Cute graphics! I would have liked some kind of "challenge" when I get a fish hooked. Like keeping the tension right while reeling it in or something. Good job on creating a cute fishing game in a short time. I'm a bit mad at the banker cause he took my shop ;)

Really like the graphics and the concept. But I think fishing could be more interactive. The theme is well implemented.

Nice and relaxing:) Little bug: if you place your box on bridge, walk back on the ground and walk back to bridge your fishing rod will be behind the box

Stupid monster fish caught my line again.
It's so frustrating. I am constantly transporting myself with the box. I love it. Great mechanics, could use some sound, no polishing needed.
Hours of fun!

Simple and pleasant. Beautiful and elegant game. It's missing some sounds and music though.

The best fish appear when I'm selling... it is not fair, hahahaha! Good game, I spent a while playing it. Great Job!

Tons of fun, perfect art style!

Damn monster fish...that'll show me not to look at upgrades while my line is in...

Not really sure what the point is? But I get to be Master Chief with no pants + fishing so... Cool!

They took my shop ;3;

sometimes the text overlaps. but i liked the concept.

Dec 8, 2014 @ 9:54pm

Good. Progression feels a bit slow; hard to tell what difference the first couple of upgrades are making. Charming graphics though, for a really nice aesthetic.

Some mini-game with fishing would be awesome but still very enjoyable game.

Dec 8, 2014 @ 9:54pm

Neat little game.

Dec 8, 2014 @ 9:54pm

I like your graphics, they were nice. I didn't notice there was a shop at first so I was able to buy the most expensive things at right away!

Dec 8, 2014 @ 9:57pm

Nice and chill. I liked it.

Dec 8, 2014 @ 9:57pm

I fell in love with this game. Lovely.

Nice work on the pixal art! Personaly i love that style!

What are those upgrades good for? I couldn`t figure out what they do. Also i didn`t receive the golden hook when i bought it.

Nice little game that could be a pretty good time eater (in a positive way) if you add some music and something a little bit more challenging other than just putting your hook in the water to catch those fishes.

Great little game. Well executed.

Felt a little slow and I didn't quite get whether the upgrades made any difference beyond the changed visuals.

flatgub says ...
Dec 8, 2014 @ 11:26pm

This game is adorable~~~~
Really fun and simple, all its missing is sound.
also i noticed that sometimes the screen would get this white cloudy haze over everything, I don't know if that was on purpose though...

Nice solid effort, Love the unique concept, the depth of the game is great. Music would of improved the mood of the game but great entry.

Love this game! Played it longer than I expected. Love the adaptation to the theme.

I like how we have to keep the balance between fishing to make money and actually making money. Graphics too are awesome.

Awesome game. =)

Cool game! There's little more I can say that has not been already said. Keep it up!

Cute graphics and the game was fun for a short while, but I found it a little slow.

Robber says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 2:28pm

excellent work! was a bit unclear when to sell the fish but it worked out, really cool with the rod upgrades

cyrus says ...
Dec 9, 2014 @ 2:49pm

Simple as it is, it's surprisingly addictive. Not sure what's the point of the upgrades though. I got em all, but it would be great to make money faster when using those :) All it seems to change is that you get so see new type of fish.

allurious says ...

Nice small and simple game. Unfortunately no sound.

So I have learned I should open up a fish stand, because I can make some serious cash. Well done. It has a lot of potential for further development.

GreenyUk says ...

Nice submission.I like the gameplay and simplicity of the graphics. Obviously music is missing, some nice splashing sfx for example would add a lot.

I do think it's a bit too slow-paced though. For example, when selling fish you have to wait for people to come that takes time. You could have had it so soon as you place the box down all your fish are sold. Waiting for people to buy them brings nothing, but slows you down.

Still, I did enjoy playing so good job. :)

Like the graphics, simple but elegant. Interesting ideas and depth with the upgrades, but needs something to make it a bit more fun.

Love the pixelated artwork. The game was pretty fun for a while. Some sounds would really enhance it I bet. Nice entry.

At first I was invested, but I soon realized the upgrades didn't do anything other than change some colors...

thiaguera says ...
Dec 11, 2014 @ 9:23pm

Nice. It took me a while to realize I had to satnd inside the shop. Also I missed some gameplay changing upgrades. But is very creative, well done!

Ossi says ...
Dec 12, 2014 @ 11:28pm

Really cool fishing game! I like the mechanic of picking up the box to transport it back and forth between the two usable positions. Unfortunately I picked up too many monster fish so I lost really fast haha! The upgrade system is really neat too. Well done!

Dec 13, 2014 @ 10:53am

Nice game, but the lack of sound really brought the fun down, and the upgrades were just cosmetic or I just did not notice anything that changed apart of the visuals, put in a bit polish and this game will shine! Like it anyway.

danidre14 says ...
Dec 14, 2014 @ 12:37am

WOW! Really cool game! REALLY COOL! AWESOMELY COOL!!!!!
You should really get a web version for this you know, you'd get much more views too! :D

Hey, some music and sfx would really wrap the mood of this fishing game. It would have been desirable that upgrades provided some kind of advantage or effect though, such as a bigger box, a stronger rod which could stan monster bites x1,x2...

I missed some extra negative force in the game, such as clients leaving thus letting the fish go rotten without a sale.
- Maybe being able to "travel" a bit and discover different fishes while managing oil. The rarest the fish, the more money for buying oil and bigger tanks.
- Or maybe a fishing competition?

Anyway, music could mean epic mood, go for it! Good job.

A little bit of sound would have helped tremendously, but this game has charming graphics and is fun to play.

Love it. Graphics are awesome, gameplay is awesome, it's like a little harvest moon light (just fishing). Loved it, played a ton, loved it.

Great work. Love it. =)
