Help three students recover their pets and save the world in this quirky cartoon adventure from Microids. As the title suggests, the game's plot spoofs the X-Files and its themes of FBI conspiracy and extraterrestrial influence. Three American college students, Dante, Korsellos, and Fritz, are given goldfish in the hope that caring for the little pets will instill a sense of responsibility. The adventure begins as the young men awaken one morning to find their finned charges missing. How could they ever suspect that the missing goldfish may be related to a secret visit from space-faring aliens?
The fact that these aliens resemble anthropomorphic fish is a clue, but players will need to guide their chosen character through 120 locations in seven different environments, speak with as many as 50 NPCs, and collect a backpack full of inventory items before this fish tale really comes together. Fish Files is presented through a "user-friendly" interface, designed to be accessible even to young gamers. 7th Sense and Microids have developed a "High Color Mode" technique designed to display up to 2000 colors on the small screen of the 8-bit handheld, allowing for rich backgrounds in the game's varied levels. ~ T.J.
