The competitive, free-to-play game is available now for iOS and launches this week with support from Discovery, which includes on-air exposure. Though designed as an animated pixel game, Deadliest Catch: Seas of Fury offers show fans and mobile game lovers alike a highly authentic experience of the harrowing weather conditions, daily struggles and beautiful but pernicious sea-life experienced by the cast of Discovery's hit Emmy-winning series, currently in its 12th season.

The Deadliest Catch: Seas of Fury Mobile Game features a two-phased gameplay dynamic that leverages both classic and innovative mechanics. After customizing their own deckhand avatar and selecting one of six recognizable boats from the show, like the Northwestern and Cornelia Marie, players are challenged to hook buoys in a mechanic similar to that made famous by Angry Birds. Gameplay then shifts to the ocean floor, where players must tap quickly and carefully to fend off dangerous sea life as each level's pot of crabs is hauled to the surface. Virtual earnings can be used at a robust marketplace offering items such as hooks, line, captain's jackets and bait, which allow players to upgrade their gameplay experience. At launch, players can engage in challenges, compete on global leaderboards and work their way toward completing as many 21-level seasons as possible.
