Rule with an Iron Fish reviews and comments

Translated by

Product received for free I would love you to give your Follow to my Mentor Page on Steam: DarkySama Gaming. Information Name: Rule with an Iron Fish Genre: Indie-Fishing Developer: Kestrel Games Publisher: Kestrel Games Release Date: August 24, 2017 Platform: STEAM Base Price: $9.99 USD-109.99 MXN Rule with an Iron Fish is fishing game where we should R The best Fisher captain ever. The game has more than 108 species of fish (in the Steam version). Fishing is quite simple, we just throw the bait, a wheel will appear, we wait for a fish to bite and then another circle will appear that we must wait for it turns green to be able to capture the fish. The smaller the green circle, the higher the Gold multiplier (up to x2). Some Fish will give us more problems than just clicking when the Circle is green, as we must enter some commands that appear on the screen (up, down, left, right) to fish. We Have at our disposal a lot of improvements that we will be able to buy with the money that we take out fishing, each improvement has exclusive bonuses like for example: higher% of money obtained by fish, to increase the amount of bait that we can carry, to capture to The fish faster and even be able to retain for longer the rare fishes (they shine in golden color). We Have 6 islands where exclusive fish live in the area but we will occupy to have obtained the plans of the boats to be able to unlock it. These plans are achieved by doing some secondary missions of the characters that inhabit the initial island. These plans occupy certain materials that we will find from time to time floating in the different areas that we explore. We Can also plant to get resources and cook dishes that will give us bonus for limited time (2 minutes) from multiplying x2 The amount of gold, experience, scare off the fish that are not rare and even summon a random rare fish from the area. We Can unlock pets that will make us company along the way and of course, also give us a bonus. There Is a mini-game where we must defeat pirate rivals to prevent them from fishing by throwing rotten fish into their reeds and even using a net to prevent the fish from approaching their boat. Final Opinion Rule with an Iron Fish is a game of fishing (a genre something rare to see in these times) but that works perfectly, we have many activities, secondary missions and variety of fish that will give us enough hours of play. The fishing is relaxing and so addictive that you will not notice the hours you have been fishing. Positive and Negative Aspects + Lots of fish species (more than 108 on Steam) + Fishing is relaxing and entertaining + lots of activities and secondary missions + simple and well-made Controls. -Some descriptions of the missions are somewhat confusing-The minigame of defeating the rivals is a bit boring If you liked/disliked my analysis would appreciate quite that the values with the buttons below.
