Fun for casual and core gamers. Lots of cool stuff to unlock, the unlock progression is exactly right and there are no microtransactions. Is as much or more fun as it looks. Developed by Vlambeer (Luftrauser(s), Radical Fishing)

Awesome except for a game-limiting bug Almost perfect, except for a major bug with the swiss-made lure. If you ever try to equip the basic or chainsaw lures, the swiss lure is gone though technically still marked "equipped". After that it can't be equipped again. I just wanted to get away from the speed changes caused by the higher lures.
