This week for Rtero Game Friday I’m back with a game that took me forever to remember the name of. It’s Legend of the River King!

Plot Synopsis: A young boy must find the elusive Guardian Fish. Only with its magical powers can he save his sister from a mysterious illness…

Plot: Yeah the plot is really barebones, but that’s to be expected from a game that literally only revolves around fish.

Gameplay: The game has two modes, Fishing mode, where you catch fish. Obviously. The second mode is raising for fish. Again really obviously.

Art: The one good about a game this old. The art has aged really well, which is about the only good thing that can be said about this game.

Overall: You can easily skip this game, it’s not anything you ought to bother playing, but I wanted to cover the game because I had such a tough time remembering it.

For those who like: Fishing, Fish, Catch Em All Games, Simulation, Good Art.

Not for those who don’t like: Any of the above.
