Emulated in MAME ! [Console] Atari 2600 Cartridge
Sub-Scan © 1982 Sega Enterprises, Limited.
Now hear this! Now hear this! All hands man your battle stations.
Enemy submarines have been detected in your waters. You command a destroyer which can launch as many as four depth charges at a time. Your mission is to sink as many enemy subs as possible.
But it's not that simple. Because SUB-SCAN is more than a shooting match. It's a game of strategy. A battle of wits. Can-and-mouse on the high seas between the hunter above and the hunted below.
Your main mission is to hit all the subs. Miss ten and the game is over.
Once you have aimed a depth charge at a particular sub, keep your eye on the depth charge and the sub. A shallower sub might cruise into the battle scene and run into a previously targeted depth charge. In this case you’ll need to quickly launch another depth charge to hit your original target sub.
Avoid hitting the BONUS SUB as long as you possibly can! This builds the bonus value up at an incredible rate and keeps the subs moving at a manageable speed. Remember: a BONUS SUB never counts as a missed sub if you let it go.
Use the viewport. If you time it right, you can hit subs just as they enter the battle scene.
