PC version of Sega Bass Fishing free to subscribers of the gaming giant’s newsletter – all you need to do is sign up!
If you’re stuck indoors with the current horrific weather or just want a retro gaming experience that’s a bit different, Sega Bass Fishing might just be the answer.
And as it’s available for free right now, it’s worth spending a few minutes of your time on.
Sega Bass Fishing is a fishing video game developed and published by Sega in 1997. It was originally released as an arcade game for the Sega Model 3 hardware, and was later ported to the Dreamcast, Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, and PC (2011).
The game is a simulation of bass fishing, and players attempt to hook and reel in fish with different lures. The arcade version uses a Sega Fishing Controller, which features a fishing rod and reel that players can use to control the game. Of course, the various ports don’t use that special controller, instead relying on various implementations of the appropriate controllers.
Unsurprisingly, the Nintendo Wii version plays closest to the original.
