New App: Flappy Diver by DIVEmApps, Inc

** COMING SOON – July 1, 2014 ** Coming soon on Apple’s iTunes App Store. The second app from DIVEmApps, Holistic Hybrid’s mobile development subsidiary.   After successfully launching our Bali Dive Guide in April, our mobile team wanted to work on a simple, fun scuba diving themed game. Inspired by other “flappy titles” out there, we created new design assets for a TAP-based game. Six test versions later.. You have Flappy Diver version 1.0 (without sound – Sorry we have yet found the right sound and music for it… Good thing we’re giving the game away for FREE.)   What is Flappy Diver? Flappy Diver is a simple tap action game. Your diver must swim through a series of coral columns in order to collect air bubbles …but don’t touch the coral or you’ll die! Get it ? “DON’T TOUCH THE CORAL OR YOU WILL DIE” This is about coral conservation, and keeping your buoyancy while diving in downwards currents… Ok Flappy Diver, are you ready? On your mark, get ready, tap or die! Why did we make Flappy Diver? We made Flappy Diver because we wanted to create something fun for divers to play with, to pass time on their way to a dive site or in between dives… You know, because sometimes you just don’t feel social! Play Flappy Diver! We bet you can’t make it to 100! Or will you be the first person to score a cool 1000 recorded in the Game Centre? Or perhaps you’re aiming for 10k+ like that dude did on that other flappy bird clone: Flappy Stars?  Share your score with other players, challenge other divers! Download it Starting July 1, 2014 – It’s FREE! What do you have to lose except time? Also check out our Bali Dive Guide, available on the iTunes App Store.  ...
