Submerge Yourself in a Sea of Arcade Shooter Fun with Marine Boy for iOS

BlueFinger Apps, a leading mobile game and applications developer, is excited today to announce the recent launch of an updated and improved version of Marine Boy – the studio’s popular arcade adventure blast – onto the App Store. Compatible with the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, this free wildly kinetic shooter challenges gamers to tilt, duck, and shoot their way across the ocean in a yellow sub in search of lost treasure!

Marine Boy is filled with vibrantly colorful cartoon graphics, adrenaline pumping motion-controlled action, bonus items and power-ups to collect, and gameplay that’s as varied as it is addicting. This arcade odyssey under the sea packs more than enough punch to ensure everyone from casual gamers to hardcore mobile game lovers will be glued to their iOS devices for hours on end. Newly updated to allow players to access to every level in the game instantly, Marine Boy is currently available for download on the App Store for Free.

Though complete with its own quirky storyline, this game remains faithful to its side-scrolling 3rd person arcade shooter roots. You control how high or low your sub goes by tilting your device up or down, and shoot by simply tapping anywhere on the screen. Marine Boy is an expansive title too – the game features 124 total stages spread across 64 levels, which in turn are split up into mini-adventures in four exotic different and uniquely designed underwater worlds. As you move from stage to stage you’ll run into progressively more dangerous – and more numerous – enemies. You only get three lives to beat each stage so collecting the coins which fall out of each one is pivotal if you hope to buy new weapons or upgrade existing ones to keep them all at bay! . . . running into the occasional power-up, special weapon, or life boost doesn’t hurt either.

With Marine Boy 1.02 you won’t need to wait to unlock every level of adventure since it’s all already open, but that doesn’t mean you can just breeze through the game. Without the right weapons you don’t stand a chance. Luckily, if you’re not the type to grind up coins and power up the old fashioned way you can always simply buy 20,000 coins via in-app purchase and turn the tides against your watery foes in the blink of an eye! To boot, the most competitive Marine Boys can battle for the top rank via the game’s Game Center interactive leaderboards too. Your hunt for arcade treasure starts with Marine Boy on the App Store, you just have to ask yourself one thing – are you ready to take the plunge?

Language Support:
American English and Korean

Visulax Sleep Aid, a deep sleep aid that utilizes guided meditation for relaxation and sleeping deeply, is a perfect gift for Mom.

The app was created by Rick Nanda & Spencer Leu, whose mission is simple, improve life. Sleep disorders affect millions of people around the world and can be expensive to remedy. After experimenting with other sleep apps they realized there was a gap in the market. According to Rick, “Many guided meditation sleep apps are either hard to hear, have a poorly done voice-over, or an accent that may be difficult to understand. These can all be irritating factors when trying to sleep.” Their solution was to find someone with a neutral American English accent and have it professionally recorded in a studio.

The result is a 30 minute guided meditation with relaxing meditation background music designed to help the user fall into a peaceful and deep sleep. The app also allows the user to take notes on how they slept and send them to their calendar.
