App description: - WHAT IS PLANET DIVER ABOUT? -
Planet Diver is about an adventurous daredevil tackling her newest obsession: Wing suit diving. With her close robotic companion Buddy she'll travel across space to seek out the most dangerous planets and their respective chasms to dive in. You'll dive through a variety of deadly and exotic planets, fighting off the flora and fauna of each locale, while collecting valuable star stuff to further fund your adventures.

Use your hard earned rewards to fly to more distant planets, as well as to acquire new outfits and special ability modifiers! Along the way you can compete online for the best dive or try to unlock rewards by completing tough challenges. Careful how deep you dive though... Who knows what slumbers within the planet's core?

- PLANET DIVER FEATURES -
- An extensive campaign made out of 3 planets, 9 biomes and 75 unique missions with a quirky story and challenges.
- Carefully crafted, randomly generated chasms that make each dive unique!
- An endless arcade mode for each planet that pushes the challenge to the limit.
- All planets have their own special biomes, obstacles, enemies and bosses!
- Fast paced gameplay where you need to avoid, brake and speed up like a pro!
- Unique obstacles and enemies like bats that follow your every move, lava that slowly cuts off your escape or a... giant whale?!
- A lot of terrifying boss fights that require fast reflexes and a sharp mind.
- A vibrant setting with a fun, quirky story to explore in the depth of space!
- A cool astro shop full of unlockables like diving suits, modifiers and music!
- Competitive leaderboards for the score junkies out there!
- Plenty of hidden easter eggs that can be found throughout the extensive planet surfaces you explore!
- NEW: A customizable dive mode, where you adjust the generation of the chasm!

- HOW DO I PLAY PLANET DIVER? -
The goal's simple, dive down while collecting all the star stuff along the way! Along the way you'll need to take the offensive or defensive to survive... This game might be easy to learn, but it is hard to master! The faster you go, the higher the star stuff multiplier. There are 75 missions to explore, and each level pushes you to new limits with specific goals you need to accomplish.

In your dives you collect star stuff, which is essential to your progress! You can spend it on outfits or modifiers that adjust your abilities! You can also spend them on star maps unlocking distant planets with new missions, obstacles, biomes and enemies!

Are you ready to tackle the vastness of space and become the raddest, intergalactic chasm diver? Yeah, of course you are! Get diving!

Really want to, it looks great and the gameplay could be fun. But the controls are too unresponsive, on an iPad. I'm pretty sure they work better on an iPhone, because if you swipe your finger has less distance to travel. The music is a bit repetitive as well.

Not that those IAPs are bad but I have to wonder if this will just flip to F2P.

Does the "grind" for coins and upgrades seem balanced?

It's a bit early to tell, but the prices for upgrades seem to be pretty high.

This game does not seem as polished as it looks in the screens. There is a lot to unlock and the currency seems pretty generous. No IAP currency either. But man the controls and gameplay and clashing graphics just make me hit my head into the wall.

Literally in game and reality.

Thanks. It does look like fun and I'll probably bite.

I keep an open mind with IAPs. But there seems to be a nasty trend lately of developing games as F2P but charging a price up front for a few weeks before going full freemium. That's a practice that I don't like to support.

Hopefully, that's not the case here.

Think I'll steer clear of this one. Looks ominously weak. Reminder to all, jmo. Hope I'm wrong but don't care for primo-freemo.
