ScaryFish Version V is an exciting multi-species fishing game. Anglers will appreciate the realism, but you can enjoy the game even if you never fish in real life. The game simulates the excitement of exploring areas filled with fishing holes, choosing presentations, casting, anticipating the bite or strike of a fish, and fighting fish once they are hooked. The game has a variety of options for where you fish, mode of play, and presentation including rod and reel, line, bait/lures, and
accessories. The multi-species aspect of the game and its complicated, realistic size formulas make it extremely suspenseful; you never know what will bite your line next. You might be innocently fishing for Bluegill or Crappie when suddenly ... a huge Catfish or Gar runs off with your line! Or you might be fishing for Bass, fighting what you think is a trophy Largemouth, but when you land the fish it turns out to be a Carp! As you play the game a number of humorous mishaps might occur such as tipping the boat or catching something that isn't even a fish!
You can run this game over and over without getting tired of it. The results will be different every time you play since as in real life, luck is a factor along with skill, strategy, patience, and
reflexes. The game is almost impossible to master, but you should continually get better at locating, attracting, and landing more and bigger fish. If you purchase the full version, you can access large numbers of additional "worlds".
ScaryFish V for Windows lets users create their own "worlds". The Make Your Own Worlds Utility (MOWU) lets you create an outside world map, fishing holes, custom species, humorous mishap messages, and more. All users can create worlds. You need the full version to fish at user created worlds.
