Editors’ Notes

Classic 8-bit style meshes with innovative and modern gameplay in this downright irresistible fishing game, nominated for a 2014 British Academy Games Award (in the Mobile & Handheld category). Epitomising great game design, it delivers a unique and twisted play experience that has us feverishly tilting, tapping and swiping to catch and blast hundreds of fish. With gorgeously raw visuals, delightful music and loads of unlockables, Ridiculous Fishing is remarkable.

iPhone X

Please full screen on iPhone X with an update. This game is one of the ones that makes you come back for that one last try. Well done on creating a game without the annoying adds and great comeback value.

This game set the bar for mobile games

So I redownloaded this game because when I first had it I wasn’t really into mobile games however I enjoyed the system of fishing-getting gold-upgrades-repeat I did begin to fear that that’s all this game was, and I’m not giving anything away here, but that bit after the credits the game changed from a regular game to a story driven game and I loved every minute of it, hell I almost cried, well done very well done, please continue to develop this game, add a new island and make the player restart progress but with different upgrades I love ridiculous fishing please don’t give up
