Sit back,  relax, and let the fattest ninja since Chris Farley aid you in the unique art of Ninja Fishing.

It's a simple addictive title that consists of four phases. First is navigating your fishing line as far down as it will go, avoiding all the fish by tilting your iPhone. Then either when you've reached the bottom or accidentally snagged a fish, your line comes up again, and now it's time to grab up to twenty five of the largest, juiciest pieces of sea life the waters near Mt. Fuji have to offer.

Once your rod reaches the surface, all the fish are flung into the air and it's time to use your ninja prowess to slice all the fish up for cold hard cash while avoiding the sticks of dynamite that somehow got tangled on your line. Your earnings can then be used to buy upgrades from the fishing store, which allows you to delve deeper, slice harder and earn greater rewards.

Your fishing escapades are accompanied by a gentle Japanese theme that helps set the mood and keep things fun. The visuals are colorful and easy on the eyes while the control is fluid enough to make any mistakes that occur fall directly at the feet of the player. Most of the game's content is earning enough money to purchase all the upgrades, but more upgrades, fish, and modes are promised by the developers in the future.

Ninja fishing is fun and addictive. Pairing the gameplay of relaxing fish avoidance with rabid slashing with the lure of purchasing more upgrades on top makes for a title where the words “just one more turn” will be voiced on more than one occasion. This title is definitely worth a look.

Hi, do you think you could review this game called "Don't Move"? Its a survival horror one. There aren't very many reviews and no gameplay demonstrations. So I was wondering if you could take a lookat it.
