I'm buying. 59p? Worth trying at that price. Opinion later.

[edit] Blimey! Got killed within a minute on my first two goes. It's hard guessing where the torpedoes are coming from when you can't use your sonar.

Ok. First impressions. This is really good. Simple, but good. It makes a nice change to have a slower paced more strategic action game.
I am on stage 4 now, and am getting into it. The one thing I have had issues with is the buttons at the bottom not responding to my taps, especially the third depth charge. And no, I am not trying to press it when it is dark/greyed out. The way I see it, the buttons light up when that command is ready to be selected. But having to press it 3 or 4 times for it to respond isn't good. Are the boat staff trainee's?

I'll take that into consideration for my first update. I may just make the buttons a little bigger so it's easier to get them.

The first few stages go rather quickly but once you get to higher levels a stage can be as much as 4 minutes. That's when things get really interesting.

Another few things of note. The very first time I played the app, I selected 'Start Fighting' and it warned me that all saved progress will be lost.
Firstly, that won't apply if it is my very first go at the game, so why have that warning message?
Secondly, the message says 'You will loose all saved progress' when it should be 'lose' not 'loose'.
Another- the 'Cancle' button should read 'Cancel'.
Finally, I can't find a way to pause the game. Surely a simple tap of the screen on anything other than the buttons should allow the game to pause, where you are then given options to adjust volume or quit, perhaps.

Haven't noticed any other issues yet. Enjoying the game other than the button issue (my friend also had the same issue with the buttons, so I know it's not just me). It's a nice idea, and different from any other apps, so well done.
