The new Rapala Pro Bass Fishing App for iPhone and iPad, by Activision, has been making a huge splash on the portable screen.
For a limited time, you can now download the hot new iOS version for only $1.99! Visit the iTunes App Store to download a copy today. This limited time offer will expire on 11/18/10.
Critics are calling it the finest of the fishing video game crop.
“Rapala Pro Bass Fishing,” writes Peter Lettieri for TouchArcade, “has addressed the criticisms of similar games that have come before it, and ensured a wide variety of locations that are completely explorable in your trusty speedboat... expect to be in for the long haul, as this is one heavy tackle box of goodies.”
The scenery rocks, the immersion factor rocks, the graphics rock, the realism is right there where you can touch it, and the featured gear is authentic.
Go head to head with top Rapala pros in big-time televised tournaments, complete with commentary from the likes of In-Fisherman’s Barry Breuland, or head out on the water for a more relaxing day by choosing free fishing mode. The iPad version lets you challenge a friend in two-way competition for neighborhood bragging rights.
No matter which way you play, “this is the first time thrilling tournament style fishing has come to the iPhone and iPad,” says David Oxford of Activision Publishing. “There have been plenty of fishing games released on the App Store, but nothing comes close to Rapala Pro Bass Fishing.”
Fully integrated motion controls let you feel smooth casts, the impact when a fish strikes, and the weight of the battle against more than 20 species. After the final weigh-ins, top scores can be posted to Facebook.
“Rapala Pro Bass Fishing is quite the catch,” says reviewer Anthony Severino for PlayStationLifeStyle.net. “It’s everything you want in a fishing game.”
The iOS version is not just an app, but a full-blown video game, notes early player Dooley Whopper on the iTunes Preview page. “Prob the best made game ever for the iPad,” he writes in classic gamer lingo. “They utilize almost everything u can do with ur iPad playing a game. Worth way more than the price. Even if u don’t like fishing u would see how great this game is made.”
