ONE MORE REVIEW ABOUT ADS...
Even after reading the reviews, I downloaded to check it out. There seriously are way too many ads. It’s a fun, simple game, but I recommend playing while watching tv or something so you can ignore the ads that come up roughly every 30 seconds. Voodoo, I hope you listen to your downloaders. I’m not upset you use ads; it costs money to make a product. If you’re giving it for free, you have to get paid somehow. I know it’s a business. Please at least try to find better ways to keep your players more invested while still making money. Even having more banner ads and less play disrupting ads would be better than nothing.
To players of all games like this: we should actually be talking to the ones selling ads. Game developers don’t seem to care much about their players opinions. But if we let the ones advertising in these games know we’re either ignoring their ads, or not playing the games they advertise on altogether, maybe both parties might be interested in finding a more copacetic solution to their strategy.
Not as bad as the other reviewers say
It’s a pretty good game, keeps you hooked, (pun intended), the art style is pretty nice looking, animation is bare to minimum. I’d compare it to a pointless clicker games with some low life achievements to keep you invested. The ads are pretty constant, but honestly just turn on airplane mode. I’d suggest adding some background music, most of voodoos games don’t have any so I doubt it will get some soon, also some more little things I’d like to suggest>>
-a night mode where it makes it dark and more difficult (add some challenge?)
-less is more, there is by far too many fish.
-make a counter (you’ve caught: pointless number of virtual fish)
-add some characters, maybe a point unlock system.
-throw the whole thing out the window and make it an actual fishing game, with patience, it will have many more options (bait options, fishing pole stuff, etc)
-once more- ADD SOME CHALLENGE, the game isn’t addictive because it doesn’t have any end goal or REAL achievements.
-why add depth markers if you can’t see them anyway?
-add some better animations
-a settings button, maybe if you add music? Also a better home screen in general
It gets pretty boring to keep farming cash and coming up to click on two little buttons, add a shop icon or a little thing on the side, it would make it a lot better.
I would totally give this game more starts, but there are way to many adds. There is a constant add at the bottom of the screen. Then there is one after every time you catch fish no mater if you want to double your money so it is pointless to not double your money because they are going to make you watch the add either way. I would buy the add free version of the game but not for $3. You spend more time watching adds then you do playing the game. It is almost better to just have you off line profits high and just not play the game and come back and cast your line a few times to just pass a few minutes and then close the app and do something else because you will make more money that way then playing the game due to being forced to watch the adds. I would recommend the game makers only put the adds on the double your money option. Then this game would definitely get 4 or 5 start. You should also add some customizable features to the character and boat.
By A duck reviews
The game is a horrible copy of a great game (Ridiculous Fishing) in that game fish dropping your line avoiding the fish until you hit either the bottom of your line or floor. If you touch a fish you collect the fish as you collect all of the fish. There is no limit on how many fish you can get also. Then once they’re on the top you shoot them. In the game there is also a neat Twitter app that other characters tweet on depending on your actions. You also go to a boat store to buy new lines, “lures”, guns and hats lots of em. One you catch enough species you can go to different areas and you boat changes too. These areas offer new fish. What does this game off? No music no name (yes the character had a name) no other areas. Sure I mean it had rare, shiny, etc. but so did R F well not shiny fish. No different areas nothing at all. No story. No reason for it to be on the top 10 on the App Store go buy the much older yet better game ridiculous fishing. It’s either .99 or 1.99. Go get a better game.
good, but needs development
i have a love hate relationship with this game. there were definitely times where i felt discouraged and bored by the same, repeated, simple concept. however, i felt like i owned the world when i got to go lower into the ocean and grab that new sea creature like a boss. anyways, it taught me that patience is a virtue. so i kept playing, My primary goal being that I could plunge deeper into the ocean and grab those new types of fish. I was sadly shocked when I found out that the deepest limit is only 350 meters! How preposterous! I wanted to see deep sea creatures like dragons or waterlions or water spiders or whatever you want, but I really wanted to see it and I was disappointed when I found out that it wasn’t there. you guys need to update the game so i can plunge deeper into the ocean, as well as my dreams. thank you
No Progression, Too many ads
The game itself is a fun enough time waster. No new concepts here, but it’s fun to catch the different fish types and search for the shiny and rare versions.
But as many reviewers have stated, the ads are far too intrusive to be a game that I would play for too long. Many companies have a found a good balance between ads and playtime, and I don’t mind supporting their game by watching the ads. I play the game for a longer period and ipso facto I end up watching more ads over the life of the game than I do for the 20 minutes I play your game because there are ads every turn. Figure it out.
