    Help me find an Old School Computer Game

    Alright, I am trying to find this game I played on the computer in elementary school back in 1996-1997, around the same time Oregon Trail was popular. The game, was basically you just picked a fish, and lived in this reef, and ate other fish. Of course, my friends and I would always pick the sharks or the barracuda and eat everything else, but I remember having a blast, and I just wanna see screenshots for nostalgia's sake. I also remember the reef had almost a grid of zones, like if you swam to the far left of the screen, you would move into a different block of the reef. It was almost like Ecco, with a lot more diversity.

    This sounds oddly like Fish Frenzy or whatever that flash game is called. I am sure that is not what you are looking for, but I do have a slight memory of the game you are talking about. Are we talking Apple II computers, that would definitely help us narrow down the search.

    Hmm.. I don't remember if they were apples or not, but I do remember we used Netscape Navigator lol

    No clue then. That's the only one I can remember. Used to play it along with "Oregon Trail" in computer class. Commodore 64 FTW!!

    Ooh.. Shadow Shark looks REAL close, used the same type of graphics, with like the reef just as photos, but you could pick more than just a shark.
