This game is AMAZING its one of those great games thst are usually f2p but is 100% premium. Please everyone, do this developer a favor and buy their amazing game. You will love this if you love clickers. You will love this if you love fishing games. Adventure games. RPG's. You fish your way around an island accepting quests, fishing, looks like you can craft some recipes and upgrading your equipment and boats ( apparently you have find all the various pieces needed to upgrade boats through fishing, encounters with other pirates etc) I can't wait to get the ghost ship myself this game is incredible and for three bucks no IAP I can't believe it's not blowing up the forum. It's a crime.

Absolutely loving this game!

I'm 2 to 3 hours in and completely hooked. There is so much to do, it seems impossible to get bored with this game. It is very highly polished, and has all the fun little extras you'd see in freemium title (bonus wheels, farming, the chance for extra money), but without ever having to pay. I hope this catches on because I would love to see more from this developer. If you're on the fence do yourself a favor and pick it up, I really think you'll like it, as there's something for everyone here.

I agree, this game is really captivating, especially for this price. And it's available for ipad, too, although only playable in portrait mode, as far as I can see.

The fishing itself is certainly easier than in ridiculous fishing, but still addicting and rewarding. The writing is top-notch, I'm already in love with the puns and the banter between the characters.

The rest of the game reminds me, not surprisingly, of seabeard, but on a smaller scale. Lots to unlock, leveling up your owm character, doing quests for the other pirates on your island, so yeah, a pretty nice loop of motivation and reward.

No in-apps to be found and fo this price a no-brainer if the concept sounds only vaguely interesting to you.

Only a few minutes in, but so far it's fantastic. Witty writing, awesome artwork, soothing music (though it might get repetitive after a while) and the cool gameplay. The fishing mechanics aren't overly deep (yet?) but get the job done. Lots of unlocks and upgrades and a first bit of customization with the aquarium.
