Paradise Software's $49.95 MacScuba scuba-diving simulation program is both a game and an educational tool; it follow basic rules of scuba diving while challenging players to gather treasure from a sunken ship. The program adheres to US Navy dive tables; its Basic Diver level lets users compose an accurate dive plan while the Advanced Diver level involves exploring a maze of chambers in a sunken wreck. MacDiver introduces and reinforces important safety procedures; users can 'check equipment' before diving. MacScuba's graphics are somewhat repetitive, and the player can only turn at 90-degree angles. Documentation is somewhat poor, and the program overemphasizes shark attacks and other unrealistic but exciting situations.
