Fantastic concept, but a little ham fisted
This is an absolutely awesome idea for an idle game and one that i think could be done even better! My main gripes are two fold
1. You can’t get more fishermen without using the premium currency. This isn’t awful, but the other fishermen are such an essential mechanic that it kinda hurts that there’s no other way to get them
2. The ads and facebook connectivity are shoved down your throat. Yes, almost all the ads are optional, however, almost every random bonus and mission has an option for an ad boost. Again, not a deal breaker, but i’m just not a fan of having ads be such an integral part, and i assume late game it’s the only way to make the random bonuses worth it, but i’ll have to get back to you on that. Considering using my throwaway facebook account just to get a little bonus here and there
Otherwise, i adore the concept of a fishing idle game. Makes for a great aesthetic and makes for a calming little side project. I play a ton of idle games so i’m glad i came across this one, but i just wish i could like it more. Still, if you wanna pull a toy-blast-to-toon-blast and make something very similar but even more optimized for player enjoyment, i’d download that in a heartbeat! You have something great here and i wanna see more for sure <3
Playing for close to two years
Even tho I have been playing this game pretty much everyday last two years. I’m giving three stars because the game has introduced “seasons” of a type. Which is just another way to charge for that premium pass during the event as events happen all the time now. So there’s even more ways to throw away cash.
Bigger reason I’m giving three stars, Almost should do two cause of this. The game artificially starts to slow your progress with xp. The best way to get it after playing for so long is the daily login streak rewards. At some point over the last year. Getting xp from the login just doesn’t happen. It comes and goes in waves. Had not gotten any xp for last 7-10 days for entering the game and continuing my daily streak. Logged in today and finally is back. So prob will have 5-10 days of getting xp then it will disappear again. Which the only downside to this is just being able to catch the larger fish at the last few locations. If not getting xp. Your not getting that bump in damage to the epic fish when u return to the first location.
I’ve stopped playing other games that do this. Slow you down cause your progressing. And I don’t play those anymore. This is easy tho to stay with cause generally only in it for 5 minutes a day.
It’s amazing! By:kinzlie
By LOL XD RIGHT
I just downloaded this on 3/8/20 and then the next thing you know 200,000 million dollars! I couldn’t believe my eyes it’s amazing that there’s not a lot on ads and bugs on this game but it’s impossible to play when you have like 1,000 things showing on the side of your screen.i wish it could be were you could X them out so maybe add that to the game? Also anyone who plays this will think it’s kinda boring not to be rude but it just the ads are loonngg longer than a house please fix that or fix the ads and make them interesting at least make it we’re offline earnings have like just a 1 million+ if you have 3 million or if 7 million have 5 million+ so ya hope you provide for my review to be here and please fix so people can be happy and like this game a lot I’m not rude it’s just these things just make me wanna delete this game but the big fish also should be we’re it’s just a few hits like 20 hits and it’s dead this will keep kid happy and strong as if they could do anything because when the other update I hate when I was 4 it was amazing until my sis deleted it so each day I’ll revueiw and write about it hope y’all have a great day
P.s the games still amazing tho ;-;
Good game (But...)
This is a really good and fun Fish Tao game one of a kind definitely, there are a couple things I have noticed one major thing is the Earning exp u get from restarting to the beginning again , it’s supposed to increase the amount of money u make for upgrades and what not well , I have over a Billion Earning exp and every time I get to the second to last level my earn rate doesn’t increase as much as it’s supposed to or at all I feel , Over a billion maybe a Trillion warning exp and yet I’m still earning as much as I am from each fish when I had a million , I watched each time and it doesn’t seem logical that I can’t even get to decillion without leaving my game on for an hour at 4x from wheel each time , so can u please have somebody look at that .
This can be an amazing game but there needs to be more of pretty much everything maybe a new rod system or artifacts besides the fisherman u have to save up for to even recruit them . Make this game amazing and I promise u it will be a top game .
Needs gem confirmation and curve adjustment
There REALLY needs to be a confirmation on anything that costs gems, because I keep accidentally hitting buttons I didne’t mean to and spending my gems!
For example, I was saving up for a new crew member, but when I went to use a crew perk, I accidentally hit the “upgrade” button right next to it and spent 600 gems on that upgrade. That wasn’t even the first time I accidentally did that on that exact crew member.
The money curve on the last 3 fishing spots and late-game boat upgrades seems INSANE compared to previous locations. The cost jumps, like, 4 or 5 figures, which is way more than the previous curve.
