Discovery Channel and Hands-On Mobile today announced the Deadliest Catch App is available on the App Store for $3.99. The app, based on Discovery Channel’s Emmy-winning show, Deadliest Catch, challenges iPhone and iPod touch users to survive harsh weather and freezing temperatures as they try to fill the crab tanks by the end of the season.
“If you’re a fan of the Deadliest Catch or just enjoy a great challenge, this game will have you on your toes and determined to beat the storm and catch some crab, just like the daring captains and crew on the series,” said Lynn Monica, vice president and general manager of mobile games for Hands-On Mobile.
In the game, players take on the role of a captain and pick their vessel, crew and gear. They then set sail on a dangerous and exciting journey across the Bering Sea. It’s a race against time to fill their crab quotas and return their crew home safely to Dutch Harbor. The players’ survival skills are tested with treacherous weather conditions and unexpected challenges.
Key game features include:
- A suite of mini games with the option to play each as a stand-alone casual game.
- As the game progresses, players win money and get points. Players can save up and cash in to unlock bigger more expensive boats and more experienced crew.
- Accurate and familiar icons from the show that will appeal to fans of the series.
- Slick visual and audio presentation.
The Deadliest Catch App is available for $3.99 from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore.
