The game is excellent, but something feels off.
Everytime I complete fishing sometimes an ad comes up. When I first started playing the game, it would usually happen all the time every time I started fishing, and ended fishing. But every, single time. Yes, you heard that right. Every, single TIME! I love the game mechanics though, smooth! But I don’t want the ads. The ads should show up once in a while, not all the time or sometimes. Maybe $3.99 is probably too much. You guys have to stop these advertisements. No one cares about them, and no one wants them here. I would’ve give this game 5 star rating if those ads weren’t around. Like the popular ratings on this app, they also say that ads are completely annoying. I usually exit the game because the ads show up, wishing never to come back in a few moments. Make the ads pop up once in a while. Also, your ratings on the game is 4.5! It has got to reach 5 stars. But not with those ads.. you have to remove them. As I said before, they should come once in a while and I was willingly wishing that the ads are annoying. Why would there be an advertisement in the game? You might get paid for adding them, but still, let the players of the game buy new products like money or something. This game is awesome though!
I got annoying
I was just playing this game like a normal person when it started glitching. I didn’t even know why but, I couldn’t do the fishing it got really annoying for personal reasons I won’t tell you my device, anyway I couldn’t go fishing I turned off my device it didn’t work, I closed it out it didn’t work, I even deleted it! Just so it would work. But that didn’t help🙄. So now I’m rating it a 3 stars please don’t get mad because you hate my rating. About the glitching part again, I really don’t know if it was my device or the game either way it was doing this it still is, and it’s getting on my nerves! So because I’m angry at this small point I’m giving it a small small SMALL rating. Either way I don’t know why it’s doing this it’s on my nerves and I have quite some nerves. So if you want this glitch get the game if you don’t want glitching don’t get this game. Also it was really agitating when the ads where there. Ads after fishing, ads before fishing, ads when. I got on the game! Ok may I was over exaggerating when I used and exclamation point. But I felt like it so back off. I really do hate ads. But they where their constantly over and over and over again. If it didn’t have so many ads it would have gotten at least a four star rating. Well that’s my review.👍🏽
Relaxing yet addicting game!
To make a long story short, I was introduced to this game after seeing my best friend and her cousin completely addicted to it. I was a little skeptical, but I tried it out on their phone after a brief demo of how it was played. Game play is simple- simply tap the screen and the hook will descend, leaving you nothing to do but swipe your finger across the screen to catch the fish. I have been playing this for a while now, and still find myself playing it a couple times a day. Yes, like other reviews you do see a lot of ads, mostly if you want to double your money to be able to dive deeper and earn more money while offline. While they don’t bother me too much, it’s a small price to pay rather than shelling out real money to upgrade. However, I do have a few suggestions I’d like to make to make the game a bit interesting. I’d like to go deeper, perhaps even encounter a Kraken or other big sea creatures. Maybe being able to unlock other fishing poles could help attract fish that are worth more or extremely rare. Also, maybe random things like treasure chests or a mermaid spotting would entice other player

I entirely understand that free apps need ads in order to make money, but the amount of ads popping up is taking away from the game. After I’m done fishing I’m always asked if I want to double my catch by watching an ad. 90% of the time it will still play an ad when I click no but there will not be reward which becomes frustrating. The game is very fun and addicting, but stopping every time I make a catch to watch an ad makes me want to stop playing.
I would recommend the creators to find more unique ways to include optional ad watching for boosts, and reduce the pop ups the best you can while still making money. Given a choice people will make the one you want more often, I’m more likely to watch an ad for a boost if I haven’t been previously made to watch multiple without reward.
With less interruptions in between gameplay, more people are likely to enjoy this app and recommend it to others. The current amount of ads won’t be needed to make a living off the game.
Overall the game has a beautiful design and is very addicting to play. Hopefully there can be adjustments in the future that continue to better it.
AMAZING! I MAXED OUT THE GAME!
By Freaking amazing awesome
This game is super fun, but the ads in the game really kills it. I would be caught up in playing and I just want to collect my money instead of doubling because I would have to watch a video ad. So might as well doubled the money in the first place.
The hack is to play the game with no internet if you guys don’t want ads to keep popping up. No need to spend money to remove the ad. It is a waste of money.
