Grab your fishing hook...and your gun! Cast your fishing lure and get as far down as possible. When you snag a fish, try and grab all the fish you can. When they fly to the surface, grab your gun and blow the crap out of them.

Use the mouse to move the fishing hook and use the left click to increase/decrease the speed of sinking. Aim and shoot at the fish, using the mouse.

Fun enough game, addictive, but...

Well, let me start out by saying this,

+ When I first started playing this game, the control scheme seemed awkward, but it actually fit the game quite well
+ This game has an incredible addictive factor, as Globex said in his review, it gives you that "Ok, only one more time" feeling, over, and over...
+ I really liked the pixel artwork for the fish, I wasn't big on it at first, but as I looked through the Fishopedia, a lot of the artwork was really nicely done
+ And as for the Fishopedia, it really added to the game, reading the witty comments on some fish, the tips on others
+ The upgrades were way out there, and they did make me want to keep playing

BUT, and this is why I'm reviewing this as a 6...

- When the game starts up, theres a 20 second delay for the ad, 20 seconds is about 5-10 times the amount of time it took the game to load for me, had this not been front-paged, I would have left at the sight of the ad timer. Purposely adding a delay for the ad does not make anyone want to click it...
- I felt like a large portion of this game, probably upwards of 30% of it, was just an advertisement for the sponsor website, like the button with the site watermark in the actual play area, the restricted highscores, and the restricted content, restricting parts of the game that make it fun to play is just low... Even if there was restricted content, don't show it in the shop with the regular stuff, the same shop littered with links to the sponsor site

Really, this game, which could have been a 9 or 10 based solely on how fun it actually became, has lost almost all respect from me because of the blatant advertisement being flaunted around. All this game says to me is "Give us some cash, come visit our site", and that's just not right. As a developer myself, I believe game development should always be because of the enjoyment games can bring an audience, and because they're fun to make. As far as I'm concerned, I don't believe advertisements of any kind should ever, ever, EVER, be forced on a player, it just disgusts them and ruins the fun of the game.

So now I have to say Boredcom, I'm not going to play any games sponsored by you anymore, and I certainly will not visit your site.

Entertaining

Okay, the gun is glitchy. Very glitchy. How come we have to go to bored.com in order to get the deeper fishing line? I like fishing games, but honey, you missed the mark in this one.

good, but...

the game is good, but some gameplay choices make the game more of a chore than a fun...

i would recomendo to spped up the line horizontal movement and make the hitbox to catch the fish larger... it would do wonders to this game...
