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.

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

This game is really entertaining. I've wasted hours of my life trying to reach the murky depths of the ocean. It's such a simple game mechanic but brilliantly executed and I found the learning curve to be enjoyable and challenging.

It feels really good to unlock the next upgrade of catch a particularly rare fish.

No micro transactions or add that I can see, well structured with short play times that are fun each time. Realy good time filler as you can play for as short or long as you like. Oh and its skill based.

I've been waiting for this to arrive since I saw it on iPod,donkeys years ago as it looked unique and addicting AND BOY IT IS!.
You have to try and get your hook as deep as your current reel length allows avoiding fish etc and then hook em on the way back up,it doesn't sound much but it's INCREDIBLY fun in practice thanks to all the things you can upgrade on your fisherman and his boat.
When the fish get to the surface on your goal they all go whizzing into the sky above you and your fisherman has to blast them for points,kind of like clay pigeon shooting BUT WITH FISH.
It's got great and unique graphics and fun music and sound effects too and its a game that you should own 100 per cent.
Well worth the money now I'm goin back to fishing :).
