2. Ninja Fishing
Travel from the Tranquil Sea to Dinosaur Island to Food Paradise on a fishing adventure. Ninja Fishing is not your ordinary fishing game. But as a ninja, it shouldn’t be, right? From your boat, you cast your line and tilt your device to get the hook as deep into the water as possible while avoiding fish. Once a fish does grab your hook, tilt your device again to catch as many fish as you can as the line is reeled in.
Don’t worry, ninja moves are involved too. Those fish you caught will fly into the air and you must slash through them to earn gold for your catches. The game has over 140 fish species to collect, 90 rare treasures, and six unique islands to discover. Put on your mask and bait your hook for a fun ninja fishing challenge.
