“Deep Ones has an interesting visual style with a simplistic feel reminiscent of some earlier titles on the ZX Spectrum, but it gets into deep water with its shifting game modes and dissatisfying controls. Considering the calibre of action-platformers on the eShop at the moment, the game drowns in amongst its competition.”
2.5/5 – Switch Player

“Deep Ones é um jogo de plataforma 2D retro que não tenta inovar, mas cumpre o pouco que promete. Tem comandos lentos pela sua temática e uma arte incrível, mas a repetição de níveis e alguns problemas de jogabilidade pode afastar o jogador da aventura. Seus níveis exigem memorização do que fazer e depois de um tempo você consegue progredir sem problemas. As batalhas contra chefes são as mais divertidas do game. A trilha sonora não é ruim, mas não combina com o jogo, isso incomoda mais ainda em batalhas contra chefes. O preço pequeno de Deep Ones faz com que ele seja uma boa opção para quem procura algumas horas de diversão por um preço leve, mas não é nem de longe um jogo obrigatório para donos do Switch, pois Deep Ones é um game com público bem”
50/100 – SwitchBrasil

“Overall, I loved this game! Deep Ones is a great retro arcade platformer that, if you are into that kind of game, everyone should play! And even if you aren’t into platformers or that old school look, you should still check it out on Steam, because it’s a super cheap game and a lot of fun! There is definitely something addicting about this game.”

About This Game

The main protagonist of this story suffers a crash on his submarine. The great red octopus is the reason of this, his will of destroying every traveler that he encounters may seem unbeatable, but Diver isn't exactly as simple as he looks. He is encouraged to walk along the bottom of the ocean, plunge into the depths of the darkest corners, to rip and tear through the thick plants of sea weed and fight with the most unknown creatures of the world that is beneath, just to get his submarine back in his command. On his path, he will witness many beautiful landscapes of the scenery and will acquire many trustworthy allies, all of which will also enrich his stories that will be worthy of telling about... That is, of course, if you'll be able to help him survive and triumph over the evil.

Compelling and philosophical storyline
Unusual visual presentation of the game, inspired by the ZX Spectrum
Classic arcade gameplay
Different genre entries, for example, "shoot 'em up" genre will make it's way into the game, at a certain point.
Peculiar soundtrack of calm, but rythmical synth sounds
