Getting hooked on "Mobfish Hunter" fishing game is like shooting fish in a barrel!

Set in the year 2020, after the greedy Autocracy has stripped the world of rare Earth elements, disastrous pollution has wreaked havoc on our once-beautiful oceans. Now the worlds fish have mutated into dangerous new species known as Mobfish. To combat these vicious critters, a new class of Mobfish Hunters emerged and its up to you to rise through their ranks. Trick-out your fishing lures with a variety of projectile and melee weapons to rid the seas of Mobfish and become a champion Hunter.

Mobfish Hunter features:

Set in the Mobfish Hunter world, each zone includes its own species of Mobfish and challenging hazards.
Quarantine Zone with over 50 levels and more to come.
Nine Crazy Weapons: Spend the loot awarded for successful fishing expeditions to upgrade a variety of Sea-Mine lures with spinning blades, spread-shot projectiles and heat-seeking abilities.
60 Power-Chip variations and over 50,000 combinations of playing style.
Customizable Utilities: Plum the inky depths with three additional utilities that allow your Sea-Mine to dive deeper, move more quickly, and illuminate murky waters.
Six Leaderboards: See where you rank among Mobfish Hunters locally, regionally and all over the world.
30 Achievements: Test your hunting skills and expand your collection of rare Mobfish, as you work to complete these rewarding challenges.

I've only played 15 minutes but I can say that it's very enjoyable! It plays like Ridiculous Fishing. But there are 2 currencies and an energy system similar to Candy Crush.

I beta tested this and it is very similar to Ridiculous Fishing, like Ninja Fishing similar. But still, I'm sure plenty of people will enjoy it for what it is and as the source material is pretty awesome, so is this homage. The shoot em up elements are definitely fun and it's certainly polished and pretty.

The energy system kills this for me. The fact that they have the cheek to charge you money (was2.99 pre release) to change from 5 to 8 charges is beyond belief!!
I would be wiling to pay that to remove the energy timer all together though.
This, just like ridiculous fishing, is a game where you just want 'one more go' to try to get that little bit further. I'm not sure who thought an energy timer would be a good fit.

Such a waste.

Ah yes, I forgot about the energy system...
