Deep Loot is all about exploration in different depths underwater. It features a decent pixel art style, jolly chiptune music tracks and a fun diving adventure heavily relied on air supplies and other boosters.
In Deep Loot players assume the role of a diver on the mission to search for and gather anything ranging from drift bottles and discord diamonds to ancient helmets and Pliosaur bones. Amongst, some discoveries are simply coins and trinkets, but some others are special pieces that make valuable collections.
The endless treasures are hidden either secretively inside sand blocks or quietly lying somewhere in the deep underwater world. As diving down, players can use a drill to break blocks in the hope to find something special or aim for the deeper using limited airs to reach down, down and down for greater rewards and danger as well. Different acts consume air differently. It’s upon to players how they want to plan their routes and dig up loots.
No treasure hunting is without hazards. Combat is part of the adventure. There are tons of creatures including timid fish, overbearing crabs, poisonous jellyfish and even sharks and more roaming in the different depths of the waters. Not all of them are hostile but danger increases as the diving meters climb. And aggressive sealife usually take themselves as guardians and owners of pearls, treasure chests, sunken ships and other collectible loot.
Players are not helpless, though. They can get rid of enemies with equipped weapon and sometimes apply the attack/defense power-ups, collected during exploring or purchased beforehand, to make the battle more effective. Compared to the dangerous creatures, the lack of air is more fatal. Not that it will cost any life, for Deep Loot does not have the freemium-related timer but let players reach the boat when running out of air. It is that a short excursion due to the limited air tank is not quite satisfactory. That’s where the power-up supplies come into play.
Get air supplies to continue diving uninterruptedly, use keys to open locked treasure chest without air-consuming bashing, and have a head start directly reaching to 200 meters or below via the super/turbo boosts. In addition to dive supplies, players have several other options from costumes, fancier ships and upgrades that offer cosmetic or/and concrete effects.
Deep Loot is a free title with IAP but it takes the free model reasonably and elegantly. It does not have ads or a timer to infringe on the fun. Items in the shop can be purchased for coins earned by playing. And if players want to skip the initial grinding for hording coins, they can buy coin packs at a reasonable price, from $0.99 for 100,000 to $6.99 for 5 million. With a pack of 3 emergency air supplies costing 250 coins, a small investment in the game will turn Deep Loot into a solid premium title.
Deep Loot features a really simple control. From exploration to combat to collection, all takes no more than a tapping. One complaint, however, is that moving around is not responsive as expected. Otherwise, it is a good game that will sink chucks of time. [iTune Link]
