Ninja Fishing $.99 ---> Free

Had wanted to try this game, but had thought about waiting for the original, Ridiculous Fishing, but don't know if it's ever going to make its way to the iOS as planned. Anyone know?

I know Vlambeer was pretty upset by Ninja Fishing so I was also kind of shying away from it since they kind of screwed them. But for free maybe I'll try it since I'm not really "supporting" these devs.

Its good. You avoid fishes by tilting and once you get a fish you catch more when reeling in. Then it turns into fruit ninja, literally. Well with fishes. Its odd. Good though.

Ah, yes... I am so glad that I didn't just jump in and buy it, those many months ago.

I'm starting to wonder if this game went freemium. I mean really 90,000 coins to pay for a "time machine" to go to the second fishing area (Dinosaur Island)? It would probably take me a year to accumulate that number of coins (at the rate I'm going).

Or was it always this bad?

Hi awp69,

The Dinosaur Island is designed for the more advanced players who have spent considerable time playing the game. A lot of our players were able to accumulate more than 100k after about a couple of days of playing.

As you get deeper, the prices of the fish will get higher, plus you can also get the MBA to increase your profit by 30%.

Eventually you'll be hauling in at about 3k gold per catch at the lower depths, so we think the Time Machine is pretty attainable after you've invested some time in the game.
