Pearl Diver must be the underwater version of Frogger. Two divers must dive to the sea bed and gather pearls, before their air runs out. But that's not all - they also have to avoid the sea creatures that swim across their path.

When the diver's air supply is running short, a siren sounds and a red flag is raised. Failure to return within the warning time means the end of the hapless diver. The game ends when no divers are left.

Control of movement is by the keyboard. It's disappointing that there is no option for a joystick.

A choice of two skill levels make this quite enjoyable to play, but it is certainly overpriced.
