Ridiculous Fishing, Vlambeer's fishing (with guns!) game has been a long time in the works thanks to drama over a clone, but it's finally here and it's spectacular.
What's NewThis minor update brings mostly bugfixes, solving problems occurring on a small number of devices.
Thanks so much for all the support on social networks and for your enthusiasm. The messages that we've been receiving from players are heartwarming.
We'd like to remind you that Ridiculous Fishing will be getting a major content update somewhere, some day in 2014. Until then the entire team would like to wish you happy holidays and a happy new year!
