Fishy Waters

Catch fish, sell 'em and upgrade your boat to explore new seas and discover increasingly exotic creatures of the sea.

You set out on your journey when the heroine's father is swallowed whole by a monstrous kraken. Determined to rescue her dad, she sets out with nothing but a scrappy old boat and a sturdy old rod.

Control the game with the arrow keys (or WASD) to move, and to reel back escaping fish. You can throw out your line with the spacebar. The rest of the game is controlled with the mouse.

1.1 A small update, fixing the following issues:
- There is now a hint to sail around to find fish, if they’re not biting in the open waters.
- The Kraken has been training and has gotten a lot tougher!
- There is now a clear ‘End’ in the final cutscene.


I loved how unique it was for a fishing game. I love them but for a while, all the games seemed the same and they were getting stale. However, I do think this game needs expanded upon; more areas and more fish. It's a pretty short game that I was able to beat in 30-45 minutes or so. However, I think the fees should be lowered and raised more gradually. I really hate to grind for gold. While I do love to buy upgrades, I felt like I was stuck in one area for too long of time, and would grow frustrated. There were also two very big frustrations at the end that I really hope you fix. 1) There was no shop in the last area, the pirate area, so I had to back track a lot and go back to Shark Bay- I think it was called- to sell my stuff every time. That quickly was annoying. There should have been a shop along side of the hut for upgrades in the pirate area. 2) The majority of my catch in that last area was Sword fish, because they were common and expensive. I rarely ran into a whale, so I mostly farmed Sword fish. However, it was extremely irritating just trying to align my book with the fish because they moved so quickly. They'd constantly move away from me, and I'd be jumping around the spaces like 10 times before I actually hooked it. I think they should be slower or just . . . not move so erratically. Anyway, that's all the criticism I have for this game. It was a fresh unique idea that I'm glad for but over all, I'm left with a feeling of frustration.

It's a good game, repetitive, but short enough so that it doesn't get too annoying. However, I think it's length is something of a detriment, as while it's doesn't get boring, it does end far too early.

That said, it's still good and decently fun. 3 1/2 stars.

A really good game with a sweet story.
Only weird thing is that whale is waaay harder to catch then the kraken.
