Description

The player reverses Bubble Dizzy and controls a deep-sea diver descending, oh so gradually, into the murky blue in search of ... what? The unknown! Adventure! Because it was there!

No doubt due to decompression sickness the diver must maintain a controlled descent into the black depths, hopping like a very slow mountain goat from foothold to foothold in (curiously buoyancy-neutral) floating stones in a fashion so calculated its mouse-selected gauge seems lifted from an artillery game -- with the diver as the payload! Miscalculate and the deep-sea explorer plummets too fast, his faceplate no doubt cracking beneath the enormous pressure and his intrepid frame instantly reduced to jelly by the intense pressure.

But no worry, the player gets five shots at it, each resuming from the previous diver's fatal mis-jump, and any pearls encountered along the way finance an additional diver each, but be careful: they need to be collected with great alacrity.
