The worst thing about Ridiculous Fishing: A Tale of Redemption is the name. Of course it’s about fishing; we get that. But “ridiculous”? A work of art (yeah, I just called Ridiculous Fishing art) isn’t ridiculous just because it says so right there on the can.
This game could have also been called Radical Fishing, or LOL-out-loud Fishing. An even better title would have been The Three (3) Habits of Highly Effective Fishermen.
The Three (3) Habits of Highly Effective Fishermen
(01: Height phase.) Cast your rod, or descend your lure, or whatever it’s called. It will descend DOWN into the water, and continue to sink until it hooks a fish.
(02: Motion phase.) At this happy time, the lure will begin to rise UP. During this phase, you may hook as many fish as possible. There is no catch limit.
(03: Gravity phase.) When the lure breaches UP from the water’s surface, your many, many fishes will also spurt UP into the sky. You will tap, press, and grub at the screen to SHOOT THE BEJEEZUS out of the fish before Newton’s harsh mistress brings them back DOWN.
