Reel-istic Fishing

Reel-istic Fishing

Made by ToadleyUnderControl

Sink your line to the deepest depths of the Reel-istic Sea, and return to the surface, catching any fish in your way! Unleash those fish into the air, and snipe them with your trusty harpoon!

Sell those fish to fill your ship to the brim with corals, and use those corals to purchase an assortment of upgrades and equipment from your friendly (and suspiciously fish-like) local shopkeep!

Take caution though... you're not the only unstoppable force in these waters.

"One of the few games I finished on Playdate. A lot has to be done right for that to happen." - Nino

"Probably not the fishing game you imagined when first using the crank, but definitely the fishing game your Playdate deserves!" - Orkn

"Of-fish-ially one of the best hauls you can get on Playdate for $8! Caught me hook, line and sinker but I'm not cod-plaining." - ComfyCrow

  • We think this game is appropriate for everyone. If you do not feel comfortable catching fish, then there is an option to catch fruits/vegetables instead!
  • This game uses the D-pad, A and B buttons, and the crank. Most uses of the crank have a D-pad alternative, but you will need to crank at a medium pace to paddle the boat (there is a fast travel option in the settings to override this).
