"Fishing Is..." is a simple arcade game which I developed during the last two days. As original as I am I decided to make an Atari 2600-esque arcade game with simple controls, simple graphics and simple audio, mostly because I just didn't have the time nor resources to create anything bigger than that. Still, I wanted to give the game a somewhat original touch (and hope that it's not too similar to any of the other submissions, haven't tried many of them yet). Anyway, my goal was to create a kinda realistic fishing experience (at least compared to the simplistic presentation) which also incorporates my personal experiences I've made with fishing (which are very limited to say the least).
So just sit down, enjoy the view and the sound of the sea - but still, try to catch as many fish as possible and don't give up too soon!
