Catching the fish isn’t the end of the gameplay loop in Ridiculous Fishing; instead, the act is punctuated by the player tapping the fish to blow them up with a shotgun. By making the end of this loop so monumental, yet so simple, the player ends every loop feeling as if they’ve done something momentous. It also primes them for the next round, by breaking up the actual fishing with a very different, more hectic activity.
