If you think you are skillful enough to master this epic fishing simulation game, feel free to explore Hooked Inc: Fisher Tycoon and see how far you can go.
The mechanics for Hooked Inc: Fisher Tycoon is generally simple and easily manageable. This game is more than just a simulation but also features notable idle game elements. Some of the features especially the crews will work automatically without the player’s manual interaction. Generally, here’s how the game works. As soon as the game starts, it will prompt you right away to the playing area. You will initially begin with a small wooden boat and a standard fishing rod. As you start, you will be seeing moving silhouettes of fishes under the water. To catch them, simply swipe your finger on top of the silhouettes and they will be automatically transferred to your bucket.
For a clicker game, Hooked Inc: Fisher Tycoon somehow follows the standard process. You will constantly tap and swipe the screen to progress and you will also be asked to upgrade your items to make your character more efficient and more productive. The Upgrades will play crucial roles in this game not just to make your fisherman more productive but also to make him strong enough to catch the rare and epic fishes which also includes the Big one!
Navigate the Seas
Interestingly, Hooked Inc: Fisher Tycoon will not just focus on one sea. As you progress, you will get the chance to transfer from one sea to another but this is not easily obtainable. Much like the basic upgrades, you need to earn enough cash to unlock the new location. You start your journey with the Shallow Coast and followed by the Deeper Water of Green Bay which offers fishes with bigger value. As you navigate to bigger seas, you will encounter a huge variety of fishes and each of them comes with different rarities. Rare and epic fishes come in bigger value but catching them could be quite a challenge.
Players can also take advantage of the school of fishes which will arrive from time to time. This is a large group of fishes that allows you to earn bigger cash in just a short period of time. Another interesting element of Hooked Inc: Fisher Tycoon is the ability to hire crews. Each Crew has a different purpose. Some of which helps you increase your offline earnings while others will get you a bigger chance of catching better fish. There are also crews that allow you to increase the fish value while others allow you to catch fishes and earn money without clicking or swiping the screen.
Upgrades and Achievements
Like most clicker games, upgrade is the key element of Hooked Inc: Fisher Tycoon. Located below the game screen is the upgrade button which you must constantly check. The Upgrade screen is divided into three categories; Boat, Crew, and Items. Boat Upgrades will also have different categories and it all depends on the boat’s tier level. Once you upgrade your boat on a higher tier level, you will have additional categories that you can upgrade. Each upgrade has different effects such as increased fish value, faster idle fishing, increased catch chance, increased packaged value, increased chance of better fish and a whole lot more.
You can also upgrade your crews and make them more efficient. If boat upgrades will ask for virtual cash, upgrading crews will need gems which you can earn in many ways. You can obtain most gems by completing your goals or if you are lucky enough, you can earn some from Spin bonuses or through random crates and boxes that you can catch from time to time. Items, on the other hand, can be obtained from special crates. These items can be equipped and upgraded to make you more productive and effective in reaching your target goal. The game also comes with a Level Up system. Every time you earned a new level, you will also earn rubies which allows you to unlock permanent bonuses and perks.
Simple, fun and undeniably addictive. This is how you can perfectly describe Hooked Inc: Fisher Tycoon.
