Description

Diver Dash is a fast-paced scrolling arcade game where you avoid sharks and mines on your endless descent to the ocean floor. Press the screen to stop the obstacles and dash through the gaps. Compete with your Game Center friends and collect coins to unlock all the wacky characters and themes. What are you waiting for? Dive in today!

History

We had an idea for a one-touch game where instead of controlling the player you controlled the obstacles. We spent a morning making a prototype using simple shapes and put a link up for some friends to try out (see 'Square vs Triangles' below). They loved it, so we decided to flesh it out with some different art styles and themes. As part of the experimentation we flipped the camera 180 degrees so instead of scrolling up it was scrolling down - and Diver Dash was born!

Features

  • Portrait mode one-touch controls (so it looks like you are doing something important like email, instead of playing a game)
  • 20+ Characters/themes to unlock
  • Wacky character voices and sound effects
  • Voxel graphics
  • Earn score multipliers for long dashes
  • Bonus coins and gifts
  • Flying sharks!
  • Friend Coins: Collect a coin every time you beat a friend's high score
  • Global leaderboards
  • Old school arcade ‘attract’ mode
