5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly realised foolishness 23 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
There certainly is a lot to love in ridiculous fishing, the game mechanics are flawless, addictive and enjoyable, the geometric graphics are witty, even rather chic, and the in-game store will have you constantly striving to earn cash. I would recommend it to all, arguably it's only flaw is the considerable lack of replayability having caught all the humorous fish apart from the hope of beating your own high score.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm Addicted 26 May 2014

After playing Luftrausers on the Vita, I thought I would give it a try. I haven't put it down since. Very simple idea, but the upgrades and the drive for progression keeps me coming back for more. Thanks
