added the new action RPG Legend of the Skyfish 2 from Crescent Moon Games and Mother Gaia Studio on Friday. In the new game, you play as Little Red Hook, a young warrior apprentice and the last of the Red Hook guardians.
In Legend of the Skyfish 2, Little Red Hook must master the ancient art of fishing pole combat when her world comes under attack, a century after the defeat of the Skyfish. Use your fishing pole as a weapon and a grappling hook, switching between different lures to defeat enemies. Explore the world and collect materials to craft weapons and armor to complete quests.
“Using a fishing pole to solve all your problems is surely an unusual idea,” Felipe Cancian Bertozzo, game designer at Mother Gaia Studio said in a release. “Players need to approach every aspect of the game in a unique way. Whether they are in combat, solving puzzles or just moving around, players will be hooking, pulling, grappling and hacking with their fishing pole.”
