It has been 3 years since a dreadful war nearly brought the planet of Atlantis to its knees. Cities still lay in ruins.

Throughout the galaxy, rumours of hidden treasures persist and so Lady Mandrill has dispatched Spectra to explore the underwater ruins and bring back any riches that can be found.

Arriving at Atlantis, Spectra parks her ship in orbit above the worst hit areas. At least here there is less chance of running into the Atlantean army which are still busy rebuilding the central city hubs.

Spectra settles down into the secondary cockpit and flicks a couple of switches - her micro-submersible (which she lovingly nicknamed ‘Baby Gulp’) detaches from the ship and splashes down into the planetary ocean below.

The bubbles rise, the searchlights flick on. Now to begin the hunt...


The aim of the game is to collect 10 treasure chests and then escape through the bubble vortex.

Move your submarine left and right with the O and P keys. Use Q to ascend.

These stinging creatures will puncture holes in your craft with their tentacles.

Filled with noxious gas, these bubbles will disrupt your oxygen supply and kill you.

These clams burp out a fog of deadly acid into the water.

Broken pipes that are still electrically charged can short out your submarine.

Old war mines will explode on contact.
