A maniacal scientist named Dr. Riptide has created a weapon called the Tuna-Matic to turn the world's sea creatures into a canned delicacy to sell to the rich. You must seek him out and stop him using a submarine to navigate to his hiding place and defeat the many creatures that protect him. Your submarine has weapons, and is also accompanied by a smaller submarine called JASON. You can toggle between controlling either vessel, but JASON can only operate on its own for a short time before running out of power. JASON is used to get into small spaces to open doors or expose power-ups for the larger sub. You die if you run out of shields or air, so you're in a hurry to conserve air, but you need to exercise caution to avoid taking damage. The game can be quite challenging even on the Easy difficulty level, but fortunately there are passwords for every level. There are 3 episodes in this game, with only the first episode playable in the shareware version.
