There you are bobbing along on the beautiful briney blue sea. making like Miami Vice, when what happens? A submarine decides to take a pot shot at you with a heat-seeking missile. Shaken but not stirred you check the emergency supplies: a life jacket, flares (you little trendy!), the Observer book of fish spotting and, oh yes, a crate of depth charges What a stroke of luck! 

The only thing to do is start hauling them over the side, and kick some serious sub rudder! These depth charges can be made to sink faster or slower, to catch out those sneaky ships which have some strange aversion to high explosives and salt water. These, though, axe the only weapons you get, and only a limited number at that, so prudence is required when using them. So go get Prudence and of? we jolly well go.

You are sailing over what looks like Egypt in the monsoon season, when you see subs starting to sail around beneath you. There are three types; nice bright red ones, camouflaged ones (why?) and big silver ones that look like jelly fish with a weight problem. The first two are no hassle, apart from the fact that they try to launch mines at you. The Jelly-Fish are really nasty as they chase you , even oil the surface!

The nice submariners do their best to help you out of this situation by sending up supply buoys when you send them to Davy Jones'ss (that's enough "s,s,s" - ed.) Locker. You have to race along and collect the marker flags, which alerts the coast guard to your predicament and along comes his chopper to give a helping hand. Aid comcs in the form of extra weapons, sometimes a smart bomb (no scruffy bombs around here), and sometimes a guided torpedo, or hydrofoil power to help you sail from side to side of the screen much faster.

That's about it really. There's no gameplay to speak of. all there is to do is to use your limited arsenal (sorry, the football special is getting to me!) to waste as many subs as possible. It is however a strangely enjoyable game to play, especially as you develop techniques for catching even the sneakiest subs with your charges.

The graphics are limited, by the subject matter - after all, what can you do with a boat to make it look sexy? (Don't answer that.) But the sprites are detailed and there's good use of colour.

The game itself seems a bit of a throwback to earlier styles, but this doesn't slop it from being fun. Controls arc simple to use and objectives clear. Only the guided torpedo Is awkward, and what's the point of having a special weapon that makes you more likely to get killed?

If you fancy a life on the ocean (er, I mean US Gold) wave, and some mindless fun you could do a lot worse than than taking a dip in The Deep.

Pas de problème donc pour nous!

L'Amstrad CPC est une machine 8 bits à base d'un Z80 à 4MHz. Le premier de la gamme fut le CPC 464 en 1984, équipé d'un lecteur de cassettes intégré il se plaçait en concurrent  du Commodore C64 beaucoup plus compliqué à utiliser et plus cher. Ce fut un réel succès et sorti cette même années le CPC 664 équipé d'un lecteur de disquettes trois pouces intégré. Sa vie fut de courte durée puisqu'en 1985 il fut remplacé par le CPC 6128 qui était plus compact, plus soigné et surtout qui avait 128Ko de RAM au lieu de 64Ko.
