Deadliest Catch is one of the most popular shows available on Discovery Channel today and has definitely garnered some attention with it’s reality-based view on those who get us our crabs to eat. Because of its success, there was only a matter of time before a game would be made for mobile devices to give fans the chance to live the life of danger for that large sum of cash.
The Deadliest Catch for Android phones is an app created to do just that but it falls very short of a decent game. In fact, deadliest catch is very close to the worst game I have ever played on an Android phone. The graphics are extremely sub par and the gameplay is basically a bunch of minigames, all very similar to each other and thrown together. The game’s load times were kind of ridiculous for such a simple app and really tried my patience.
There really isn’t much to this game and for the price being asked for it, it’s a waste of money. Hardcore fans of the series may find some sort of redeeming quality to the game but anyone else will just find this game to be excruciatingly slow and extremely pointless. The controls are clunky, the graphics are aweful, and the gameplay is pretty much non-existent.
