Good game - little fixes would make it even better
I have to say, I have quickly become very addicted to this game. I was looking for something to pass the time and ran across this game in the App Store. I enjoy the challenges, but it can definitely be frustrating to have to save such large amounts of coins to upgrade tackle, buildings, transportation, etc. It can be frustrating to have to gather 7k coins for a rod and then have to do it all over again for the reel. It takes a long time to earn enough coins to spread around in ways that increase your coins in the future.
I also am not a huge fan of the auto-cast. You have no control over how far you are casting or the direction in which you cast. I feel like there should also be ways to re-up some of the items you purchase, like the fish finders, instead of having to re-purchase the whole thing when it runs out. Lastly, I love fishing games, but I’m not a well-versed fisherman. It would be really helpful to have a guide that explains the differences in the rod/reel ratings, what types of fish they are good for, and which types of fish are in the different sites. Some of the challenges ask for specific fish to be caught but if you haven’t run across them on accident you have no idea where to go to find those fish.
Overall, I do really enjoy this game. Great way to kill time!
Mostly good game
This game is mostly very very good. Though the fishing element itself pales compared to some games such as fishing free it makes up for it with a nice building element. The game is not flawless however and two problems plague it.
The first problem is the massive price jump. It seems that eventually the cost of tackle goes from slow increases to a huge jump. The obvious solution other than buying money is upgrading buildings. However if your buildings are full you cannot see the prices without deleting a building or what building type slots they go into.
The second is the odd difficulty scale. I find what fish I can catch and the quests for them grows much faster than gear availability. However for buildings I find myself needing to delete them and build lower level buildings to finish quests. Given the previous issue this means not knowing how much you spend before you sell.
Great but a few fixes are needed
This game is very fun with the many locations in it around the globe. There are many fun things in the game but there are some things that could be fixed:
#1: The fact that you have stamina is annoying in my opinion. If you run out of the stamina for fishing you can't fish which is not cool. If you run out of money collecting stamina than you can't collect a some of the coins that the town buildings produce.
#2: When you level up the quests get hard too fast. I am at an ok
level in the game and I still can't bring in a white marlin or a large sailfish.
#3: The amount of coins it costs to buy gear, bait/lures, buildings, and bodies of water is to much. It takes a super long time until I can buy something new because it will be overpriced.
#4: I find it annoying that whenever a fish snaps your line your reel gets broken and then costs a ton of coins to get fixed. I don't think the reel your using should get broken every time a fish snaps your line.
