There are a total of 10 missions to complete to win the sea battle. Beginning
with the first mission, you will need to sink all 10 of the enemy ships to

At the start of a game, in the lower-left corner of the screen you will see the
mission number, followed by the number of ships you need to sink on this
mission. Next you will see a friendly ship (identified by the “+” symbol in the
upper left portion of theLCD) and notice that your armor (shown by the thick
vertical bars) is being replenished to maximum protection. Finally, your submarine is loaded with torpedoes – 24 total.

enemy ships. Fast-moving PT Boats can often speed across undetected.

• Press and hold to see the highest score achieved on this unit (since the
batteries were installed or the game reset). In the lower left corner, under
the words “BEST MISSION”, you will see the highest mission level

The Aircraft Carrier, Destroyer and PT Boat are all capable of dropping
Depth Charges as they pass by.
Use the MOVE button to move your sub out of the way of the falling Depth
Charges as often as possible.
As you move your sub around, you will also need to be aware of underwater
mines which float at various levels under the surface of the water. If a mine
becomes positioned immediately in front of you it will explode and damage
your sub.
During the game, the Depth Charges and Underwater Mines will take their
toll on your armor,as you can tell by the dwindling number of bars on the
bottom of the LCD. You will need to dock with a friendly cargo ship to
restore your armor to full strength. If you see a friendly ship (identified by
the “+” symbol), move your sub up to the surface level when the friendly
ship is directly in front of you. Your ammo will automatically recharge. When
you run out of torpedoes, your torpedo stock will automatically be restored.
This operation will take several seconds and you will not be able to fire a
torpedo while your stock is being restored. Each of your Tubes is stocked
with 12 torpedoes. When a Tube is out of torpedoes, it will say “EMPTY” in
the upper left or right corner.
