can use Add To Home Screen (instructions here) on your phone and get benefits like offline cached access and faster loading.
2017-06-30: New app update, Fusion Fish! Added sections for Farms and Fusion. Might have to re-arrange the table of contents/sections but for now the info is there
2017-06-27: New info on notification fish Whale Shark which appears to require the Star Horn coral, and if you don’t get the fish sometimes you need to close the app and restart if the app was already running when the notification appeared.
Added a “to top” button for mobile users to quickly hop back up since the guide is long. Use the Table of Contents, Luke!
2017-06-19: Added some info to the Customization section as users have reported finding the Halloween Potion/theme items after getting Ghost Fish in the Luck Shell. We’re still not 100% sure how it works as it’s inconsistent, but usually people get a Ghost Fish (the fish named Ghost Fish, not just any fish that’s a ghost) in the Gacha and on next restart of Tap Tap Fish they have the theme items.
2017-06-09: Added info to Vitality Sources section (each fish upgrade costs roughly 3.5 times the prior fish) and a couple new achievement levels’ cost were found. Added notes that Check Attendance and Daily Attendance fish are not consecutive days. Take all the breaks you want.
2017-06-06: Updated info on Volcanic Eruption, turns out it’s last 10 levels raise taps per second not length. It sucks less now!
AbyssRium now updated with “increased chance of striped marlin”!
2017-06-01: AbyssRium straight up lied on facebook to 100k fans about the Striped Marlin spreading even more false rumors about it. Nothing in that post is true and I’ve added even more info to this guide and the Striped Marlin Guide to debunk it. Please do not spread false rumors about the Marlin, a lot of people are genuinely upset at their inability to get it and spreading false rumors is extremely bad. Please do encourage AbyssRium to hire someone who speaks native English and actually knows the game (I’d volunteer, lol) to handle their social media and localization so this stops happening.
2017-05-31: Some new info on Luck Shell regarding what’s NOT in it (premium fish) and the sudden appearance of Halloween Themes for some users. Added a couple more tricks in the cheating the clock section. Added newly found Luck Shell ‘exploit’.
2017-05-27: If you’re here because of the notification, see Luck Shell. It’s not quite as nice as the notification made it sound, sorry. Added some rough guidelines for the Collection feature.
2017-05-26: Some more Luck Shell (gacha) info. Started filling in the Collection info.
2017-05-24: Collection update is coming soon, and some of us have it already! Adding info now, here’s a video rundown. Added a possible fix for iOS users missing notification fish in Bugs section.
2017-05-23: Lots of Facebook users use this guide, so I added a facebook like/share box just above. It’ll help more people find the site if you care to like.
2017-05-17: Added some more info on Expand items. Corrected Normal Fish info. Added suggestions for optimizing the daily missions.
2017-05-12: Various edits for presentation, reduced number of high-order headings to declutter table of contents. Added info on a couple new bugs.
2017-05-10: Discovered more changes in latest update (listed below), including new benefits for IAPs, faster gem ad cool downs. Discovered only 1 1000 year old blue whale can be bought.
2017-05-08: Corrected errors and finally completed the Normal Fish section’s requirement list. Updated the Striped Marlin info a bit. Updated info about the 10,000 year old blue whale.
2017-05-06: Expand update is out for everyone, added a new section.
2017-05-01: Added some info about coral’s strange vitality efficiency curve. Added some info since it seems some people can’t get certain hidden fish without sharing photos even though it only says to save/take them. Posted a video about the top 5 UI failures in Abyssrium.
2017-04-13: Added info on total butterflies required for spring event. Clarified the January Fish unlocks to make it even more clear that the Coral are required even though they’re hidden fish. Added some FAQ entries and finished listing the Normal Fish unlocks. Also, the Abyssrium Subreddit finally has active mods (including me) and a new style! Check it out if Reddit is your thing.
2017-3-31: Misc updates on the Spring event. The Spring/Easter update came to my phone, so most people should have it by now! I’m usually one of the last. Updated Prized Walking Fish’s info, it seems to have been re-added for new players.
2017-3-30: All Spring/Easter Event fish found!
2017-3-29: Spring Event started! Only 2 hidden fish are undiscovered. Added info on Midas Tap to Skills. Spoilers: It kinda sucks, don’t buy it. Also added a tip in Misc Tips for iOS users to get gems faster. A couple additions to Credits.
2017-3-24: Added some info on corals to the Vitality Sources section.
2017-3-16: Spring event coming soon! My phone is dead and hasn’t been repaired yet, so I might be a little slow, but as always submit any info you know that’s missing and I’ll add it as soon as I can.
2017-3-7: Added Videos section for visual learners.
2017-2-28: Added Translation option (just above) for non-english users. Note fish names may not be translated accurately, and it’s all automatic translation so errors are expected.
