Box

The player takes command of a US Los Angeles-class or Soviet Alfa-class nuclear-powered attack submarine and plays ten missions ranging from into either Cold War scenarios or combat missions in a hypothetical global conflict.

As modeled in the game, the American submarine has more sophisticated electronics and more weapons. The Soviet boat has fewer weapons but higher sustained speeds.

This was one of the earliest games that allowed two players to play against each other over a modem (or null modem cable),[citation needed] and one of the first to use more than 32 colors in MCGA mode.
