Thanks to Cocoto Fishing Master for the Wii, fishing has never been such fun:

  • Discover 5 enchanted lakes in 5 different worlds from Cocoto’s universe.
  • Confront gigantic bosses to collect each fragment of the statuette that will allow you to awake the great king Geo from his slumber.
  • Meet Cocoto’s friends: sell your fish to Baggy and buy new fishing equipment from Neuro’s shop.

Game Review

Is this fish a keeper, or should it be thrown back in the water?

The Cocoto “franchise” is a strange one. After cluttering game aisles everywhere with rather generic sounding titles like Kart Racer, Platform Jumper and Tennis Master, the series has come to WiiWare with a bizarre take on virtual fishing. Developed...

EU WiiWare Update: Block Breaker Deluxe and Cocoto Fishing Master

You’ll have to forgive us but there’s a tangible feeling of déjà vu in the air here at WiiWare World, because this week’s releases happen to be the exact same ones North America was graced only a few short days ago.

That’s right – European Wii owners can indulge in some fantasy-fishing with Cocoto Fishing Master or bust some blocks with Block Breaker Deluxe. Or both! Cocoto Fishing..

USA WiiWare Update: Block Breaker Deluxe and Cocoto Fishing Master

North America’s WiiWare catalogue has been swelled by two new releases today.

The first is Block Breaker Deluxe, which retails for 800 points and is an enhanced version of an old mobile phone game. But don’t let that put you off – by all accounts the title is jolly good fun. As always, our review will follow shortly after we’ve play tested it to destruction. The second game is a rather more..

ditto on that...fishing games are more exciting than real fishing but...why don't you just play games that happen to have it in them like Zelda or Wii Play?



Bensei said:

For those who only want a cheap fishing game this would be a steal.
Also I wouldn't really call Wii Play a proper fishing game (put rod in and drag it out, nothing to put on the hook and no Nun-chuck drawbck action either )



Ian_Daemon said:

So I guess they were play-testing on a PS2? That doesn't give me much hope for the controls being decent...at all.



thewiirocks said:

This is a PS2 game with a horrific sounding plot that was (for some odd reason) ported to WiiWare. The plot is this: Only 5 magical fish know the secret to why the magic whirlpool is filling up with lava. So you must ahem "fish the world" to find these fish. Frightened yet?

307 blocks for a game that is a PS2 port of a rubbish game? Pass, i could get some more Hanabi festival 2 games for 700 points.



Demonic_St33V said:

Honestly, this game has me curious...... Would still like to see a review before buying, but at only 700 points, may go ahead and snag it sooner.

Seriously, $7? I spend more than that just for lunch each day! But then I'm in the perfect demographic for WiiWare..... More money than sense.



Ian_Daemon said:

@ thewiirocks: Actually, gameplay footage of the PS2 game doesn't look horrible. I'll wait for the review here, but the odd/stylized graphics look much better in motion that they do in screenshots.



Demonic_St33V said:

I caved and snagged it..... It's challenging (though I'd tipped back a few pints before playing it) and can be frustrating until you get the hang of it, but honestly..... I like it.

Decent game, I'd give it an 83 on a 100 point scale.



Decus_Q said:

i bought the game and i think 700 points is perfectly reasonable for this game. don't let the cute looks fool you, the game is quite innovative and challenging. it uses the wii motes and nunchuks capabilities quite well. The first time i played this i was lost, then as i gradually learned how to play i began to grow to like it with each fish i caught on this mini fishing adventure. So for fishing enthusiasts i recomend it, and for anyone who likes cute creatures and challenges try it out, worth the points.



mr_niceguy said:

I like fishing, but honestly, I have no interest in this game, and the art style creeps me the heck out. I'll just go ahead and say NO to this little game, thank you very much.

3.5/5 Broken Wii-motes on the frustration meter
Not horrible, but you'll swear it's broken. Took a long time to get "setting the hook" to work. I got this because my son likes to fish but he gave up after the first 20 minutes of trying to get the hook set.

Cost: 700 Worth: 600



Nintendork said:

^ Chuckles silently Wow, those guys actually linked to a WWW page criticizing the game. I never thought I'd see a developer with a bigger ego than Data Design Interactive.

I love the fishing game, but there is not many in the market. Cocoto is a funny character. The boss in the game is also decent. ohhhh, At only 700 points, this game is really worth. Don't be fastidious!
