Description: Open Water Scuba is a never ending underwater environment supporting Oculus Touch with dynamic creatures, shark encounters, daytime and night dives, and detailed locations tailored to famous sites around the world.

Procedural terrain and dynamic fish allow exploration with caves, arches, swim throughs and many other types of dives. Dive masters are available to help with route finding to the most interesting coral and animal encounters.

Review: There are now a few different underwater adventure/experience apps out there and some of them are truly amazing. Open Water Scuba isn’t in that higher tier or underwater experiences games, but it does indeed have its pros. The choice of worlds and their size is a definite plus as is the variety of sea life to see and dive with. The good news is I found it moderately enjoyable for the first twenty minutes or so, but things soon got a little boring and the clinching graphics and unnecessary dramatic pan rounds started to get the better of me. For kids, this might be a great little educational tool to help them learn about the various sea life that lives in a particular area. But for us adults is a slow-moving, barren experience that isn’t exciting to look at nor experience.

But it’s not horrendous and like I said it does have its pros and any budding young diver will enjoy it. It’s just that there are free apps out there that offer the same and look a thousand times better.
