Ninja Fishing Walkthrough – Part 1: Dropping Line

Posted on 10 August 2011 by Kjersti Wasiak

There are three parts to playing the iPhone game Ninja Fishing.  The first part is dropping the fishing line down as far as you can.  You want to try to get it as deep as you can because when you reach as far down as you can you try to get a treasure chest as well as catch better value fish and more total fish per drop of the line.

To get the line as deep as possible you need to tilt the iPhone left and right to avoid fish.   It is okay to go through the middle and/or tail, as they only grab on from their mouth.  You can tap the screen to activate the drill to plow through fish if needed.  You only have so much fuel (50 at start), though, so you still will need to avoid fish at least part of the way down.

When you first start your line is 75m long and you have no weight on it.  You can purchase upgrades for the line length, but if you are having trouble reaching the current maximum depth of your line you should purchase the weight upgrade before the next line upgrade.  Weight upgrades automatically drill you down so many feet (30m for first weight) without using fuel.  This is makes reaching lower depths easier.  However, it also leads to frustrating moments of suddenly catching a fish right when the auto drill ends.  Be sure to be ready to tap drill if needed right when the auto drill ends to help ease into the avoiding fishes as the drop speed returns to normal.

The available line length upgrades are 125m, 200m, 300m, 400m, 500m, 600m, and 800m.  The available weight upgrades auto drill you down to 30m, 90m, 190m, 290m, 390m, and 490m.  Fuel upgrades include increasing the max fuel to 100, 125, 150, and 200.

As you get better you might get tired of how slow the line descends, so you might want to buy the speed upgrade as soon as you get used to regular speed of descent.  The speed upgrade increases the rate of descent by 25%.

After you get a long enough line to go past 300m, you will need to watch out for mines which appear on the sides of the screen periodically below 300m.  These mines will blow your line up when going down or up and you will end up catching no fish.  You can easily avoid them by not getting close to the sides, however, it does make it slightly harder to avoid catching fish and tapping to drill becomes more important.  At this point it is a good idea to also upgrade your fuel for drilling, if you have not already.

Below 500m the sea is dark.  You can light it up with the Deap Sea Lantern.  This will brighten up most of the sea around your fishing line, but not the whole screen, which is especially apparent when you are near the edge.  Definitely a must buy upgrade, but no need to waste coins on it until after you purchase the line that goes to 600m depth.

    What do you do with the treasure chest, once you've grabbed it? We tried slicing it & tapping it…to no avail.
