Being on vacation, you’re free to spend the time however you see fit – get up early in the morning to go deep sea fishing, participate in the many varied activities that the resort has, or just spend a lazy day touring the aquarium. As the days pass and you become more familiar with the area and hone your fishing skills, you also get a sense of the best fishing spots that the island has to offer. Do you rent a bicycle and ride to a remote location to fish for trout by a waterfall? Or perhaps test your skill and luck by kayaking deep into the jungle to see what kinds of fish await? You can even scale the top of a local mountain to enter a different climate and go ice fishing – this is your vacation, the choice is completely up to you! Fishing Resort is a fishing game that takes place on a large tropical paradise and uses the Wii Remote to mimic the action of casting and the Nunchuk for reeling. After customizing the appearance of his/her avatar, the player is free to do as they wish, whether it be checking the resort’s bulletin board for daily activities and contests, participating in any of the over 20 fishing-related mini-games, or go trolling the high seas on a charter boat in search of really big game such as giant swordfish. Despite being an island, this paradise offers lakes, streams, and even ice fishing high in the mountains in addition to the deep and shallow sea fishing that’s sure to keep the casual and hardcore fishing fans alike coming.
Accessible controls utilizing the Wii Remote as the cast and the Nunchuk as the reel makes it an easy pickup-n-play experience for the first-time fisherman, while the ramp up in difficulty on the bigger fish will challenge even the most experienced angler.
Instead of being confined to one boat, the player is free to fish wherever they encounter water on the island, whether it be by biking to a hidden lake, chartering a boat for deep sea fishing, or even scaling the local mountains to go ice fishing.
Over 20 Fishing-Related Mini-games-Trying to hit a bull’s-eye with a good cast, accurately naming the correct fish based on a picture, and competing in a kayak race are just a few of the multiple mini-games available.
4-player Multiplay and Online Leaderboards-Four players can play together to see who can catch the most fish within a given time limit, and online leaderboards allow single players to see how they stack up against others.
