Runs better on Internet Explorer.

YouTube Gameplay -

Help the fisherman to catch his food and not starve, but be careful because he has only a bait.

Initially, his line is short, so take only what it can handle. Look at the silhouette of the fish of the respective phase.

Fish have a hierarchy that can not be broken then to catch a bitter fish, you need to use a smaller bait, but not so small.

Beware of the fish with red eyes!
They are not good for eating and can spoil your lunch.

Just one more thing.
Take care not to break his line when it is red, to do this, relieve the tension giving rope to the fish.

To Move: use Arrows of the keyboard.
If you can, download the windows version, it has a better performance, and now go fishing!

It is true alvarop :/
Unfortunately it runs a little slow on some navigators, but on the Windows version it runs smooth, you can try it if you want, to see the mistery that lies beneath the sea :)

Looks great, and the gameplay certainly works. Theme's a bit of a stretch.

@okmmjyygv thanks had a lot of work trying to make a simple and coloured visual, but keeping it appealing.

@TobiasNL Nice that you like the sound of water! Thanks :D!

@joppiesaus Yes we tried to polish the most we could, because in the past we had made some games don't giving the amount of attention to things like a help, to say to the player what he need to do and a menu too, so this time give proper attention to this kind of things.

@PEBKAC thanks, one of the things that we focused on this game was to make a gradual difficulty to it, so it starts easy and gets harder.

Thanks @occash!

Best name ever.
I really like the 'evolving' bait twist! Maybe you could even do away with informing the player, the 'order' of attraction?

Great artwork too! You should be proud!

thanks @OriginalBigDan.

Nice you liked the name :D
We thought about putting the silhouette of the next fish on the hud, but then we decided to just let this order on the select stage screen, Thanks once again.

It was amazing fishing a whale from my small boat :D
Nice job on the evolving background, and all the animals are great.

Nice game. I liked the graphics as well as the audio.
The game is very well polished. Good job.

Dec 17, 2013 @ 5:15pm

I like the art style!

Simple and fun. pretty innovative too. Amazing how far one bait can actually get you, fits the theme really well.

Only criticism is that the sound was a little off. would have been nice to have some sound cues for catching a fish, achieving goals etc. Also using the sound of running water doesn't really work for a game that is set underwater. Some music might have worked better.

"thanks had a lot of work trying to make a simple and coloured visual, but keeping it appealing."

You mean copying the style of Vlambeer's Ridiculous Fishing verbatim? I wouldn't try to claim you came up with the style, especially when copying a game that's been notoriously ripped off in the past.

Gameplay is obviously influenced by ridiculous fishing but not too much, which is good! It's a nice twist on the formula, the line tension adds a lot to it. Well done guys!

@Colapsydo that was the idea, fishing giant fishs in a little boat :D

@Mekuri Thanks, we tryed to polish the most we could.

@evilindiegames Thanks!

@skysthelimit yes everything is possible in games, even fishing a whale with a little bait :D
And yes, maybe we could have added some more feedback when acomplishing things, thanks for the tip.

@BrothersT yes, you are right, it was our inspiration, their game it's a máster piece and being compared it it's na honor

Clean graphics and fun gameplay. Great work!

Dec 17, 2013 @ 6:46pm

Good job! Liked the art, very harmonic! I just missed a music theme, water sounds are too much calm D: The gameplay works very well. Congrats!

Nice game. It took me a great while to get started though because the color change on the bait button was too subtle.

I loved it!
Beatiful and simple!
My biggest complain is that, at least with the web version, the standalone I'll test later, as deep you go, the game becomes slower, and slower. Could play just up to the orca.
Other this technical problem, great job guys!
Congratz! :)

Cool game with pretty graphics! Discovering new types of fish was very enjoyable, and the last one was really huge. However, I didn't manage to get this monster out.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
