App description: What is "DIVE" ?

This is the 10th game from SummerTimeStudio, the mobile game development studio in Okinawa, Japan.
The massive open world deep-sea exploration that gives you the freedom to explore and discover while enjoying the view from your submarine.
From the multi colored tropical wild life that swims through the coral to the secrets hidden behind the beauty of the ocean, everything can be accessed from the palm of your hands.
Drift through the waters to find the treasures, ancient ruins, and run into creatures that you have never seen before.

------

1. STORY

You are a deep ocean explorer determined to discover the mysteries of the ocean.
From a place that the sun makes the waves of the ocean glisten in elegance, you will swim peacefully among the fish and observe the tropical paradise that extends into a world that gets darker and mysterious as you go deeper.
As you go further into the depths of the sea, you will find an ancient abandoned palace with a hidden door that will lead to new discovery
There will be secrets, there will be answers hidden deep within the waters.

----

2. FEATURES

The controls are very simple and easy to play.

----

Competition and battles are not the main idea of the game, so you can play the game depending on the way you feel.

----

There are seven different upgrade parts to the ship.
You can pick up and sell the treasure you find to buy the parts!
By upgrading, you will be able to withstand higher pressures, achieve higher speeds, and increase the number of treasure you can carry at once.

----

If some places look fishy try shooting a torpedo at it! Chances are, you will open up a new path for you to explore!
There could be monsters dwelling within, but luckily, torpedoes are also effective against living things.

----

The sea monsters are said to be guardians of treasures

Game Impressions


Die Hard Aquanox/Schleichfahrt Fan & Diver here so don`t take my feedback the wrong way:

At the current point the Game Control System is just a big mess. Turning around, moving forward or even something simple as aiming at a rock that is 100. times bigger then my own Submarine is pretty much more or less a freaking suicide mission.

I had expected it to be easier with the other Submarines in the Game or see any upgrade at the docks to make the Control System more smoother but there is absolute nothing and the other Submarines or faster engines makes it even worse.


This leads to the absurd situation that you will literally waste more time with actual steering your Submarine 99% forward and backwards till you finally hit the angle you need instead of starting to enjoy the Game for a single moment.

1/5

Note:

I honestly wish that any Developer finally manage to create a Submarines Game where the Control System isn`t just a big mess.

I agree with Sanuku. This is similar to a mining game where you just hunt for stuff to sell for upgrades, but controls are total crap.

Wouldve been quite addictive searching for treasures, but im struggling more in controlling my sub rather than focus on finding treasures.
