Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy
Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy
After beating the fishing mini-game, it's possible to play a harder version of it by inputting a secret code in front of the Fisherman: Left, Left, Right, Right, Left, Left, Right, Right, X. This version is considerably harder and has no score limit - the game continues until the player misses 20 pounds of fish or catches a poisonous eel. This secret was found nearly 20 years after the game's release.
