Editors’ Notes

The fishing role-playing game we never knew we needed.

Rather enjoyable experience.


Cute, low-stress fishing game. The fishing itself, while feeling a tad repetitive, is simple enough to understand while still engaging. The dialogues are humorous, and there’s many quests to keep you out and actively fishing. Replay value is limited, other than the gender reversal as you play as the twin (only after you finish the main quests in the game once, I believe). I also encountered a bug when I started playing where the first quest I was given never updated when I completed the goal. This was easily fixed by closing and refreshing the app though.
Lastly I find the rare fish a bit tedious, because there are times where it takes 30 seconds to a minute for one to appear, and other times where it’d take literally 5-10 minutes. It was a bit frustrating, especially in later game when you need to fish several of one type of rare fish and said fish never appears.

Just play and play and play!


In a world where apps are all free... until you realize they aren't because everything exists in a paywall universe where you'll have to pay for every bit of content along the way, this game is refreshing. No pay to win, no stress to be rated, no fuss. Just pure gameplay and content that all unlockable through game play. Play as much as you want, not timers here. No stress about having to spend real cash in hopes of getting that one item with a super low drop rate from some silly box which has to be bought with "gems". Just play.

The game itself is simple and fun, fish in a casual manner to unlock items and ships. Travel to new lands and find new fishes, be an awesome pirate. Or be a completionist and unlock everything!! Whatever you like.
