It looks beautiful but I can't really figure out what the game play is like. Is it a one touch control game or is there more to it?

oh wow,...that's actually a great question...
Currently there is only one control scheme:
tilt your device to move left/right
tap buttons to control fishing rod and shoot lanterns...

You've raised a very valid point
I have to state that accelerometer is used to control ship somewhere in the game description

Funny,..I never thought about this
Thank you, klink! Thank you very much

Oh Mr A. It's your game? I like buying games that are made by members here. Or guys who come here to talk. I'll buy it after work! I don't like fishing but the graphics look very surreal and your here! So we can discuss

Hey anabolicMike,
correct that's my game =)

Thank you for your interest. It does look a bit surreal and idea is to first light up fishes with lanterns and then using light as a bait catch small one and use it as bait to catch bigger and bigger fish. the longer chain - the higher reward.

Every time you run level moon phase will change. If it is full moon there will be much more fishes. Next level after full moon is starfall mode where you have to avoid touching red stars and collect all orange ones
Later you can unlock starfall mode to be played any time you want

p.s. I just like calling them 'fishes'

Really?! That's the FIRST thing I thought about! Not always a fan of tilt gaming myself. I'm downloading it 'cause I love fishing, especially ocean fishing! I like to try to catch fish bigger than me, and that's a pretty hard thing to do in real life! Artwork looks great from what I've seen here, hope the game play is up to par!

Hey bigrand1!
Thank you for your kind words
I am happy you liked graphics and I hope you will enjoy playing the game as well

It may seem a bit slow paced at first, but trust me it gets better.
I've spent many many many hours polishing the controls, so hope you will find them easy to pick up. Though I have plans to add alternative controls without using the accelerometer as I understand not many people like it.

Let me know if I can be of any assistance and have a nice day!
Cheers!

Thanks for information and congratulations on the release! I'm also not a huge accelerometer fan but I can see how it could fit into a fishing game.

Hey redribbon,
First of all thank you for downloading Fishing Fantasy and a MASSIVE THANKS for recording and uploading a gameplay video.

I have watched the whole thing and it's a great joy to me seing others play
On the other hand it immediately indicated couple usability fails on my side, which I will address right away.

Quick advice #1 - be more generous with lanterns and try to chain-catch as many fishes in one go as possible. That will bring more cash and a higher chance to spawn bonus pickups.
Quick advice #2 - in starfall mode don't let any of the orange stars to sink

Thank you again for the gameplay video, it's been of great help!
