Is it any good?


The fish are always biting in Flick Fishing, which makes this enthusiast app fun for kids, too. Flick your wrist to cast a line in one of six beautiful spots, and when you feel a vibration, turn the onscreen reel to hook your catch. 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.

Beast, and it might even get you insterested in real fishing.

Its not really that hardcore, but still awesome even though its only for a quick game while your waiting in line or something. Its really hard to catch fish like Blue Marlin or Swordfish, so dont get it if you have anger issues. It actually got me interested in fishing and now im landing real life whoppers.