Another hack is... so the game allows you to get money while being offline. It is a great way to get people to come back to play the game. But since I can play offline, the game does not track the actual timing, so I go into my settings and change the date/time so I can gain money quick. Kind of ruins the purpose of the game, since you play to get more money. But I maxed out the net catch count (it’s 50 catches max), I also maxed out the meter limit (1290M max), as well as the offline earning ($8,745,696,655,291/Min max)
Giving the game 4 stars because it is a great creative game. I can see the business making in the game. Con is the game is too well hacked. I maxed out the game :/
Wait? Where’s my money?
By Norman Creek
Now, the reason I put 4 starts is because of this response—-
This game is awesome with tones of people joining everyday! But it’s just another hook on. At first when you enter the game, you are greeted to fish after some big money rewards, ads start rolling in. At first they are only at the bottom. But then it gets worse. When ever you catch a batch of fish and you collect you money an ad pops up and you haft to watch the video just to earn money that you fished for. This happens every time no matter what. So I turned off my WiFi. And I could fish peacefully without ads bothering me. But after a while you realize, that your not earning any money from each batch you grab. The game works off of ads, the only way you are making money off of fish is watching ads. You haft to watch an ad to actually get currency. If the game was not like this it would be a lot more fun. I recommend only patient people would hav fun. Or if you like ads. They only make money by ads. The game is fun when you have currency. Don’t download this game. Go play “Gangstar Vegas” by Gameloft! This game could be improved by not a lot of ads.
Fantastic game corrupted by ads
By Super smash gamer boy
Tl;dr: The game is great, but too many ads and too expensive to remove them
Every freemium game is going to have ads and microtransactions, it’s just a part of the business; many people choose not to spend money and advertisements are the only way to stay afloat, it’s understandable. However, Go Fish! takes it a little too far. In a game where play consists of short 5-6 second rounds, ads should be used sparingly due to the frequency of rounds in and average session. Every 2-3 rounds, the player is bombarded by 30-second ads. Considering the average round time and frequency between ads, the time spend playing is about equal to time spent watching ads. After my first few minutes of playing, I wanted to remove ads, so I thought I could pay an easy $.99 and resume unlimited play. However, because the advertiser blood money wasn’t enough for these devs, I would be forced to pay a comparatively ridiculous $3.99 just to play the game without being bothered by ads every 2 games. The game devs must either lessen ad frequency or lower the cost of removal, then I could wholeheartedly recommend this game.
stop with the ads!!!!
before i say what i entitled this to be about, i do want to say this is a very fun game, good mechanics, very addicting and good to play when youre bored and sitting around the house. ok, so lets address the elephant in the room- the ads. there are so many ads i just get sick of them. a lot of games can offer to double rewards and stuff like that and sometimes ill do it if i want more coins, points, etc, but if i say i dont want to watch an ad, I DONT WANT TO WATCH AN AD. seriously, it happens every time! EVERY TIME!! i know a lot of other popular reviews cover this same topic, and i could deal with it up till this point, and i had to write this. in my opinion, $3.99 is WAY too much to get rid of these things. no one wants them there unless they say they want to watch one for extra rewards!! again, i do love this game and i wish i could give it 5 stars but i cant because of the ads! youre probably sick of hearing this but you need to just make them a lot less frequent, at the least. i would still recommend the game though
I honestly kept seeing ads for this game and didn’t think I’d enjoy it, but then I decided to try it because I was bored one day and found it to be really fun. It didn’t take me too long to get every single fish (regular and special) and now I don’t know what I should do since there aren’t any more fish to collect for the trophy room. Could you please add more fish so that there’s more to be discovered?
Another thing I’d like to add it that the ads pop up way too often. I like that we can watch adds to get more fish or go deeper or increase offline earnings, but almost every time I finished a round an ad would pop up. It gets very annoying when I’m trying to collect the money I earned and can’t because an ad pops up. Please adjust this and then add more fish into the game.
Honestly, i love the game. It’s fun, entertaining, and honestly quite addicting. When i first downloaded the game, i thought i’d be uninstalling in within hours, but i kept it, and continued playing and next thing you know, i was thoroughly enjoying the game. My only complaint is the ads.. They are almost a dealbreaker for the game. I understand the purpose of ads, but I’ve played other games in the app store that do not have nearly as many pop up ads. The ads also aren’t simple pop up and close ads, they’re interactive ads that last 30+ seconds, and really takes you out of the entire gaming experience. There is an offer to pay $2.99 to have the ad free experience, but in my honest opinion; the game isn’t worth $2.99. I really hope they ease the ads just a bit! If not, I’ll unfortunately be uninstalling!