Also. The max depth, and fish variety is so shallow that even if the ad issue were fixed, there’s no actual reason to want to progress any furthers. No new fish, no new upgrades to depth? I don’t want to just catch more and more fish and earn more and more offline if there’s no further progression.

fun but a total waste of time!!!
By Sierra_Bae 👌😏
now look i love this game and all the most interesting part was watching how far down the fishing line went and finding new fish. the waste of time part is because i spend my time fishing for a while and collecting my money to buy more fishing line and the fishing line only goes down 350 meters. its disappointing it would be so much more fun if they did more meters down and different types of fish and if we could get more of a outcome afterwards like maybe being able to gut the fish or have a animated fish market and sell them make it something to really play for. have your avatar a little home go fishing and then when you’ve done a days work of fishing go to your market sell your fish be able to buy new products for your market buy cool new designed boats and fishing rods get employees maybe when you get to the market gut the fish for the customers do the pounds something just fun and exciting because when you get to the max 350 meters down and then the max amount of fish it just gets boring makes you want to delete the app. i dont know just some ideas for you guys hope you guys make the changes!! i really used to love the game but voodoo games in general too many ads but addicting af!
Way too many ads
All the fun that this game has gets wiped away by the constant bombardment of ads (which also slow the game down and cause lag). I get that this is a free game and it’s funded by revenue from these ads. I fully support and am in favor of that, but this takes the cake for the amount of ads you can fit it. Not only after almost every single 20 second fishing experience do you get hit with a 5 second minimum ad, but you also get them DURING the fishing cast which causes extreme lag as they try and load to your phone. I’m on an iPhone 6 Plus so it’s not THAT old. It makes it almost impossible to aim for the good fish. The developer needs to AT LEAST lose the on screen ads and maybe let us fish 5 times before you play another 5 second add. I’m close to deleting it.
The game is simple and cool, enjoyable....until the ads come. Roughly every action you complete in the game results In an ad. You caught a fish? Here’s an opportunity to double your score with an ad! Don’t wanna watch the ad? Here’s one anyway!
The game would be a lot better if they just cut the ads down by at least 30%. I understand it’s a free game and everyone needs to make money. But the amount of ads defeat the purpose of any advertisers getting anyone interested in what they’re selling. Like others have said. If you really don’t mind extremely frequent ads, play the game while watching TV or while in line, and be prepared to look away for 30 seconds every 20 seconds of the game you play. Otherwise this would be at least a four star game.
I really love this game though the prices get expensive once you start to get deeper in the game though you don’t get that much in each dive. I do get a lot of money from offline earnings but that was my opinion. Also I would like the number of ads to be reduced or create a version that you could pay to not get advertisements because every dive into the water when I come back up there is an ad, and for me it’s reducing the fun I’m having so I likely end up just playing a different game. In all the game is really addicting and I even got my friends to start playing. Thank you for reading my review!
Too many ads and etc
By Put my shades on😎
This game is so addicting!!! I love it but there are WAY too many ads. I know that’s a problem almost every game has but this game has an ad almost before EVERY gameplay. The other thing that bothers me is how far you can go, I’ve only been playing for two days and I’ve ALREADY reached the max for how meters down my fishing line goes. I would love to see an update that shows more sea creatures like octopi, squid, Great Whites, and other deep-sea creatures. It would also be amazing to see an update that includes game modes or other exciting things that would make this game even better!
By Reviewer #223879
I really like this game, and it’s fun to play on planes, etc. The one thing that bothers me is that I maxed out on length, but there are still fish I can’t reach. I think that when you max out on length, there shouldn’t be any fish below you; like if you put black below it or a sea floor. I would also like to see some new fish and hooks. There should be some really expensive hooks that are like attached to the main hook, but they only catch certain fish. This way you don’t have to worry about catching let’s say a whale, and getting a bunch of the red fish. I hope you read this and consider what I’m saying.
Pretty awesome game.
It’s a nice game, I had to pay to remove the adds because there was an add every other game you played and it was getting really annoying. It’s much more fun and easier to max your stats without any adds interrupting your gameplay. I kind of let the app run in the background and make all my cash that way and then slowly upgrade my stats. Pretty fun game, easily to play. I just wish there was music or sound effects, or maybe it’s just a bug that I can’t hear anything when I play.
