If it actually worked... I had this game on my old phone and it worked beautifully. On this phone, it only shows a black screen. On the tutorial, it shows the words on the bottom, but no screen. Sometimes I accidentally push the pause button and it shows the screen then, but when I unpause it goes black again. Fix, and it will be 5 stars

Fish, fish, and MORE FISH! This is a great game and is very addicting no matter what time it is. I literally just downloaded the game and have not put it down for over thirty minutes until my battery died on my phone. Love the game, you always want to fish deeper so you keep playing over and over again until you can get deeper and deeper! It keeps you wanting more! Would recommend to anyone.

One of the best games on android This is the first game I ever played on android, and it's still one of my favorites. Love the artistic store, music and gameplay.

Ok game, developers uninterested in fixing bugs Fun for a while, but game lags after being left alone for several months. Game developers condesending and unhelpful when bug brought to their attention. There's more fish in the sea anyway.
