trailer doesn't look particularly amazing, but the last 2 appxplore games I've played were both pretty cool so... yea, I'm trying it.

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 (wasŁ2.99 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...
