Scuba / underwater games

anyone know of any cool games in these genres on iOS? Chilingo Made one a while back that could have been perfect but was plagued by iap. There is also deep loot (love it) but aside from those I don't know of any more. Maybe TA could do a piece on them? It would be cool. I've looked through the App Store but a bunch seem to be flappy bird clones. Just curious

Have you tried Ridiculous Fishing? You dont get to scuba, but you spend a lot of underwater viewing.

"Underwater" isn't a genre, unless you're referring to some specific gameplay style.

If you're just looking for underwater themed games, then I can't help but suggest Mission: Deep Sea. Intuitive but good controls, unique gameplay and a great atmosphere. Sure the game is old, but you can't get that same experience anywhere else on a mobile device.

Got a couple for ya! Well, there's Scuba Diving Dash Extreme, but not to my liking as its like a flappy game/runner. But then there's Freediving Hunter, and it's just been updated. Haven't played it for a few. Also, Spear Fishing 2 Pro. Couple of decent ones there. See what you think!
Also, I know of a few for Android also.

Gah totally forgot about this one. Thanks for the reminder. Actually it looks like that one isn't available anymore for some reason

I've enjoyed the Hungry Shark series, if that counts.

(And I LOVE the Squids series, although it's "underwater" in theme only.)
