I'm not much into iOS games anymore, as it seems like I just don't have the time I'd like to put into three-staring every Angry Birds level like I used to. So the fact that I paid $2.99 for an iOS game is remarkable in its own right.
Thankfully, it was worth the price of admission.
The game lives up to its name. It is straight up ridiculous. The object is simple: drop your hook as far down into the ocean as possible before you bump into a fish, causing your hook to be quickly reeled up to the surface, at which time you try hit every fish possible on the way up to your boat. Once to the surface, all the fish go flying in the air, allowing you to pull out your firearm of choice and blast them all to score points, which are used to buy upgrades.
I don't know if it's the pretty graphics or the addictive style of game play, but Ridiculous Fishing is awesomely addictive. And I'm glad I believed the hype and tries out this game.
As good as it is, though, it's not even in the same ballpark as Disneyland's firework show. Now that is Ridiculously Awesome.
