In this game you can fish by the help of a ship and a harpoon. You can change the position of the ship by the forward and backward key. At the same time, you can throw the harpoon using the down key. To save time, the upward key will help you to quickly pull back the harpoon. You have to aim at the fish and throw the harpoon. The more the number of fish you catch, the more money will you earn. The money you earn will be shown at the bottom left hand side of the screen. There is a specific dollar amount that you need to earn by catching the fishes. This specific dollar amount is mentioned as ‘Goal’. Once you earn the dollar amount mentioned as Goal, you will reach the next level. But you will have to hurry, as the time is ever running out. You will also see an icon of oil barrel on the upper left side of the screen to indicate the ship’s fuel. If you move the ship, the fuel keeps decreasing. Sound and music can be controlled by the S and M key. You can pause the Fishing Deluxe game by using the P key.
