This game provides examples of:

  • Collision Damage: Colliding into another ship or sub causes you to die and end your game, even if you have lives left. If you do it to another sub, both you and it sink and you get points, but doing so to a ship causes only you to sink. Colliding into mines only makes you lose one life.
  • Idiosyncratic Difficulty Levels: The difficulty names are based on navy ranks - Ensign, Commander, and Admiral.
  • No Plot? No Problem!: There's no plot provided, not even in the instructions.
  • Advertisement:
  • One Bullet at a Time: There can be only one torpedo fired by your sub on screen.
  • Red Sky, Take Warning: The game has a red sky at all times, which turns redder when you die.
  • Stuff Blowing Up: Everything blows up when hit with a stock effect or several.
  • Sub Story: The entire game takes place in a submarine in which you shoot mines and avoid other ships' bombs.
