Dull & Uninspired
This app is disappointing. I have been playing Flick Fishing for a while, now, and was looking for a different fishing game. From the screenshots, this game caught my attention because of the realism. Unfortunately, that is where the realism ends. Don't get me wrong, the photo's are great, but static images only go so far. This game is minimally interactive. You cast and reel in, and that is all. When you catch a fish, the review screen has a small picture of the fish, with no information about it. You should at least include the size of the fish at a minimum. The interface seems like it was thrown together in a few hours. When developing a game, you have to have a fun factor. This game for me was not fun. John, kudos to you for having the skills it takes to get a game published in iTunes. I don't have an inkling on how to do such a thing. However, there is much room for improvement. Perhaps the good that will come out of this, is the fact that you have released it to the public, and now have a base of people who will give you an unbiased opinion of the game, versus the biased nature of your friends and family because of their loyalty to you. I have seen a lot of good suggestions here, in the reviews, that you might want to take note of. But for now, I will stick to Flick Fishing. It has more bang for the buck, so to speak...
Fish sizes are getting rounded down!
There was one complaint in here about fish sizes changing after being caught and I know what it is.
The game is actually rounding down the fish size after the game is closed (ie a 20.9 pound fish becomes 20.0 after restarting the game).
This wouldn't be such a big deal except that when this happens it also tends to downgrade the category size of the fish then too.
Huge becomes just large, large becomes medium, medium becomes small when the caught size was barely enuf to qualify for the next fish up and then gets a rounded down size This is especially annoying when you finally catch a rare huge fish and the next time you look in your bucket it isn't considered huge anymore because it's been rounded down to large.
This needs to be fixed because it is total BS to wait that long to land a huge fish and then have the size reduced after you restart the game as if you never caught a huge at all.
This is definitely a bug that the developer should fix on the next update. Make sure it works with the new OS 2.2
This game is OK, but by no means great. The pictures are nice, owing more to the photographers than the developers.
I'm convinced there are fish you can hook that are impossible to land, and I can't tell you how annoying this is. Yeah, it happens in real life sometimes, but who wants to play a game you know you can't win? When I hook a fish I can tell if the fish can be caught or not by the way I'm prompted to reel it in.
The game tells you what speed to reel. When you're reeling an appropriate speed it says, "keep reeling." However, there are times when it says reel slower and you can't possibly reel slow enough to make it say keep reeling. Also, on some hookups, the game tells you to reel faster, than slower, then faster, then slower and you can't possibly reel the proper speed so the fish gets away. This seems to happen in streaks where like a half dozen or so hookups end this way. Then it's back to hooking that are possible to land. It's very predictable and therefore VERY boring and lame.
Also, I've been catching Bluefish in freshwater locations. I'm no marine biologist, so I could be wrong, but I believe that's exclusively a saltwater species. There also seems to be way too many Talapia being caught. Talapia?! Why don't we just catch Goldfish? Lame.
Overall, I can't recommend this game. Flick Fishing 1,000,000 times better.
