|This is one of the Activision video games that is fun to play even if you don't know the rules. So go ahead! Use your Joystick Controllers. And when you're ready to find out why some fish bite and some don't, how to tell the whoppers from the lunkers and--especially--how to keep the shark from eating your catch, read these simple instructions. Good Luck!|
Game 1: You against the Activision computer fisherman.
Game 2: You against another player.
Use left Joystick Controller for fisherman on the left pier and to play against the computer (Game 1).
Use right Joystick Controller for fisherman on the right pier (Game 2).
Move your Joystick from left to right to move your pole out and back. To lower and raise your line, move the Joystick up and down.
Choose your difficulty or handicap for each player (or the computer):
* A (up) - Fish won't bite unless you get the end of your line right under his nose.
* B (down) - Fish will bite if you get the end of the line near his mouth.
(Hint: When learning FISHING DERBY, handicap the computer at A, and put your switch at B.)
There are six rows of fish. From the top down, they count as follows:
* First two rows: 2 pounds each
* Second two rows: 4 pounds each
* Bottom two rows: 6 pounds each
The big ones are down deep. Go for 'em!
First player to land 99 lbs. of those beautiful fish wins.
