A quiet day on the river fishing sounds like a load of fun, but this game manages to be about as thrilling as a real day on the river fishing. Beneath your boat pass 18 layers of various fish. With each game you're given 100 casts of the line to hook as many as you can. Some fish are fine to catch, some can be quite dangerous, and caught crabs eat away your catch. There are five levels of play which determine how close to your hook a fish must be to get caught. The language is BASIC, so are the graphics and the idea. May be okay for very young children, but there's nothing here for the serious player. Makes you wonder why 48K of memory was required. Virtually nil addictiveness and an overall CRASH rating of 39%.