Likewise, mission 48 randomlly requires an astronomical 3 million exp to complete, while the mission just before had WAY, WAY lower completion requirements. (for reference, I had less than 200,000 exp when I was given that mission)
Also, I’ve been getting a glitch where I can’t X out of an ad after it finishes (It seems to happen most often on the ads which say “thank you for watching” at the end) and so I have to restart the app which deletes all the money I was trying to multiply.
Good but could give more warning
I wanted to see how many gems I could get before I bought the Christmas thing but then I see it 00:01 and then I look through my phone to see if I just missed a notification then saw that it gave no warning that the Christmas event was going to be over which made me really mad knowing that I wouldn’t loose any gems if I bought the thing because you earn gems from the even and it only costs 600 and I would earn 4 hundred back from the event using those gems that I earned to buy the thing so I just wanted to say what I thought and that I think the game should give heads up that you can’t get something anymore in blank amount of time especially when it is something you have to wait one year to get and when it is something you have to spend a lot of time on just to make it cheaper (this review took a lot of time for me to type of since I am on Mobile and I really hope this gets noticed) I don’t expect anything for the inconvenience but I would gladly take anything that is given.(sorry for bad grammar and punctuation mistakes)
Is developing into a great game
What I love about this game is how the gem currency isn’t such a blockade. It takes a lot of adds but at least it’s possible within the day to get multiple upgrades to items and crew members threw spinning the wheel. Some descriptions of items or crew and what they do have been unclear to me and still are. I wish there was a little “Fisherman’s Manual.” Eagerly waiting for them to name the fish in the later levels, design and add more fish and levels. Add a crew member that gives you more item slots. I feel there are too many really good items that you want to be using at the same tim but can’t. Epic cards are way too rare. I got 1 from the 1050 chest with a possible of 1-4. I strongly believe with that many gems, at least 3 should be guaranteed considering people may spend money to buy these chests instead of spinning the wheel. Taking that into consideration, their store is currently overpriced. I only buy during promotions.
I like the game but one thing I don’t like is why at the beginning there’s messages to show u how to play but u can’t skip them if I already know how to play or why the boss fish make the area dark and the first boss fish is so easy after playing for half an hour and once u can instant catch it still take a while to be able to catch the other boss fish overall the game is great and it’s fun I’ve played this on many different devices but they broke so I’ve been overall playing for 75% of a year and I am not a grown up or a teenager so that’s why this game is so fun and I haven’t seen ads on this game except today and I instantly downloaded it because I forgot about this game and just came back to playing this message took me 1 and a half minutes to write I’ve been using phones a while so I’m used to typeing a lot I can write so many sentences real fast besides the point but I pressed the star on the side of my screen and pressed the ratting one I don’t useally rate games only if I really like them and when I write a review it’s long as freak
Could be way better
Overall the game is a okay with a few tweaks it could be great. For one the crew challenge is ridiculous as they are way to expensive and you don’t get to choose the person. Unless you are able to afford them when you level up it’s almost impossible to get them without spending more money then is reasonable for a game like this.
It would also be nice if there was one more slot to equip your boat with equipment. Four slots is not enough if you want to catch birds or do the traps.
As of right now I am on the second to last level and it seems like it ends there. Maybe once you get there more opens up. I will say it’s quite a lot of money between the last 2 levels and the other ones. Not sure if they realize people play these games as a way to pass the time and starting over more than 15 times to beat one level and still have to wait to accumulate more is rather annoying.
I gave this game 3 stars because without significant updates it will be something people download and delete within a few days.
Fun addictive game, but...
By Phil Folger
I honestly have enjoyed this game for the past six weeks. It is one of those addictive screen scratcher games that makes you keep coming back. Unfortunately it has had its lifespan with me six weeks in now. I have almost 8.7 Quintillion dollars and it keeps getting more ridiculous. A fish that was once worth $50 is now worth 639 billion to 2 trillion dollars in value. Just a little unrealistic... and due to the extreme goals of going from four quadrillion dollars to 20 quintillion dollars, just to move to the next ocean to fish from, i’m suddenly bored and done with this game.
A note to the creators/developers: chill out on the unrealistic values. Don’t make me lose all of my boat statuses just to claim fishing experience. Way too many ads that are the same over and over again.
A note to future players to consider: keep your fingers clean and dust free. Make sure you have a screen protector because you rub and will scratch and edge lines in your screen or screensaver by playing this game.
