[New Game] After Making Its Android Debut In Humble Mobile Bundle 3, Ridiculous Fishing Enters The Play Store For $2.99

The popular - and absolutely absurd - Ridiculous Fishing made its Android debut as part of the current Humble Mobile Bundle just last week, and now it's available in the Play Store. If you've been looking forward to getting your hands on this addictive, tilt-controlled, vaguely-fishing game but have no interest in the other titles offered in the bundle, this is a cheaper way to do so.

Unfortunately, since people began using KitKat, a strange bug has turned up that may randomly cause your last chosen action to be reused automatically instead of allowing you to choose something different each time.

The Humble Mobile Bundle 3 was launched last week with the debut of two big games on Android, Ridiculous Fishing and Swordigo.

Back in April, I said that BLU "is a company to keep an eye on moving forward." A few months later, I reviewed (and loved) my first BLU device: the Life Play. Since then I've also taken a look at the Life View – the company's take on a large-screened phone – which was also very impressive for the cost. I'm definitely a fan of what BLU is doing right now, and the company seems to be keeping a nice momentum with the Life series.
