First off, this is a cute game like the fishing pole games where you try to lift fish out of a board using a magnetic fishing pole. The fish are cute and the game play works, although at times it is not as responsive as I would expect. I also like the idea of playing with two people on one screen. However, this is not easy if your screen is only about 7 inches (Kindle Fire). The concept is good, but it is hard to make it work with two people sharing the screen. I larger tablet might make this aspect of the game easier.

My greatest concern, though, is that the game is really designed for little kids. (I was bored after less than 5 minutes). It is an easy touch the fish concept. However, the game wants to sync to Facebook in order to compare scores. This is a BIG NEGATIVE for me.

1) Kids can't have Facebook accounts until they are 14, so why ask for a kid's Facebook account to challenge other kids?
2) Little kids won't understand the idea of challenging other kids so they don't need this feature any way. -If you want to argue this idea, fine. However, I'm thinking of preschoolers here.
3) Facebook accounts have a LOT of data in some (depending on how much you are willing to post). Connecting this app to your Facebook account could potentially open you up to identity concerns. Why? For a preschool game? This makes NO SENSE!
4)There are no really awful permissions, so it appears to be a safe app, but this connection to Facebook is a hidden permission since, once you allow it, you are allowing the exchange of your Facebook info. I HATE the idea of this in a game for little kids.

If you avoid connecting to Facebook, the game does play, so without the connection to Facebook, I recommend the game. It is fun for little kids and is cute. However, I deducted two stars for the "Facebook permissions" that are completely unnecessary. It leads me to believe there will be an update later requesting permissions to other info on your tablet/phone.

M. Duphorne "Mom of 4" has an excellent post regarding the Facebook aspect of this game. She's absolutely right, and I'm not going to cover the same ground. My issue with this game is the adware and spying capabilities. Please let her know how helpful her review is! :)

This game contains, according to Addons Detector, the following spyware and adware:

- AdKnowledge
- InMobi
- Inneractive
- Flurry Analytics
- OpenFeint (dead, thankfully)
- Corona SDK (bundles spying and advertising modules in SDK)
- Facebook SDK (Facebook Integration - BYPASSES SECURITY!)
- Zong SDK (includes In-App Purchasing [IAP] modules)

All the developer needs to do is to turn on the various pieces of spyware, adware, and in-app purchasing modules. Since this app already gets your phone number and Amazon account details, it is easy to see the risk for having these on your device, especially in an app *targeting young children*!

I played this with the internet turned off (firewalled, actually) and it works just fine. However, you are hammered HARD to give this app your Facebook login information! It feels the game is trying to force you to give your Facebook login info to the developers. NO THANKS!

SUMMARY: *PASS*

This is a preschool children's game that has open Facebook permissions. This is invasive, ridiculous and nothing more than an attempt to mine data from a parents Facebook account (since young children aren't even allowed based on FB TOS).
If you can get past that- even though it will ask you countless times to connect even if you don't have Facebook- which just makes it annoying and forces the kid to get 'stuck' in the game, thereby whining at shoving a device at you to get rid of the intrusion.

The game itself is adorable- it's a magnetic fishing game like at a carnival,- except you don't need to bring a half dead golfdish home with you. The controls are easy on a touch screen fire and the graphics are cool as heck.

Without the Facebook issue, I'd let my 5 year old sister play this game as much as she wanted- until it's gone she won't be playing at all.

This game is full of everything that you want to keep your children away from. Several other reviewers have listed all of the spyware, data collection and adware software used in the app. In addition it constantly bugs you to post your new high score on Facebook. It even asks you to log in and see your Facebook friends scores. Why is this type of garbage in a child's app in the first place. This type of game is targeted at children and not adults or even teens.

The game is cute and it plays like the magnetic fishing game it is copied off of but it is really fast even for me to play. It suggests that multiple people can play the game to increase the enjoyment but on a Kindle Fire that would be very tough.

This is not something I would give to a child to play and I have already deleted it from my Kindle Fire.

I hate companies that use kids games for nefarious reasons. They prey on kids and parents are Tue ones that have to pick up the pieces. Having any spyware or adware is bad enough but on a paid app. No way. I don't care if this was the best game in the world. You deserve one star.

This app is bad all around. I had a game like this when i was little, and i loved it. This app is a very bad electronic version of it. The tutorial tells you what the lights mean but not colors to catch. In case you're wondering in 1 player mode dont catch red or green and in 2 player mode dont catch black or blue. Works good on kindle but too hard for the age range. Only options are sound and 1 - 2 player mode. Other buttons are exit and scores, which are on facebook. Bad for free total rip-off if paid. DO NOT BUY EVER
