Your battleship is trapped on the high seas in an ambush of enemy submarines whose mission is to sink you.

Avoid the torpedoes of the submarines and shoot the deep charges of your battleship to get rid of them.


The game consists of a total of nine levels. To complete a level you must sink all the submarines. You have a total of 3 lives to overcome them.

You have the possibility of firing up to three simultaneous depth charges on both sides of the ship. When the charges reaches the bottom or hits a submarine, it's available again for use. Calculate your shots carefully so that they hit the target.

  • Study the enemies movement to get a good precision in your attacks.
  • A shallow submarine can reach you quickly with its torpedoes, but it will be easy to sink. However, the deepest will be much harder to hit.
