[Update] Out at midnight: Scuba Diver Adventures lets you explore the depths (for a price)

Product: Scuba Diver Adventures: Beyond the Depths
Developer: Biart
Publisher: Chillingo
Format: iPhone, iPad
Genre: Adventure

Updated on March 26th, at 15:27: Common sense prevails - the IAP-riddled Scuba Diving Adventures won't actually be 69p / 99c, Chillingo tells us. It will in fact be available for free. We've edited the piece.

And now for something completely different. At midnight tonight, Chillingo will launch handsome underwater diving game Scuba Diver Adventures: Beyond the Depths on iPhone and iPad.

You play as adventurous diving lass Nicole, who's on the verge of uncovering some sunken treasure with her pal Eddie. Along the way they'll be exploring hidden ruins, feeding fish, and taking photo of manta rays.

The bad news is that the game is drowning (see what I did there?) in in-app purchases, with a stingy energy system, a pair of currencies, and constant offers to buy better kit and one-off cheats.

See for yourself in our First Play video, above. The game's out tonight. It's free, but will probably cost you a whole lot more after that.
