TGT - Fishing Craze

[Post New]by Poodlebear on Apr 14, 09 1:10 AM
Sorry, fishies, not gonna even download this one. From screen shots timed fishing game where you have to click at a cetain time to catch stuff. Dislike this sort of game and am not going to play.

...but considering now after 1:00 fishcity time and no one has posted abt this... *anyone* playing it?

Not me, Poodle. Waste of bandwidth for me. Ditto to what you said. Why bother? Last week was feast, but this week looks like famine so far.

This game was released last year. Or is it 2 years? On RA
So this is an old game.

Well, the grandkids like this kind of game, but we already own two or three just like it (fishing - goldmining). So I'll pass too.

The timer isn't really the problem with this game. Yes it is almost two years old. I made the purchase and tried to play it when it first came out, but, there were and still are way too many predators that will keep you from reaching the goal of the tournament later on in the game. During the amateur circuit you will be able to place first in almost all of the tournaments. When you get to the pro circuit though you'll be playing the tournaments until the batteries in your mouse die and you still won't make any headway. The elite circuit, if you ever get there which nine out of ten people won't, you can't make it past the first few rounds of a tournament. The predators, the flying head swallowing fish, the whale that shoots you in the air, the shark that grabs your line and rips you to the other side of the screen, the pelicans that swallow more fish than you can pull from the water,the electric eels that shock the hell out of you until the timer almost runs out, all of them show up with too much frequency and take way too much of your precious fishing time. This is another one of those cases where the game needs to be fixed or forgotten. I think that Alawar had like a seventy five percent return rate on this game by the time they took it off their site.

I bought this game from RA about 2 years ago because I really like Goldmine and Finders Keepers but this was not the same game at all. Too different I never play it but I play Goldmine and Finders Keepers at lease twice a week and my grandkids are always playing them when they are here.
Fishing Craze has too much going on in a very short time to get anywhere its very fast moving, not for me either.

I just finished playing the free demo, and enjoyed the game, in spite of the old graphics. I actually tried to buy it, but got a message that the game is no longer available for purchase.
Came here to read comments, and after reading am glad I didn't purchase, but why in the world would BFG put a a TGT that no one can buy? Ridiculous.

wow thats crazy lol I noticed on the download page that there wasnt an option to buy it, only to trial it, which I did. I actually enjoyed it but after reading this:

I wont even try to buy it (not that I could, evidently). i only played on the amateur circuit and those critters already annoyed the hell out of me. Oh well!

I'll pass... I don't really care for fishing in real life, and I don't aspire to be like the Old Man in the Sea

Weird - I wonder why it was pulled from buying but left for demo.

I don't know, maybe they figured out, not too many were going to buy it... Or maybe it's a glitch

Must have been a glitch, 'cause now it (the buy button) is back.
