BLOWSUB INSTRUCTIONS
 
Controls

Start = begin game
Pause = pause/resume game
Reset = reset

Before you begin a game you can select the control method with:

1 = digital control via joystick in port #1
2 = analog control via joystick in port #1 (also suitable for paddles)
3 = trak-ball control in port #2 (only available if a trak-ball is connected)

Note that the keypad will follow the controller port.

Gameplay

You control the ship at the top of the screen.
Use the joystick to move left and right.
Press the trigger to drop a depth charge.
Up to 4 depth charges may be launched at any one time.

You start the game with 90 seconds on the clock in which to destroy as many deep sea submarines as possible.
These are the submarines without their rigging up, in the darker sea towards the bottom of the screen.
You are awarded 100, 200, 500 or 750 points for each one you destroy, depending on their depth.
You receive no points for destroying the other submarines.
Every 10,000 points you will get a time extension of 45 seconds.

The submarines will launch missiles at you.
When hit by a missile your ship is destroyed, but a replacement ship will quickly become available.
Occasionally when your ship is destroyed a survivor will escape on a rowing boat.
He should row out of the way as quickly as possible by repeatedly pressing the trigger or waggling the joystick left and right.

There are mines in the sea which you should aim to hit. Doing so will destroy all submarines currently on-screen.

There are also giant electric eels in the sea. You should avoid hitting these as they will cause a shock!
