Silent Depth Offers Players a World War II Submarine Battle SimulationDecember 24, 2016
Miesbach, Germany – Codeknitters today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Silent Depth 1.0.2, an important update to their entertaining and challenging 3D submarine simulation for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Android devices. Players take command of a World War II Gato/Balao class submarine on patrol in the perilous waters of the Pacific Ocean. Captains must face the challenge of attacking Japanese merchant ships, while avoiding detection by the dangerous Japanese Navy destroyer escorts.
Players who accept the challenge of this comprehensive submarine simulator will need to plan their attacks carefully. They’ll be faced with opposition by Japanese warships and fighter planes, as they work to complete missions successfully; while faced with changing weather conditions, various types of fleets, and three levels of difficulty.
“Silent Depth is the first real 3D submarine simulation ever created for iOS and Android devices. While there have been arcade-type games built around submarine warfare, this is the first one that requires the player to pay close attention to the conditions and types of enemy they will face,” says Martin Leidel, co-founder of Codeknitters, and the developer of Silent Depth. “The game takes place in the Pacific Ocean, which makes for a huge challenge for any player!”
