Great Games to Play on the Playstation Vita

It has been several years since the release of the Playstation Vita and it has stood out in the sea of smartphone apps and mobile games. It is a weighty, powerful gaming platform that has a collection of games worth playing on it.

Instead of mobile touchscreen tricks and gimmicks, the Vita is a handheld machine with pads, buttons, sticks, panels, multiplayer functions, and the most powerful graphical processing power on a handheld. Games on the PS4 can be streamed remotely, which can work well for the right games. You can also download and play PSP games.

Fishing Break Gameplay – Mobile Game

One type of game that is a specialty of SEGA is fishing. You will understand that statement if you have ever played the SEGA bass fishing games. Those nostalgic for those bass-centric games can rekindle some great memories with this mobile fishing game – Fishing Break.

The 2D art style aims for a cute feel – it is prototypical of a mobile game. The sprites are creatively generated with information and UI included in an easy-to-read manner. The game goes deep as is its mechanics, so you will need all the information you will need in one screen. There are also upgrades that become available as you fish your way through the game

It is a casual game, for those looking for a relaxing fishing experience on their phone. Players will cast out the line, hook the fish, catch it, and repeat. It doesn’t get much more complicated than that. You can tap on the right side of the screen to cast, then continue to tap to reel the fish in.

The fish will attempt to pull back, and you will need to stop tapping to prevent the line from breaking. Learning to balance reeling in and easing off can be a challenge at first, but also fun at the same time.
