Happy Aquarium Schedules Special Anniversary Event

Happy Aquarium is celebrating its first birthday, tomorrow. Time flies in the world of social games, doesn’t it? To celebrate the milestone, developer Crowdstar is giving all players the opportunity to get an exclusive anniversary fish, but only if they log on at a specific time.

Tomorrow, September 15th, players that log in to Happy Aquarium between 10AM and 11AM PST will be awarded the exclusive anniversary fish. Crowdstar has set up an official Facebook event page for the giveaway.

We’re of the opinion that free items, no matter how they’re given away, are always a good thing. But it still seems a little strange that the free fish are only being given away for one hour, doesn’t it? I mean… it’s Crowdstar’s own anniversary celebration. Why not let players that log in all day long get their free fish?

Happy Aquarium Adds New Limited Edition Fish

Happy Aquarium developer Crowdstar added an exotic new fish today, but it is only available to players willing to buy it with premium currency.

The new Oriental Flying Gurnard is currently being offered to all players, with a price tag of $4.80, or 58 Pearls. The colorful blue and orange fish is typically found in the Indo-Pacific Oceans, according to Crowdstar’s in-game information panel.

Right now there are about 2700 copies of this special fish left.

Happy Island Adds Fashion Attractions

Happy Island developer Crowdstar seems to know that no island resort is complete without plenty of good shopping. A variety of new fashion themed shop attractions have been added to the Happy Island store. Players can now purchase Kyle’s Jewelers, Masha’s Makeovers, Holly’s Store, Club Greg 54, and Spicy Pink Bags. Besides Spicy Pink Bags, all are limited editions and will eventually sell out.

A Cocoa Experts chocolate factory was also released, with matching chocolate decorations. Resort planners with a sweet tooth can supplement the attraction with the Choco Shrooms, Cocoa Shrooms, Choco Falls, and Choco Lake decorations.

Happy Pets Introduces Shadow Pet Basket

Happy Pets developer Crowdstar introduced a new version of the tried-and-true “mystery pet” formula today, in the form of a new shy pet basket.

Players can find the basket in their main living room. To get the pet that is inside, players can make a Facebook wall post, asking for their friends’ help. Once seven friends have given their “blessing,” the players will receive one of six brand new pets. Five are all-black pets Crowdstar is calling “Shadow Pets,” and the last is an exclusive variety of Triceratops. The five Shadow Pet varieties are: Hamster, Parrot, Rabbit, Gerbil, and Ferret.

Players that don’t want to bother their friends can also pay $29.80 to automatically earn their pet.

Happy Aquarium Adds More Wizard of Oz Decorations

Happy Aquarium developer Crowdstar has released another handful of decorations themed after L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz.

New decor options include: Dorothy’s House, Ruby Slippers, The Castle in the Sky, and two members of the Lollipop Guild. Two Oz themed tank wallpapers have also been released.

Additionally, the new Toto and Good Witch tank mates have now been made limited editions. Originally these items appeared to be permanent additions to the Happy Aquarium store. But now, like the rest, they will be gone after about 5000-6000 more copies are sold.

Happy Island Adds More 1930s Items

Happy Island developer Crowdstar has been slowly and steadily adding to the game’s 1930s gangster expansion. Players now have a large collection of goombah goodies with which to decorate their island resorts.

New items include: Meatball Diner, Studio Swagger, E.S. Office, Private Detective, Genco Pawn Shop, Brick Flats, Garbage Truck, Tombstone, Canole, Coppah Car, and Gangstah Car.

Most of the items are permanent additions to the Happy Island Store, but three of the attractions (pictured below) are limited editions.

Happy Pets Introduces New Albino Pets

Happy Pets developer Crowdstar has introduced new a new Albino Siamese Cat and Doberman Dog. To purchase these pets with coins, players will first need to meet the neighbor requirements – 9 neighbors for the puppy, and 11 for the kitten. If players have enough neighbors, both pets can be purchased for 15,500 coins.

Both of these pets have made brief appearances in the past, as a mystery animal or a trapped pet. But now they are considerably easier to obtain.

Happy Aquarium Adds Wizard of Oz Items

Happy Aquarium developer Crowdstar has added a variety of fish and tank mates that follow a Wizard of Oz theme. Some of the items are permanent additions to the in-game store, while others are limited additions.

The new items are: Good Witch, Toto, Bad Witch, Flying Monkey, Cowardy Lion, Tin Man, Mini Dorothy, and Scarecrow. Only Toto and the Good Witch are permanent additions – the rest are limited editions, with about 7000 – 9000 copies left.

Their names might sound standard, but each has been given a fishy makeover, with gills, fins, scales, and plenty of other details to make them more fish-like.

Happy Pets Now Selling Random Dogs

Just like the random cats Crowdstar introduced last week, players can now purchase a randomly generated dog from the Happy Pets store. Interestingly, the random dog is quite a bit cheaper – $9.80, compared to $15 for the cat.

Every time a player clicks the “adopt” button underneat the random dog, a new dog is created with random coloring and features. Players can repeat this process as many times as they like, until a puppy is created that is to their liking.

We wouldn’t be surprised to see more random pet generators introduced in the coming weeks.

Happy Island Adds 1930s & San Francisco Items

Happy Island developer Crowdstar released what is likely to be the final handful of San Francisco themed decorations and attractions this weekend, including the ever-popular Golden Gate Bridge. A handful of 1930s mobster items have also been introduced.

The new items are: Bay Meadows, Bay Pyramid, Toll Booth Hit, Bay Bridge, Golden Gate Bridge, Smuggler’s Dock, Schemer’s Landing, and The Don’s House.

The new 1930s dock and air strip aren’t accessed from the normal Happy Island store. By clicking on the dock or air strip on any island, players can pay to switch their style.
