Flick Fishing is Almost as Close as It Gets


flick fishing iphoneWhen it comes to sport fishing on the iPhone and iPod touch, other applications — including the recently reviewed iFish — fall far short of Flick Fishing. In other words, if you're choosing a fishing application, you should go with this one.

Freeverse, the game makers behind apps like Burning Monkey Casino, brings their distinctive style of animation to Flick Fishing. The level of detail is amazing. You can watch the rod go back and forward, the line get tight and loose, and even the boat bob on the water. Other fishing applications don't supply these aesthetically pleasing features.

When a fish grabs on, Flick Fishing supplies two bars: one displays your tension on the line and the other shows the strength the fish has left. The heavier and stronger the fish is, the more difficult it is to balance out the two bars and successfully reel in the fish.

Flick Fishing gives you great functions in all directions.  The help and options section gives you all the things that you would need to get the application functioning the way you want it to. You can easily shut off the volume when needed. Flick Fishing also gives you the ability to change options in the game section such as the vibration toggle, your player name, bite alarm toggle, and the tutorial toggle. Flick Fishing also comes with instructions in the help and options section. This fishing app also provides you with a photo album to see what you have caught so far.

But, my favorite part of Flick Fishing by far, is the ability to have a tournament against your friend, the computer, or another person on your network.

    Freeverse makes great iPhone apps. This one also falls into the 'greatness' category

    ..tournament mode sets this app far apart from the rest. Check it out, its worth it

    This is a nice fast game for kiddies but iFishing is still widely considered the best fishing simulator for iphone. It has tournaments, a boat to drive around lakes, more realistic gameplay, take photos with you holding your fish, and a career mode. In the future it's going to be in full 3D as well.

    I think most people have tried iFish but don't know about iFishing yet, or get them confused.

    Why is the picture for the reel using a fly fishing reel? Those dev probably have never fished before. LAME!

    I have found that sometimes this app locks up and shuts down but overall fun but having to start over every few minuets is rather annoying
