American Bass Challenge for Nintendo Game Boy Advance
American Bass Challenge sinks its hooks into the GBA with an offering of 20 fishing locales on five lakes, three gameplay modes, and a tackle box full of eight types of lures (spinner, swisher, minnow, rubber jig, worm, frog, crankbait, and spinnerbait). Features include more than a half dozen hook-retrieval methods for diversity in fishing styles, boat movement, water temperature fluctuations, changeable weather conditions, a depth finder, a tournament-mode livewell that holds up to five bass, and a track of record catches by weight and type of fish. Locales range from open water, marinas, and bridges to dams, rocks, reeds, and even a sunken ship.
Quick Fish mode provides randomly generated fishing spots for instant action with no need to move the boat or select a lure. Tournament mode requires catching the most total weight in bass during a specific time limit, with advancement through stages if you finish within the tournament's official prize rankings. Practice mode initially offers only a single lake, with others becoming available when unlocked in Tournament mode. Up to four players can compete head-to-head via a GBA link-cable hookup.
