A Reely Good Time This is everything you could want in a mobile fishing game with some fun twists. Gameplay is tight and responsive. Aesthetic is stylish and interesting, including the soundtrack. Attention to detail nearly goes overboard. Overall Ridiculous Fishing is fin-tastic.

Great game, and no microtransactions The gameplay certainly lives up to the name. The game is similar to flash games like Learn To Fly, where you are given a ridiculous task, and incrementally increase your ability to do it with equally ridiculous upgrades. This game does that spectacularly, and it is so much fun.

Very fun Basically the perfect game to pick up and play when you are just killing some time. Just wish there were an option to turn off both music and SFX in-game, as I play in public spaces a lot and don't want to worry about my phone's volume.

I like it It's a fun way to kill time when you're bored. I like that it's played in portrait mode. There's a lot more to it than I expected and is funner than I expected. I also like how the creators are against freemium games. I felt I should show them some support and I'm glad I did. Plus who doesn't like fishing with chainsaws?