2017-2-27: New tip for Striped Marlin
2017-2-17: Clarified the notification fish situation
2017-2-16: Cleared up some confusion in the January Update Fish section, hopefully. Added all normal fish.
2017-2-14: Reduced number of headings in the Table of Contents, added shortcut to the comments. Added Normal Fish section because why not.
2017-2-11: Valentine’s day update is out for everyone! Added info for Giftbox Dolphin, we should have all info for Valentine’s day’s event! Corrected Best Method for earning candies now that Seahorse AI is broken.
2017-2-10: Pink Whale shark found
2017-1-09: Valentine’s day fish added. Update isn’t out for everyone. Quelle surprise.
2017-1-31: Backfilled the Updates section to show which fish were added when for the most part. Added a layout bug, and come clarification under “January Update” on the new Corals’ cost since a few people were confused due to how Abyssrium lists them.
2017-1-29: Importantupdate on Abyssrium’s facebook page. They’re responding to fan feedback, announced a Valentine’s Day event, and they’re considering changing the name back to Abyssrium from “Tap Tap Fish”. As a personal request, please comment there (or @abyssrium on twitter) and ask them to change the game’s name back to Abyssrium. The new name sucks and I hate having to change my guide’s title to the current clunky mess just to help people searching via the new name.
2017-1-28: New condition for Manta Ray discovered
2017-1-26: Site issues out of my control, keep retrying if you have problems. Added Migaloo unlock.
2017-1-24: Major reorganization to keep things neater.
Legendary Sun Fish is apparently only back if you already unlocked it. Almost done finding the new hidden fish! Split out game and guide updates for easier reference and so I have a place to just cleanly state new features, since adding a new section for each update is no longer working. Expect a moderate rework of the guide eventually.
2017-1-23: Legendary Sun Fish AKA Survive Mola Mola is back!! I also noticed there’s a new third set of Surging Vitality achievements and vitality boosts.
2017-1-22: AbyssRium’s app has been officially renamed “Tap Tap Fish”, and I hate that. But hey, the January update came out.
2017-1-18: Upcoming app update! Read about the new update here on Abyssrium’s facebook. 25 new fish, coming right when the Christmas Event ends. It’s late in the game, but with the “best method” you can still get quite a lot of the christmas event done in just a few days!
2017-1-10: Created a video Getting Started In Abyssrium Guide. Prized Walking fish is no longer available as of 2-017-1-1. Changed wording around the ‘palette’ menu to refer to it as “customization” since “theme” was ambiguous. Forgot which year it was.
2018-01-24: App Version 1.5.7: Fusion update (not the krill one)! Not As always, staggered rollout, do not panic, you may get the update up to a week after the first rollouts, there is nothing you can do to get the update faster.
New Bug: Multitouch for 3+ fingers no longer working
Expand Bug is NOT fixed, avoid placing expand items until it is!
Salt Water Crocodile ends the 25th!
9 New Fusion fish
Manatee is a time-limited fusion fish that lasts until 33 days from now
New Sun Coral, Moss Rock and Arch Rock Expand items
The To Do List feature seems to be permanent now. There are tasks to get 4 free fusion fish now.
Landscape display mode is now supported in Camera mode only.
Common Dolphin’s name was corrected to Right Whale Dolphin
Assistant sea otter ($10, can only buy one, no extras) is back in the shop. Don’t buy it.
2018-01-04: 1.5.6: New Fusion fish. Yes, slow rollout. It’s always a slow rollout.
5 new Fusion Fish
2 new New Year’s Event Fish (event hasn’t started yet, fish not obtainable, but they’re listed in Manage Fish)
New Expand items for farms.
New IAP options.
No, none of them are worth it. The auto harvest one will get you a good short-term supply of seaweed but that’s about it, and none of them are permanent.
2017-12-01: 1.5.4: Christmas Event! 26 new fish, Gift Boxes to get 2016 Christmas fish. Slow rollout, don’t panic, etc.
Fall and Anniversary Event Fish (yes including baby fish) added to Luck Shell. Luck Shell pearl costs temporarily reduced by 50%, but Luck Shell is still a poor way to spend pearls, especially now that it’s known that it’s NOT the only way to get fish you missed.
All missing Event Themes added to the Themes menu, including Christmas 2016 and Halloween 2016. They can be bought for $1 each.
2017-10-15: Version 1.5.1 is a minor update that adds Fall/Anniversary fish into Luck Shell. As always, it’s a slow rollout so don’t panic if you don’t have it yet; you can’t do anything but wait. It also has a bug where Mimic Tangs are displayed as the upcoming Christmas event’s Reindeer tang.
Unrelated to the event, a “daily pearls/gems” package was added to the store’s Gem tab trying to get some more money from players.
