"We still goin' fishin' this weekend?"
"Nah, Lumbergh's gonna have me come in on Saturday, I just know it."
It's unfortunate that we all can't just sit in a boat all day and fish. There's just something nice about sitting on a lake with only nature and a beer in sight. Instead, we all have to work... sometimes even on the weekends.
Working these days doesn't necessarily mean productivity though, so hop on your iPhone and pick up Field and Stream Fishing.
Field and Stream Fishing isn't your ordinary zen-like arcade fishing experience, it is a full on fishing experience brought to you by the the official magazine company. With a handful of adventure quests to go on, 13 fish species to catch, and full flick casting with twitch controls, you might just be able to make yourself believe you are on the water. You'll never be quite as cool as the guy below, but hey, there's nothing wrong with your menial desk job.
Just don't get caught at work with a beer in a coozie, that could spell bad things for your employment.
Check out some screenshots of the app after the break.
Super Happy Fun Fun has been a mobile developer for 6 years. They have recently teamed up with TiltnTwist to start releasing games for the iPhone. We got a chance to meet with Mark Pierce from Super Happy Fun Fun at WWDC to see Snowboarding TnT, a recently released, promising looking mobile port. We also talked about some other games that they have in development for the iPhone.
Snowboarding TNT is a downhill snowboarding game where you perform stunts for points - similar to the various SSX games. There are no buttons, you use the accelerometer to control the action -- both to control the board direction and do the in air tricks.
Here's a description of the game from it's press release:
Players can become a male or female ‘boarder, and can pick the language of their choice among English, Spanish, French, Italian, or German. They enjoy six downhill courses starting with Easy Street and Bunny Slope, and increasing in difficulty as they slide through Turtle Run, Quickdraw, The Chute, and Holy Moses.
The “fun factor” in Snowboarding TNT is immediate and unrelenting as gamers are required to do lots of things simultaneously – control downhill maneuvers and speed, avoid crashing into trees and smashing into huge rocks (Wipeout!), maneuver through narrow tunnels with hanging ice cycles, and slice through strategically placed course gates – while performing over 30 cool jumps and airborne tricks en route to the finish line and a mob of cheering fans.
Players gain points as they successfully complete jumps, tricks, and race against the clock. High scores can be posted on the scoreboard, encouraging friendly competitions with board buddies and family members.
Big Buck Hunter Pro
Also coming soon, but we don't know when, is the iPhone version of the hugely popular Big Buck Hunter Pro. This is the arcade game that you see in all the sports bars and sporting goods stores. The arcade game has a unique feature where you can sign up for an account and tie all of the games you play together, on any machine.
The iPhone version will allow you to play all of the fully 3D levels of the arcade game. You will also be able to tie the mobile game to your Big Buck Hunter account and track your progress on the global leader boards in both the arcade and mobile version, as well as helping you find locations nearby with the arcade game.
Big Buck Hunter Pro is expected in the third quarter this year.
