An organization known as the D.A.S. ([[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Destroy And Satsujin--"Satsujin" meaning "Massacre"]]) used [[DoomsdayDevice magnetic doomsday machines]] on the polar ice caps, causing them to melt. The entire world was quickly flooded, but a few societies survived to build over the highest land masses they could find and continue living. In this [[AfterTheEnd post apocalyptic scenario]], the D.A.S., who were prepared for this catastrophe, [[TheEmpire reigns supreme over the survivors with martial law]] and [[MechaMooks military weapons]] of [[HumongousMecha extraordinary power]]. After learning of D.A.S.'s efforts to create an even more powerful superweapon, "Yugusukyuure", the remaining survivors who are terrorized by D.A.S. secretly organize a [[LaResistance rebellion force]] using a [[SuperiorFirePowerMissileSubmarines newly developed submarine known as the Granvia]]. The [[ItsUpToYou Granvia's mission is to dive into D.A.S. enforced waters, territories and eventually the D.A.S. headquarters itself to destroy every single D.A.S. weapon in sight]].

* GimmickLevel: The Channel, a river running through a city overrun with the D.A.S.'s [[MechaMooks death machines]]. The water is dreadfully shallow, severely limiting your movement. Almost all of the enemies here will attack you from above the water, including the HumongousMecha [[StationaryBoss boss]]. You will have to use your SuperiorFirepowerSurfaceToAirMissiles extensively here.
* GlassCannon: Your submarine has a [[MacrossMissileMassacre T]][[SuperiorFirepowerSurfaceToAirMissiles O]][[SuperiorFirePowerMissileSubmarines N]] of firepower and can make short work of almost everything [[OneManArmy by itself]]. However, it [[OneHitPointWonder goes down in one hit]]...

* SuperiorFirePowerMissileSubmarines: Your character. Also, the MiniBoss in the final stage [[MacrossMissileMassacre who loves to spam missiles]] might be considered one too.
* SuperiorFirepowerSurfaceToAirMissiles: Your anti-air attack, only usable when your submarine is surfaced. You WILL NEED THIS to damage enemies above the water (remember to surface first!), especially in the GimmickLevel, The Channel.

* ViolationOfCommonSense: You'd expect that beating the game on one credit will get you a GoldenEnding that's even better than the GoodEnding, but no. Doing a perfect run will net you one of the {{Downer Ending}}s instead. If you want to get the good ending, you must use up more than one credit (read: see the Continue? screen at least once) before you tackle the FinalBoss' final form.

* DownerEnding: [[MultipleEndings Three of them]]. In the first [[spoiler:when you beat the game as one player [[NoDamageRun without using any continues]], you are destroyed along with the enemy base]]. The second and third occur [[spoiler:when you beat the game with two players, and are [[FightingYourFriend forced to fight your friend]]. If you succeed in destroying in the other player, you [[FaceHeelTurn become the new leader of the D.A.S]]. If the time runs out before any of the players are destroyed, both characters sink to the bottom of the ocean.]]

* DoWellButNotPerfect: If you managed to reach the [[SequentialBoss final form]] of the FinalBoss in one credit, you would get the special ending. It's [[DownerEnding not a happy one]]. Beating the game on more than one credit gave you the happy ending. Apparently, the boss has a "furious explosion" that destroys your sub should you get the bad ending.

Added DiffLines:

** "Unrelated"? Maybe, but all of those games, and a few others, were part of Irem's Post-Apocalypse Series, a set of games which were all staged in a desolate wasteland future. So it is likely they're meant to be some kind of errant timeline, made up of a bunch of games all set in the wake of...well probably this "flood the world" nonsense, seeing as Undercover Cops and Air Duel features stages with flooded, war zone cities in the background, probably the result of D.A.S.'s psychopathic plans for world domination.
