Big Game Fishing
1199 kb



Finally you have some time off work, and now you wish to relax. As we all well know, there's no better way to relax than to go fishing, and that's exactly what you are about to do. Unfortunately, you haven't got a lot of money, so you'll need to make some on the way in order to keep financing your peaceful and enjoyable little hobby. Make sure you catch something big, so you can sell it. 

The game is a solid simulation where you need to go out on a boat, catch fish and then sell those fish upon return to a harbor. There you need to buy new equipment and especially fuel for the boat. If you're stranded somewhere, you had best send out an S.O.S. and hope somebody rescues you. The graphics in Big Game Fishing are nicely drawn, but there's very little animation (only on the boat when you see the seagulls flying and the rod twitching if you hook something). The sounds are not worth mentioning (mostly just some bleeps while lowering the line into the water). The game is therefore by no means a masterpiece, but it's still quite enjoyable. 

For all who want to play something different (not just quick shoot-'em-up games or mind-boggling puzzles) this game will be a welcome relief. I suggest you give it a try, but read the manual carefully. It's not that complicated, but without it you’ll never catch anything. 

The manual assumes you're using a joystick. The keyboard is simple to use, but just so you won't get lost: the Shift key is used instead of the joystick fire button (you won't get any effect if you keep both Shift and Up/Down pressed at the same time) so release the Up/Down key and hold Shift to lower/raise the line.

After extracting the game you should run the RUNME.EXE file.
