Game Description
In this game players can roam freely in the beautiful open world maps and explore river, pond and lake locations in diverse environments. Dare to go deeper into the wild where no fisherman has gone before and find the biggest catches. All maps are playable both in single player and multiplayer modes.

Finding the best fishing spots by learning the depth maps and bottom topology of each location is fun, but requires patience and dedication. Nothing wins the expectation of finding the best location or catching the biggest fish from each lake.

The real excitement starts when it is time to throw fishing lines into the water and start fishing! The right equipment for right conditions are as essential as is mastering the location. The realistic fish behavior system, fish AI and fish swarms for almost 30 fish species makes this game a lifelike fishing experience. Fishing gear can be chosen from a wide selection of different jigs, rods, augers and baits. A perfect combination of equipment for different species depends on the season, but especially weather and daytime conditions. Controlling a rod and a jig in the water in a right way and at the right depth in Ice Lakes is a skill of its own. Rod and jig physics guarantees that fish react authentically to player's actions.

Fishing independently without time limits or competitors makes Ice Lakes a relaxing game to play and tune your fishing skills in the comfort of your home. On the other hand, lengthy tournaments and very customizable single competitions will test the player's skills and knowledge, but will reward them with new equipment and limitless fame.Future developmentAfter the release the development of Ice Lakes will continue and is improved based on the wishes of the community. Moreover, the game will get free content updates including more maps, game modes, fish species, equipment and more.

Ice Lakes reviews and comments

Well, what can I say ... The Game was included in a Humble bundle and I really didn't promise much of it though I like fishing Simulations in general ... Provided they are well done. Ice Lakes initially looks rather Amatorial, but over time you will discover the Qualities of this Game. The Fish seem to be at least found in realistic Places, the Bait makes Sense and you can buy quite a lot of Accessories with the In-game currency you can earn. There are many Game Modes, including Tournaments (Multi-level Competitions) as well as an Online Mode where you can squat on the Ice together with several People, see in the Chat what the others have just caught and can chat with them. The Game seems to have been created by real Fishing fans, since eg. Also noted in the Description of the Sturgeon is that it is an endangered species of animal and you should only hunt it virtually. The Fish you catch Are provided with Life-like Textures and depending on the Weight of the Catch, the Size of the Fish, which you ultimately pull from the self-drilled ice hole, also falls. I wouldn't have spent 15 Euros on this Game, but packed in the Sale or in a Bundle you can't do much wrong if you want to have a solid Fishing Simulation. I give the Game 7/10 Points and therefore a GOOD!

A really very well done Arcade-Fishing Game! I was a little surprised that such a simply structured Fishing Game can inspire me so much. The pure Game mechanics are kept very simple, so you can quickly achieve Success in the Game. The already very good Basic Equipment at the Start Of the game can be constantly improved by Participating in Tournaments. In the Competitions you can compete directly with the AI and also gain a lot of Game currency In a short Time. The fish caught can also be sold directly from the Fishmonger and thus improve your Account balance a little. All equipment Purchased Will remain in inventory even in the event of a Loss, E.g. in the event of a Crack of the Fishing Line. The Gameplay is very profound, precisely because you can compete directly with your Friends in Online mode and feel like you're in a real Competition. The Equipment can be used in hundreds of Combinations and so you can never say exactly which Fish you are going to pull ashore. Fishing On a certain Species of fish is also possible, of course only with the appropriate Equipment and also with a little By-catch-also corresponds to Reality. Game: You can hold your own in the Game in a total of 12 different Environments. With the corresponding Combinations Of Bait, more than 20 different Species of fish in a wide Variety of sizes can be disconnected. Also extremely large Specimens of every species Of fish are available, of course you just have to find them and pull them Ashore. 15 different Competitions and 16 Tournaments can be played. Before Fishing, you can adjust the Duration of The competition and also the time of day/Season if Necessary. Especially rare Fish species can also be caught here with Additional Equipment. Conclusion: Gameplay 100% and unrestricted Purchase recommendation! This Game is addictive-promised!
