When you think about it, the essence of fishing - waiting around for hours doing nothing for a few minutes pay-off - doesn't exactly scream prime mobile game material. And yet here we are, playing the latest in a surprisingly long line of fishy mobile games.
If developer Digital Chocolate knows one thing, it's how to distil the maximum amount of fun from the most mundane subject matter. Fishing Off the Hook is a case in point.
There's no tedious waiting around here. Once a level starts and you're out in your little boat (viewed from the side, affording you a fish tank-like view of the pond-life), you just need to press and hold '5' to set a power bar moving. Releasing it at the appropriate point casts out your line.
