Reviewed in Fun & Functional
Ridiculous fishing is exactly what it sounds like, it is a game which sees you avoid, catch and shoot fish each time you play a round. The app has a very unique design style to it and it is clear that a lot of time has gone into it, it is a very good game and has plenty of replay value due to the ability to upgrade weapons and hooks etc.

One of my most beloved mobile games. The concept includes 3 minigames: Avoiding fish while getting you hook as deep as you can, then collecting them all on your way back to the top and finally, launching them into the air and shooting the crap out of them. Combined with very cool stylized graphics and tons of unlockables it is my favourite time waster.
