Ratings and Reviews
Lots of fun!
Really like how easy it is to pick up the game (and to put it down when needed).
Love the 8 bit art style (always have).
Glad the ad watching is entirely optional, and when you do decide to, it’s not obtrusive or annoying. Just click on watching the ad and I do something else while it plays.
The only thing that I found wasn’t so clear, and I hope this helps future players if they read this, is that the little radar icon on the bottom left actually helps you finish your collections and level up! It tells you what you need to use to complete a collection. I didn’t know this and nearly deleted the game (because face it, who is going to experiment and test every single lure, hook, fisher, and bait combination to find a fish and try to level up.
Anyway, it’s a very cute and fun little game to play, and I don’t mind spending some money on it to support the devs.
Enjoyable to a point 7/10
This is one of the few games that I downloaded that can run offline and still be as enjoyable as if it were online. The game has a simple concept of fishing with interesting additions such as leveling, better items, different characters and odd items. This being said, I’ve had my fun with the game, along with the couple struggles I’ve faced. The game is great, but for the long run there are some problems that keep me from wanting to return. After playing the game for a little over 2 hours, I found that getting the rarer fish wasn’t financially helpful as the more expensive food out-priced the total sale of all 25 rare fish. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a fun game to get into if your bored and want to some time having fun fishing for unique fish/items in different locations. After a while, I thought I unlocked a character that looked like an Eskimo, but he never became unlocked. I didn’t know where to look for help on the issue, and became frustrated. Some of the GUI is messed up as well with the fish food you select not always appearing at the bottom of the screen, or the little radar button in the bottom left appearing. A simple app refresh usually fixes the issue, but it does come back up. In the future, I hope there is some updating done that I can come back to replay the game. The game has a lot of promise for being a good game in the future, and I will gladly come back if some more updating is done.

Hi Ryan, thanks a lot for the detailed review, it's really helpful knowing what players think. If you tap on your world map, and tap on the islands, you can see how many more character trade sets you need to unlock a certain character, and we can see how this is potentially confusing when you trade a set in. As for the financial side, the rare fish do payout more in the aquarium, so perhaps you can consider that. As for the GUI issues... we will have to look further into and see what's causing it. If you do have any more questions and can't find an answer, feel free to drop an email to email@example.com! Thanks for playing!!
I mean, it seems pretty fun at first, but as you play more, you have to spend more and more on bait/hooks if you want to catch the stuff, which is still annoying because each fish has a different hook speed. (Imagine playing a FPS where each life your sensitivity randomized itself, so you could never get used to controls before dying and having it randomized again, catching fish feels like that).
Then leveling up/upgrading characters is a huge pain, because you have to catch certain sets of fish, some requiring you to clear out your tiny inventory in order to hold them all, and many times, you have to catch maybe hundreds of fish in order to be able to keep buying and upgrading rods in order to be able to reach the needed depth. Especially because you need to buy tons of bait all the time, so it's really hard to save up. And once you finally catch the whole set of fish, you can trade them in for 2 skill points to split between your characters, and they barely do anything. To be honest, I'm not even sure if I can complete any of the sets I currently have to choose from because my character isn't a high enough level to use the rod he needs to fish deep enough for most of them...
There are aquariums you can put fish in to earn tiny amounts of money every few hours, but with the money I need to spend on bait, I can't make any headway on buying more tanks...

Hi, sorry you feel this way! The aquarium can actually give quite a large sum of money, if you figure out how to maximize the tank numbers and sizes (the first tank given to you can only store one fish, but you can either sell that or soon obtain a slot where you can fit different tank sizes in), as well as find fish that are rare enough. Their rank also matters. While it might seem like a initial lost of gold to buy them, they are a good investment. The inventory is designed for players to hold 2-3 sets at a time, and the game expects you to either sell those you don't need, or put them in the aquarium or on your island. You can also get free gold and basic bait if you run out of them, if you watch TVs you fish up. As for baits, if you do actually figure out the secret hook and baits required to find the fishes you need, it will cost much less, especially if you are using very rare baits. I hope these help make the game easier.
