New iPhone and iPod touch Game Allows Players to Explore the Oceans and Remove Radioactive Waste.

UK– December 16, 2009– Chillingo has announced that its underwater action-adventure game, Mission Deep Sea, is now available for iPhone and iPod touch from Apple’s iTunes App Store.

Developed by Hiccup Studios, Mission Deep Sea takes place within a 3D underwater world. The year is 2016, and gamers play the role of a soldier who has a synaptic link to a loggerhead sea turtle. Innovative use of the touch screen allows players to use their fingers to move the turtle’s flippers in multiple directions as it navigates through stunning underwater environments.

“Mission Deep Sea is a game that’s truly enjoyable to play, as well as being educational and entertaining,” said Hiccup Studios’ Emrecan Cubukcu. Chillingo co-founder Chris Byatte added,“The innovative control method means people will enjoy exploring the underwater environments as soon as they start playing.”

Game Features

• Beautiful 3D Underwater Environments: A well-designed and graphically imaginative world beneath the sea. Explore the environment in full exploring shipwrecks and underwater gardens.

• Explore and Discover: Dive in and experience the multi touch underwater swimming experience as a sea turtle.
