Best Simulator Atari Game ever

An underrated classic. I played this one a TON as a kid. A slower-paced Star Raiders, in my opinion!

Amazing Game...I've stayed in the bottom of the sea, totally in silence and waiting to hear the enemy convoy blades sounding...those were the days.... :)

Awesome game, totally immersive. (No pun intended.) Navigating the sea, chasing down ships at your own pace, working out the best strategies, dealing with hull damage, and the inevitable death of your submarine (could this game be beaten? I never did...) And all with graphics about less advanced than 2600's "Air Sea Battle." Classic.

You're the commander of a World War II submarine on patrol in the Mediterranean and there are enemy convoys at all points of the compass. Your job is to sink as much enemy shipping as possible while keeping your sub intact. This is no fast-paced shoot-em-up. You're really in a sub with all of its problems and limitations-batteries that need recharging, an air supply that needs to be replenished... [more]
