Submarine Commander





Submarine Commander 


Submarine Commander is yet another game I was able to play, live stream, and process into a video that is on the Atari Collection 2 cartridge on the Evercade systems. I completely comprehend the concept of Submarine Commander. It honestly just bores me. We are shooting at ships on the water. Why are we blowing all these ships away? I am honestly not sure. Supposedly we are protecting our waters.

There is something that Submarine Commander that perplexed me. We are supposed to shoot some ugly looking ships and leave others alone. I am not clear as to which ones to shoot and which ones to leave alone. Submarine Commander is also a clone of other games that were previously released like Air-Sea Battle. I am not sure that Submarine Commander is actually any better though.

One of the knocks on the Atari 2600 and games from this era is there was a lot of shovelware. If you are not familiar with that term let me explain. There were too many similar games, and games that were really low quality released on the Atari 2600. The market got flooded with too many bad games. Submarine Commander is not horrible but it is not great either. There are plenty of better games from that era of gaming history.

I got bored shooting torpedoes at the ships in Submarine Commander. I also made the mistake at first of shooting everything I could. You do not want to do that in Submarine Commander. You want to shoot just the bad ships. Again I had issues figuring that out. The graphics are not great for Submarine Commander. They are really blocky. The audio in Submarine Commander is obnoxious.

We are shown some full ships and some partial ships in Submarine Commander. I had fun trying to target these ships as they flew by on the screen. I did not enjoy my time with Submarine Commander. I understand what they were trying to do. Technologically Submarine Commander could have been a whole lot better. Future submarine games improved upon the concept.
