Rainbow Fish lived happily in the deep ocean, until one day, when the whale fell victim to a bad case of the hiccups and accidentally swallowed Rainbow Fish's friends. Before Rainbow Fish could do anything, the whale hiccuped again and swallowed him too. Now, Rainbow Fish is trapped inside the whale and needs help getting out. In this adventure, children will encounter interesting characters and experience challenging games - all with their favourite fish, Rainbow.

Description below from MobyGames

Rainbow Fish and the Whale is based on characters created by children's book author and illustrator Marcus Pfister in a series of picture books starring the colorful fish. Similar to another game in the series, Rainbow Fish and the Amazing Lagoon, this is a point-and-click interactive story/adventure. Rainbow Fish is unaware that his playtime is being watched happily from afar by Whale, until the day Hermit Crab comes scuttling by with the news that Whale has accidentally swallowed his friends. Before long, Rainbow Fish and Hermit Crab have followed them into the whale's belly and begun the search for each and every one. The player can select from two difficulty levels at the sign-in page, and is often presented with choices such as whether to continue with an action, or follow a given character into a quest. The choices are presented in the form of Yes-No fish; a little nodding fish and a head-shaking one, making it simple enough for younger players. Choices made lead to the final selection from two possible ways to exit Whale, allowing for two different endings.

I think we can combine IIGS_User's German copy of Rainbow Fish and the Whale with my English copy into one entry here:

This one, I also heard no sound in SheepShaver. This time, I remembered I've to tick the Sound Output Device in the 'Sound' control panel within Sheep, and sound is working again for me. Smile

Dax, thanks for the 'and' instead of the 'And', I was uncertain seeing the uppercase one in the Amazon title. Smile
