Fishing Derby review. Classic Game Room reviews FISHING DERBY for Atari 2600 from 1980. This Activision produced classic video game features two pistol capped fishermen competing for big points by fishing to the death (maybe it’s friendlier than that, but maybe not!) Fishing Derby is a cute game for a few minutes but gets old quickly and one wishes for dynamite to speed the job up. CGR Fishing Derby video review features the Activision classic Atari game, Fishing Derby, where you race to 99 points by catching fish. Fish near the surface score 2 points, the deep ones can score up to 6! Play one or two player. Fishing Derby footage from Atari 2600 Jr. shows Fishing Derby video game gameplay in HD action.
