What is Fish Hunter?
Fish hunting games belong in the shoot-'em-up genre of video games, in which players try to catch various types of fish by casting nets or firing bullets at them.
While players refer to it as Fish Hunter, it has numerous variants and names, depending on the manufacturer.
Players have to buy credits from the arcade counter.
They use a joystick and buttons to point and fire a turreted gun, with each shot costing a certain amount of credits.
Players also have the option to upgrade to higher-powered shots.
These will cost more credits.
If a fish is captured, players will be rewarded with a certain amount of credits, depending on its value.
Gold creatures or "bosses" are worth a lot of credits but can take many hits to take down.
When the player stops playing, he can choose to redeem the credits for vouchers, toys or snacks at the arcade counter.
