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 NewMinor bugfixes to version 1.1 & 1.2 (& 1.2.1)

Thanks to everyone for such an amazing, amazing reception to Ridiculous Fishing. We're still a little overwhelmed by your enthusiasm, your ratings and your response to the game.
• Play your own music
• New items to be found in the store
• Maelstrom updated with new patterns and fish
• Other surprises and things to do
Whether or not Billy has redeemed himself during your Ridiculous Fishing adventure, this first minor update for the game solves a lot of small annoyances and little bugs you've shared with us. You'll be able to play your own music instead of Eirik Suhrkes magnificent soundtrack if you so insist, the game should allow you to re-equip the Swiss Lure and some little typing errors from those last days of crunching on the game have been fixed.
We've added a few new items, of which one offers an often requested feature: the knife will allow you to cut the line to instantly restart an attempt. No longer will you have to wait until the line comes all the way back up just trying to catch that one last fish. It's not for killing fish, though, it would be absurd to kill fish with knives or the like.
The most mythical of places now has a few new fish and patterns for the Eagler Award-winning anglers amongst you, including the all-new Friend Fishes hidden in the depths of the oceans. Finally, one final addition asks you not to dive into the depths, but to raise it into the skies.
With that last tidbit, we leave you to your fishing ways. We cannot thank all of you enough and we hope you rate and review, but most of all enjoy this first update for Ridiculous Fishing, while we start working on big things just beyond the horizon.
