Game Play

You start on an underwater sled that can fire torpedoes. The object is to rescue all the hostages. Avoid or shoot any enemies that come your way. If your sled runs out of fuel it will explode. When you get the warning that fuel is almost out, press the dismount button to get off the sled. Now you are swimming freely and your weapon is a harpoon. If you kill the owner of another sled you can mount it and use torpedoes again.
