Hmm, it looks really well put together! Very nice, unlike some apps. But what is the point of the game? Is the only game play moving back and forth dropping bombs? Also, gameplay seems a little slower-paced, but im sure not everyone needs seizure-inducing graphics to have a fun time

As our first App Store release we went for simple "Classic" gameplay with a broad appeal.

Expect to see some very exciting products coming in the next few months. we have several games in production that I am not able to discuss just yet.

The Subs Fire torpedos & lay mines, also there are enemy Air-strikes that are devastating on your ship if hit.

You have a limited number of depth charges and Air-Strikes. Also you can not see the enemy without using your Sonar that requires time to recharge.

There is a decent amount of strategy involved as you need to judge where the enemy ships & torpedos will be after you use your sonar. Also you have a backup Air-Strike incase things get too hectic but Air-Strikes come in Limited Numbers.

Survival is the Key.
