Game Introduction

The game has three different selectable courses to go fishing.

Game Play

Players must cast into a lake to try to catch a fish within a certain time limit. Once a fish is on the player's line, he or she must wind the reel to bring the fish in. A range meter will indicate the amount of pressure the player is applying on the reel as the fish is being reeled in. If the pressure gets too high, the reel will break and the fish will get away. Once the fish has been reeled in, points and bonus time will be awarded.

The catch can range from small to large and each player will have three chances to catch a fish. When the game is over, the score, the number of fish caught and the weights of all the catches will be evaluated to determine the player's overall performance.
