App description: Beacon 38 is a mobile exploration game where you use sonar to navigate through a dangerous, beautiful alien world that constantly surprises and challenges. See if you can navigate your tiny scout ship past massive predators, mysterious creatures, and unknown peril to escape the 38th Dimension!

Using the core mechanics of sonar pinging and navigation, you make your way through an ever changing, evocative ecosystem that must be understood to be overcome: the game consists of over a dozen sectors each with its own mechanics, creatures, and challenges.

With an art direction that blends Art Deco beauty with Lovecraftian horror and an engaging story world set in deep space, littered with lore, the thin red line between danger and safety is literally at the players fingertips. Do you have what it takes to make it out of the 38th?


Minimum Requirements:
- Iphone 5 or later
- Ipad 2 or later

Lol, because someone had to put it on the radar first. Nice find Vovin.

Looks very intriguing and so does the Lovecraft-ish art style, but exploration is the word that doesn't fit into this week great games, sounds very time consuming. Simply no time for another one. Wish-listed (almost) on top for a bad week to come.

Damn you. I was waiting for one single positive comment from anyone in this thread. Here it is and there goes my $3.

This game is gorgeous. It definately has a Lovecraftian vibe, but it also reminds me of "Sunless Sea" on PC, in terms of exploration and mystery. Very nice stuff.
Each time you die, you've maken a mistake, and if you learn from your mistake, you'll get better and better. The game is not unfair - it's mostly your fault when you die.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.
