Call of Booty is the 48th episode of Pocket God. It was submitted to Apple in November 2014, and it got released on 27th of the same month. This episode introduced a new underwater area, the Coral Shelf, that can be accessed by giving the newly added waterwings to a Pygmy, which also serves as the location for a new minigame, Call of Booty.
This episode adds three new most prominent features. A new island option is available, which lets you select, and use, the waterwings from the comic. You can give the item to a Pygmy, and he will suddendly jump inside the ocean, being now able to swim.
The player will now access to a new and vast underwater area, filled with ruins, mythological sunken cities, shipwrecks and various sea plants and corals. The area also hosts a dangerous group of blob fishes, a bunch of magic mines and some oysters, at the bottom. The player can freely swim, by tapping and releasing the two sides of his device, but upon touching one of the floating treasures scattered around, the minigame of the same name of the episode will start.
The blob fishes will become aggressive, and start chasing the Pygmy, who now has a limited amount of air. In order to survive, the player will have to grab all the 20 different treasures, while avoiding all the dangers. The game ends if the Pygmy dies, or swims to the sea's surface.
This update also made Pocket God universal (even if it still has bars on the top and bottom and on the sides, respectively for tablets and wide phones).

- The name of this episode is a joke on the videogame Call of Duty.
- The Story Editor now contains a new unfinished location, know as Fail Boat, which can be accessed as an easter-egg. It has the God Island's theme, as the music. Dave revealed on TouchArcade that that was originally going to be the original Ep 45, but they decided to quit that idea, as it would have taken too much time.
- The Ocean Floor is currently the only area, except for the Chambers, in Pocket God that cannot be directly accessed from the map. It is also the only one that doesn't fit in a screen, and doesn't have options. It is also the only official area that doesn't have an original theme, instead, it uses the Underwater Area one.
- Call of Booty is currently the only non-endless game of Pocket God.
