"She's a beaut"

All right... I've been wavering over if i should buy this or not for quite a while... And let me tell you what I thought of it after playing the first few hours into it...

If your wondering if you should get it then stop reading this and press the buy button now

Do it

You haven't done it yet have you >:(

Ok anyways...

Let's start with the music...
On the way down it reminds me of music from VVVVVV and on the way up... Well I feel like my family is cursed for all eternity after listening to........ That...

The art style...
It's so much better than the first game in 2010... It's very unique... And even though the "fish" don't quite always look like fish... I still enjoy it!

The humor
If you read through your phones... Twitter? It's pretty funny... And just look through your fishpedia... It's also really funny... So I like the humor

The challenging...ness?
Well it's easy at first but after awhile it gets challenging! The jelly boss thingy is very challenging! Especially if you accidentally pick up a carrier too!

So I would like to say thank you to the smart people who made this game


Simply Mesmerizing...

I don't understand why I like this game so much, it's just... Mesmerizing. If you're considering purchasing this game... REVIEW TIME!!! (YEAY!!!)
Graphics: 5 out of 5
The graphics are pitch perfect, so smooth and shiny.
Sound: 5 out of 5
The music is flat out amazing, especially in Home Waters. I do wish that there were some little fishy noises every once and a while. 🐟
Controls: 5 out of 5
These controls are a blend of tilt and tap. Perfect.
Lasting Appeal: 4 out of 5
The point of this game if to go as deep as you can without touching anything and then catching as many fish as you can on your way back up. No storyline. No challenges. Bit of a letdown. You just keep going to get that hat or that new gun. Don't get me wrong this is a dung game that you will waste hours of your life on, but it just doesn't have that... zing...
Cuteness:100 out of 5

Overall: 5 out of 5 🐟🔫


This is truly "ridiculous" I've put in 20+ hours in the game, only to now be faced with a loading screen I cannot get past. Wonderful. I even tried deleting and re-installing( which causes you to lose all data as well, mind you), but that did jack&&@$. Shame. This is a fantastic game. However, if it won't let me play it, what's the point. Vlambeer, if you're reading this, PLEASE fix this so I may give this game the 5 stars it deserves. Thanks.
