Gone Fishing From Tsunami

Here’s my first post and let me start by saying that I am quite excited to be a part of the best arcade related blog out there. I’m not just saying that either, since I found out about Arcade Heroes I have visited it everyday since many other gaming sites out there don’t seem to get it when it comes to arcades. Check out my profile for an idea of my history with arcades.

I’ll use this post to bring attention to a little know arcade game that may interest people that enjoy hitting flying fish with bats. Gone Fishing claims to be the number one restaurant and bar arcade game that places you in the paws of a polar bear catching fish by smacking them with a bat. You then see how far you can get the fish from your position.

While this seems reminiscent to flash based games like Bowman or Penguin Launcher, at least it offers a type of game that would certainly work well at the bar.It probably won’t find it’s way into many standalone arcades but if you ever are stopping by Chuck E. Cheese’s, check it out and let us know if it’s worth trying out.

    Actually, believe it or not, they have two of these Gone Fishing games at my local Dave & Buster’s! This game is so random (a polar bear whacking fish with a bat? Yeah.) that I love it. And I set an apparently unbeatable record on one of them because when I went back the other night, my record was still there. Oh, how proud I am! I am the ultimate fish-whacking polar bear! ;oD
