Looks cool in the screenies and the video, but the review that someone left already on iTunes makes the game sound pretty mediocre.

Default Game Impressions

Mission: Deep Sea thus far is a very unique gaming experience both in terms of its innovative control scheme and its refreshing deep sea setting that hasn't really been seen yet on the iPhone. Your presented with a pleasant main menu with options to delve into the games' scenario-based story, video-based instructions on how to navigate the waters on the back of a turtle, high scores for how fast you complete each scenario and a short intro showing how the use of animals and other species have been used by man over the course of history.



At the beginning of each scenario your presented with an orientation screen which pitches you the current situation and your goals that need to be achieved which are represented in orange text.



Once the mission starts your thrust into the game from the back of your scientific friend and begin scouring the waters for said objectives. In the first scenario of the game, your tasked with finding 3 floating red barrels and bumping into them to attach a device that inflates a balloon that allows them to surface up to the water.



As the missions progress, you'll be tasked with swimming behind a huge manta ray and touching its back to attach a beacon. In another, you need to explore a plane wreck at the bottom of the ocean floor in search of missiles that have fallen off the aircraft.



Although I would love to see the developers increase the draw distance or have it as an option for 3GS/3rd Gen users in a future update, it's still a very enjoyable, almost relaxing experience. It's nice to play something refreshing and set in an environment that hasn't really been used as much as I'd like and for $2.99 you can't go wrong.

A few more images to end my impressions.

Great impressions, Rylin. Thank you for them

Question: Is that a time limit I see? Does it count up or down? And if it counts down, do you fail the mission when it reaches 0?

Is there a freeplay mode where you can just swim around? (a la Endless Ocean on Wii)

So far all of the missions I've played are all on a timer of various times depending on the type of mission it is. Although a free play mode is something I hope the developers add on later pending enough feedback, it doesn't really hamper an already enjoyable game.
