King Fishing is a bass fishing simulator developed by Hummer Technology in the early 2000s. It was exclusively released on a plug n' play system that was marketed in various countries around the world by various publishers. The version released by Excalibur explicitly credits a company named Silicon Pyramid.

Version Differences

Apollo Version:

  • Turtles swim by.
  • The HUD arrangement is different.
  • The playfield is one tile taller.
  • There's no copyright line on the title screen.
  • Some of the graphics are slightly different. Notably, the fisherman wears a hat in the Apollo version which makes him look like Terry Bogard of Fatal Fury and King of Fighters fame.

Trivia

  • This Plug n' Play was seen in Japan (Tsukuda), Russia (?), and the United States (Apollo, Excalibur Electronics).
  • King Fishing seems to have been reprogrammed slightly between the Apollo and Silicon Application releases. At this time it is unclear as to which came first.
