A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Even novices can be landing whoppers within minutes. An in-game tutorial and onscreen gauges keep you apprised of line length and tension. Switch from calm dock-side fishing to deep-sea boat fishing and everything in between with just a couple of taps.

Violence & Scariness

Fish are always thrown back, right after the app takes a photo for bragging rights.

Sexy Stuff

Kids can buy game extras at the Village Shop. A realistic Private Beach costs 99 cents, or buy additional types of fish or a black-jack game mode.

The nice graphics and sound effects faithfully reproduce the sights and sounds of fishing from a pier, river bank, boat, and yacht. The ocean waves almost make one queasy.