Content Is Sub-Par
The game is rather simple with constantly casting out a fishing line to catch fish and make money. The game eventually reaches a point we’re early on you max out the depth in which you can cast your line limiting the fish supply you are able to catch from that is worth more cash. There are many adds, in which I personally am fine dealing with, but why this app deserves only two stars is because their are fish depicted in even this own summary page that aren’t even in the game. This fact is very frustrating because of the need for more types of fishes to be actually in the game. Within three days most people will have already deleted and forgotten about this game.
Definitely a Keeper
This is a great app. I’ve noticed the developers changed the art style, I liked the first one, but the 2nd one is so bubbly and cute! My only problem was the ads, they were extremely annoying, especially if you’re listening to music. Many of them will run over your music and won’t give you a button to mute the ad, not to mention not being able to skip it. I LOVE playing this app while listening to music though, so I just purchased the ad-free thing.

Oh my gosh I love this game!!! My favorite game by far in my phone and sooooo addicting! The only thing I will say that I don’t like is that there are a lot of adds but when you love a game like this as much as I do the adds don’t bother me that much...Hey so I’m editing my review and the new update is horrible I hate it all the fish used to look so real but now they are so cartoony and it feels like there is more adds, after all your fish come up it gives you the option to collect your fish or watch a video to double it but you have to watch a video anyway even if you just press collect your fish it’s soooo annoying! I am so not happy that thinking about deleting it off my phone 💔☹️😠
It’s a pretty fun game but when you reach maximum depth it gets kinda boring after a while. You can see that there are other fish when you reach maximum depth but since there’s no real way to achieve them it makes it kind of pointless. (I’m not trying to be rude or anything but I’m trying to make a point in what I’m about to say.)
I feel as if you updated the game to have further depth and a few new fish that it would be a much better game or just repetitively spawned the fish you can achieve and added in unlimited depth then it would make the game more enjoyable.
Tips for newbies
By potential cust
First of all, ads are an issue for most but not for me. I bypassed it by turning off my WiFi/data so I can play it entirely offline without any ads (but losing the chance to double the amount of money gained).
Second, I beat the game within 1 day. I was playing like a total newb until I decided to go passive. By passive, I mean by maxing out your $$/minute and changing your time/date settings to whatever your liking. Make sure it successfully saves the time/date and then go to the app, collect money gained, repeat the time/date change going forward only. (NOTE: once you set it to a future time/date, you could still reset it to your current time but won’t gain any passive money from it up to the furthest time that you’ve inputted. Just make sure to change back to your current time/date on your phone setting after using this technique.)
Use all your resources gained and upgrade your length and strength of the line. (SPOILER: max depth is 477m where you meet the lochness monster.)
It's not often I review, but I feel like the devs need to understand that this is far too many ads. I gave this two stars because it is actually a very fun game for how simple it is, but I would give it zero stars if I could because of the amount of advertising that interrupts the game. I would take a constant banner ad that changes over this. It seems every two casts there is an ad. Absolutely ridiculous. Bad on you Voodoo. I understand a game takes money to make, and for free there's no real room to complain but other free games have made tons of money on less obtrusive advertising. Please consider following suit.
Gets boring very quick
Once you hit the max depth, you just upgrade the offline earnings and amount of the same fish you can catch each time. With how many ads pop up even if you don’t choose to double your earnings, the amount you from the fish is nowhere near how much you make from offline earnings. It becomes a routine of opening the app, receiving a bunch of currency, upgrading the amount of fish and offline earnings again, and then trying to fish only to realize you make nothing from that so you just repeat that process every couple of hours. There needs to be more content in the app
Latest update as of 6/20
I enjoyed this game so much I paid to have no ads, but with this latest update - dragging the hook back and forth now lags so I can’t catch the fish I want. I didn’t have his problem before :/ please look into fixing if you can. The only other thing about this update is I hit the previous max depth, and while I’m glad it has extended - I’m not making as much money for the fish I’m catching. Which is frustrating, but I understand.
ADS N’ LAG
First and foremost an awesome game great way to pass time. My two biggest complaints are the shear number of ads and LAG. Can’t fully enjoy the game when you have an ad every other cast. The fact that you have to pay 3 bucks to get rid of them on every VOODOO game is ridiculous, I wouldn’t mind 1 buck or something like that but come on, stop being greedy. The second complaint is the LAG I just started playing and have only upgraded a little bit think depth is 200m and fish is 18 but holy crap does it lag. To the point of not even being able to play the game.
Ways to remove the ad
If you are annoyed by the ads, simply turn on the airplane mode when you play and all the ads will be gone.
Also, If you ever gets impatient about grinding money, you can set system time one hour ahead and you immediately gets the offline money. This can be done repeatedly of course to generate infinite money for you.
Thank me later
