Angler is a fishing video game written by Dirk Olivier for the ZX Spectrum and published 1983 by Virgin Games.[1] The player controls a boat along the top of the screen and has 100 casts to catch as many fish as possible.


Taken from the game's instructions:

You are a fisherman out on the sea in your trusty trawler. Beneath you the sea is teeming with different layers of fish. By using your skill and judgement can you position your boat and drop your line to make the catch of a life-time?
