About This Place

First started in late 2007, Kasey's Mobile Game Review (then just a regular feature of Kasey's Korner) started as a simul-post between here and IGN. Later I realized there's no reason to post it twice, when I can use the traffic on my own site. so, here we are, in 2010, and the mobile game industry has grown a bit. What do you think?

Mobile Game Review of "Fish On!" by Skyzone

This game doesn't seem to get wide circulation... No reference of it can be found on the Internet except on Verizon's own webpage! It's not even on Skyzone's website! But any way, here's a review of it.

Fish On! is a casual game that tries to give you a variety of challenges, but ends up being forced, unnatural and simply... silly.

You are Sven, master fisherman, and you are somehow... descended from the Barracuda (!). You must demonstrate your worth by completing variety of quests regarding fish, and defeat various bosses in order to reclaim your true destiny. :P (No, I did not make that up)

So what do you do? You basically use the 5 key to hit bubbles or fish, without getting in in return, by moving up and down, without running out of air, while hitting enough fish of the proper sizes. Then when you get to the boss fight, you switch into Dance Dance Revolution mode (yep, a series of up/down/left/right arrows you need to hit in proper timing). Each proper do is a "hit", otherwise a miss. You alternate between offense and defense. If you got "hit", you use up a bit of air. If you use up all the air, this fight's over.

As you beat more bosses, you get more "equipment", but the basic gameplay remains the same: hit others, avoid being hit, beat bosses. So it's basically the same game... over and over, and the switching to DDR rhythm game is dumb. All in all, casual game that's not really fishing.

Rating: 5 out of 10
