It's a nice game and was pretty fun at first, but I feel like the cost of lure, lines, and repairs make it nearly impossible to save up for new rods or reels. And trying to power-up your old equipment isn't worth it since you seem to have a very slim chance of success (I lost over 100k trying to upgrade my rod to level 5 and another 50k on the reel). The game is well made but too greedy, not worth the time. [I played up to the second area, but once there I couldn't catch anything above 3 stars and was losing money catching 1 stars or getting something like a starfish or boot which are worthless. You don't earn enough to make up for any failed attempts]
Anyone know of a game like this that's a little more accessible to someone not willing to spend hundreds on IAPs? Ideally, a game you buy once and then there are no IAP.
