Ridiculous Fishing is a fishing video game developed by Vlambeer and is available for Android and iOS devices. In this game you will play the role of Billy, a fisherman, who is looking for redemption from his very dubious past by catching the most exotic fish species ever seen and then blowing them away with his good old gun.
The gameplay mechanics of this app can be described as three different mini games in one. First you have to cast the fishing line and avoid fish as the hook descends, then catch fish by retrieving the lure, and finally shoot them when they are in the air to earn money. Although it is a simple premise, you will have to improve your lures and guns so you can catch and destroy more fish at a time. One of the best things about this app is that once you get it, it has no micro transactions. Even aesthetic item can be purchased using in-game currency and there are no tempters for real money purchases, making it even more enjoyable.
Take the Bait
You will have to cast your fishing line to start playing Ridiculous Fishing. To do this correctly you have to tilt your device in order to avoid the fish as your hook sinks into the sea. Avoid penalties by not hitting any fish as your hook sinks, and then the first stage of your fishing exploits ends as the hook then begins to ascend. Now you have to tilt your device for the opposite thing: you must catch all the fish you can before the hook reaches the surface. Finally, Billy will launch the fish into the air, and you will have to tap the screen in order to shoot them all out of the sky. Also, don't think your work is free: every destroyed fish will reward you with money based on its size and rarity.

Additionally, you can visit the shop after every capture to improve your equipment or buy new lures. You can extend your reel so the hook can go deeper, get new guns to destroy bigger fish before they fall into water again or upgrade your lure to sink faster. Besides this, you can purchase some “Tech” items such as a toaster that will electrocute the first fish you touch, or Antigravity, which will make fish fall slower when you launch them in to the air. Lastly you can buy some aesthetic items such as hats and outfits that will not have much impact on the gameplay, although some of them will give you little perks like the ability to sell fish for additional money.
