Great Fun!

This game is stupidfun. you sit in a boat, dodging the fish until you either hit the bottom, hit a fish or your line runs out. Then you try and hit as many fish before your line surfaces. Then you commit piscine genocide with a variety of guns, of which you get paid to do. Perhaps you are being paid by the Aquatic Life Voluntary Extinction Movement. You use this money to buy longer lines, more powerful guns or oil for your chainsaw lure. All in all, some stupidfun to while away a few minutes.

Great game

I played this game about a year ago and it’s good that apple is putting it up on the front page and more people can enjoy the game

clazmate ,

broken on Max size screens

use to love playing this game, but it is clearly not optimised for the 11pro max or any max size in general. it’s a bit unfair i paid $5 for this and i can’t play the game. can’t access the shop either. please fix!!!
