Review: Leaping Salmon for iPad

leaping salmon

Leaping Salmon, developed by, is a super fun game where your goal is to save as many salmon as you can from the hungry bear. You have just 59 seconds to see if you can get the high score.

Leaping Salmon was developed when the AppChaps team witnessed 100’s of salmon swimming upstream and fighting their way up the river. When they got back to their hotel room, they decided to research the subject more and eventually turned it into a game. Salmon are born in fresh water and liver there for about 2 years before they make their way to the ocean. After awhile they return to the same river where they were born using chemical cues and battle upstream to the spawning areas. During this journey they face many obstacles  including hungry bears.

The game features 5 different levels and you have to pass the level in order to unlock the next one. You have to achieve a 5 star rating (or 4 stars in some levels) for the next level to unlocked. Your goal is to flick your the Salmon in the direction of the objects that the bear is spinning. Watch out for traps and try and collect as many Salmon as possible as well as coins. Once you run out of time, you will see how many Salmon you saved, how many coins you earned and will be rated out of 5 stars.

Overall the game is a bit challenging, but once you get the the hang of it, it gets easier and easier. The music is OK and fits with the game, but if you want to shut it off you can do so in the settings. Leaping Salmon is currently priced at just $0.99 and is available now on the Apple App Store.
