Nicely designed but too difficult,

This review is from: Last Fish (App)
I like the way this game looks, and the sound. Despite the fact that it's black and white, it's still interesting to look at. I enjoy the game play, it doesn't feel like a lot of the other fish games out there. The controls are good, which is no small feat. The problem is the repetition and difficulty/scoring. It's very stingy with the stars, which is annoying because I'm a perfectionist. even when I feel like I did a great job it might give me 1 star or none. It seems to score based on speed rather than accuracy which seems strange to me. And sometimes I don't know how the heck it's scoring. Basically it's the same few challenges over and over, with increasing difficulty. For example you must get your health to a certain number, hit a certain number of checkpoints (a circle you sit on) or stay alive for a set time. I think I'm on level 15 and already it's too difficult. The death blobs cover the checkpoints or health spots. It really affects my enjoyment.
