What's up with this crazy fish game at the arcades?

Postby aster » Thu, 02 Jun 2011 7:32 pm

People with "buckets" of coins, pressing buttons in an attempt to catch virtual fish which are apparently worth a certain amount of credit. Strangely enough even elderly people are having a go at it. Is this some form of soft gambling?

"#1 app in China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand..."

Yeah, this seems like the one. :)

Holy moly, in-app purchases of up to 59.99 GBP to get extra coins?

Does it support multilayer? I have only seen 2 players on an iPad before.

With regards to the arcade version that has players - both young and old - pouring in tons of coins, can they actually win something and come out ahead?

How does the game work, credits keep disappearing with every passing second but you can gain some by catching fish?