2017-06-10: Farm/skill refresh exploit patched (for real this time!). It’s possible to disable auto updates if you want to keep the bug for a bit since no major content was added. Changed Collector! achievement to count Fusion fish so level 9 is finally possible.
2017-06-30: Fusion & Farms update!
New Farm section in the Coral menu
Buy farms with pearls
Harvest materials to fuse fish
5 Materials total, only 2 available now, Seaweed and Clams
Bug: Farms instantly complete if you close the app or bring down the full Notification Drawer on Android
New Fusion section in the Fish menu
Fuse existing Normal Fish and Farm material to slightly increase Vitality bonus from Fish
While fish are “consumed” in the fusion process their vitality multiplier stays, as does the current Fish price
New Farms and Fusion Fish will release monthly, 20 available today.
The Event icon updated to a Star (no event live yet, allegedly August). Probably an Anniversary event.
Actions that result in watching an add are now properly labeled with a little “ad” sticker.
Google Play Quests were removed. (Sad trombone)
2017-06-02: Increased chance of striped Marlin! Fixed bug where sand castles/craters would not be upgraded properly. Fixed crash bugs, fixed cosmetic issue with Volcanic Eruption.
2017-05-27: Collection Update is live! (For most).
Added Luck Shell gachapon feature for winning vitality/gems/pearls/past event fish.
Added Collection feature where fish lists can be completed to earn Pearls.
New UI changes, Luck Shell added as a secondary menu to Fish, Store now has three tabs for Vitality, Gems/Fish, and Pearls. Expand was moved to the main menu.
Fixed cloud saving taking forever bug.
New bug where people are randomly getting the Halloween theme items forcibly applied and unlocked. Go to the Palette menu when the main menu is closed to change them.
2017-05-07: Expand update should be out for everyone, and the spring event should be over for everyone.
(This section updated 2017-05-10 with new info/bugs)
Double Idle vitality upon revisiting the game by watching an ad (you can choose not to watch if your coral vitality isn’t worth it)
Skills go to level 21 and artifacts go to level 20 now. The skill cooldown artifact still maxes at 10. Prices now raise 100 gems each level past the old cap of 11/10.
Cosmetic change to the photo quest
Expand feature is added allowing purchase and placement of cosmetic & gameplay-affecting items in special areas.
Daily tasks to earn pearls and some vitality benefits.
The 10 gem ad cooldown was reduced to 15 minutes from 30
Midas tap now has a free 3 minute trial
Midas Tap now counts for Hard Worker achievement
Premium (“Package”) fish now come with Create Life cost reductions, meaning cheaper fish, forever.
The reduction is 50% per regular Premium fish, 30% per Event premium Fish.
This effect stacks, meaning if you buy two Premium Fish creating fish is 75% cheaper total.
Keep in mind Coralite/Coral levels remain the same. You can see your total savings in the Manage Fish menu.
This applies retroactively to people who already bought IAPs.
The Harp Seal is back. It’s still $100 an a separate IAP from the Mermaid though. Whales Ahoy.
If you buy the Harp Seal. Ahem. I have a Patreon page you can contribute to if you have too much money.
Daily Mission not resetting
Fixed?, 100 pearls awarded to those who got the bug
Manual save to cloud feature hangs sometimes.
Workaround: Close the app and try saving again. Seems to work about half the time.
2017-05-04: Expand update is up for some. For others, miniature American flags.
2017-04-24: Even more info for Expand Update was shown on Abyssrium’s facebook. The feature will have daily tasks to earn “pearls”, the new currency, and some of the items bought with pearls will increase vitality production. I’m guessing the Spring Event will end just as this update hits first week of may.
2017-04-14: Abyssrium’s Facebook has a tease of the upcoming Expand functionality. Appears to be new Coral as well as some new currency to buy tiles with.
2017-3-29: Spring Event is live (for some people)! As always, it may take a few days for the update to be available to you. I’ll keep the guide updated as well as I can (my phone is dead), if you have a scoop let me know!
2017-3-27: The Abyssrium icon changed to the Spring theme but the app update isn’t out yet. That usually means the event is right around the corner. Scuba bunnies are confirmed to be paid fish.
2017-3-23: Bug fixes including the crash on startup some were getting, Midas Tap (premium skill) added. Midas Tap basically auto taps as long as you hold your finger on the screen equivalent to the Eruption skill. Not very good. Octopus color was arbitrarily changed.
Some users report getting a random and completely game-breaking 10 AG gift in their inbox for some reason.
Frankly if they thought this would somehow fix the coral which is at DL vitality, they’re more incompetent than I thought. We’re not sure of a way to “reject” the gift yet but loading your save might work if your last autosave was from before you accepted the gift.
2017-3-13: Valentine’s Day Event is completely over. Easter might be next.
