Kansas City, MO (PressExposure) July 13, 2011 -- Backlight Software delivers with 'Submerged!', a fresh underwater strategy combat game for iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. Likening itself to "action chess", 'Submerged!' requires players to choose their options wisely and employ clever strategy in order to overcome the opponents. Using primitive controls similar to what one might have found in a submarine from over 40 years ago, players must navigate treacherous waters, identify objects, collect treasure, and battle it out with enemies. Players accumulate points by defeating enemies and collecting treasure, but lose points if they accidentally harm marine life in the process.
While the single player mode is plenty of fun, it's the multi-player aspect that really makes this game shine! By utilizing Apple's Game Center platform, 'Submerged!' allows players to match up against friends or players from around the world, and allows players to play in their language of choice.
"We wanted to create a game that brings people together." said Kyle Geiger, President of Tragen Venture, LLC and Executive Producer for 'Submerged!'. "Our goal was to produce a thrilling combat adventure game that friends could get together and play in groups."
James Hall, project coordinator from Backlight Software, commented, saying; "We wanted to bring some of that same daring suspense that you experience in underwater battle scenes from such movies as 'Hunt for Red October' or 'Crimson Tide'. You don't have windows and doors on a submarine, and part of that sensation of fear comes from the fact that you can't really see what's going on around you on until that [sonar] wand comes around again."
'Submerged!' should appeal to casual gamers of all ages and is available now on the iTunes App Store. It is compatible with iPad, iPhone 3GS or later, and requires iOS 4.2 or later. Languages: English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.
