Good Looking game.
A tip would be to add an lite version so people can see how this game works before they purchase it

I like the art work, and how it tells you the tonnage you've sunk! good luck Hunter Sub!

It is a World War II U-Boat simulation. You scope out the convoy - figure out what and how you want to attack - draw a line to set the sub's path - dive - surface - fire torpedoes - try to avoid the military ships when they come after you.

I tried write the game so that it could played as a quick casual game or also a more deep simulation. Each ship has its own characteristics - some can take more damage - some can turn and accelerate more.

Also added a career ranking score that keeps track of how you have done throughout your whole career and gives you an numerical ranking. I want to hook that up to an online ranking system like OpenFeint or something similar.

More later... Got to head off to a family get-together...

One other thing. I wanted to give it a 1940s feel so the music/artwork has a early 1940s World War II style.
