We’ve all had fantasies about treasure hunting. Pretending our bathtubs were oceans filled with vast treasures at the bottom we conjured up many fantastic stories from our imaginations. With Dive for Treasures you are entrusted with a mission. You have been tasked to retrieve the lost Mayan artifacts.

You take control of a submarine, a surprisingly easy to pilot one at that. Two steering wheels provide the ability to manipulate depth and movement around the ocean beds as you scramble around searching for treasure. Along the way you encounter pirates who are searching for the same treasure as you. Fight them off with your limited arsenal of missiles. Of course, as per games of this genre, Dive for Treasures allows players to upgrade the attributes of their submarines as the game progresses on.

Although the game is depicted in 2-dimensional cartoon, I liked how the developers placed special attention to how light plays a part. We all know that the depths of the ocean are murky and dark. Light from submarines do not flood the entire seabed with light. Instead, it has a bubble like effect that illuminates a certain radius with the clarity dissipating over distance traveled. Dive for Treasures does it best to emulate that effect.

Priced at $1.99 I am rather impressed by the kind of quality game play I got from this app. If you have two dollars to spare, I definitely recommend you to go give this a shot.
