The Blind Fisherman

I've been wanting to make a fishing game for a while. So hopefully this fits the bill. It's very short as there's only one fish to catch. But I sort of wanted to make this a Christmas preseent too. Enjoy!

Short, easy and a good way to practice typing. I love text based games.

Thanks for playing! Glad you liked it!

are you messing with me? is this game an attempt to mess with me?

xhunterko responds:

Maybe, maybe not. Thanks for playing!

I love Text games and this is one of them. I also like how you have to get the fish to ram into a rock to catch it.

Glad you liked it!

Text games are one of those things that if you don't do it right, there's nothing fun about it. In this case, you've got a game that really can't explain itself.
as simple as it should be it is needlessly complicated. There's nothing fun about this game, no easter eggs or any sort of adventure.
Even the classic games (Like zork) had limited fun. consider putting in simple pixel art to see what's going on (I know it's a blind fisherman but you need something more.) As a plus however, I think putting the simple instructions in like you did was a good move. Better luck next time. :)

xhunterko responds:

I was actually considering having the instructions disappear but thought, 'they didn't like that with the other one I put up'. Thanks for play though!

A fun game, but there's a little too much action going on and it was sometimes hard to keep up with.

xhunterko responds:

Sorry about that. But glad you thought it was fun! Thanks for playing!
