Imagine Endless Ocean on DS millions of years ago - both in terms of prehistoric monsters and graphics. After you%26rsquo;ve mentally stripped out any visual delights, now imagine you%26rsquo;re playing as the fish, rather than a human observer, and your only objective is to, basically, not die. There%26rsquo;s no actual tangible objective beyond this.
Eat fish, dig out fossils, read some interesting snippets of educational material on fossils, eat more fish, then take the odd swipe at a gigantic prehistoric predator who%26rsquo;d like to either eat you or make you its cuddle monkey. The controls work thusly: up on the D-pad swims forwards, while direction and depth is stylus-controlled on the touch screen. A shoulder button locks onto prey incredibly clumsily, and before very long at all you realize this is less Deep Blue Sea, and more In The Trash.
