Customer Reviews

An instant classic

Not only my fav mobile game, well, ever, but also one of the most entertaining games I've played in the past couple of years. It has a certain spark that is so rarely found these days; Its simple, but effective gameplay is the key and it will have you hooked (no pun intended) till you've caught every single species there is to catch.

There lies a very retro style story under the surface and it's does add extra charm, but it's the gameplay that wins out over everything.

Visually pleasing, and boasting a soundtrack that is pretty much flawless when it comes to matching the overall tone, this game genuinely has all it could ever need. Sega bass fishing on the dreamcast just got owned! :-p

I would give it 6/5 if that we're even possible for this

Saying its good insults it it is so good that I would pay 5£ for it
This game will knock your socks off with an art style made with so much passion and programmed with so care for the player guaranteeing satisfaction

Over all the best game on the App Store and to all tricks who say they copied ninja fishing well actually it the other way around ninja fishing stole the. Concept and tried to make it a freemium money grabbing game while this was made pure with good intentions so good that they would rather make a game that satisfied us gamers than pay the bills but it has done both because of the awesomeness of the game
It plays amazing

Too easy. Too expensive.

This is an ok game but really too easy for the price. In particular the shooting part of the game is very very easy (far easier than the fishing part) and just becomes a bit pointless on later stages where you just need to swipe your finger round the screen for a couple of minutes. Dull.

The fishing part is more of a challenge, but becomes a bit 'samey' after a while. There's not enough variety to be a long-term challenge.

This is a fun game for about 1 day, then you'll likely lose interest. If you're ok paying slightly over the odds for such a short game, then give it a try!
