Flick Fishing is nothing like the real thing, and thankfully so. No fussing with tangled tackle, no long waits to get a nibble on your line, and it's not necessary to gut your catch. After all, Pocket Gamer has done it for you - Freeverse reels in another bold iPhone app that masterfully pairs quick burst of action and beautiful graphics.
What truly makes the game enjoyable, though, is the intuitive controls. Casting a line is as simple as flicking the device forward. When a fish bites, the line shakes to let you know it's time to reel in. Clockwise circles on the reel bring in the line to catch the fish. The controls are straightforward and immediately you're able to understand the basics.
