Description of the Game

2D submarine game. The player commands the submarine USS Tautog (SS-199) as it conducts unlimited action against the Imperial Japanese Navy and Merchant ships during WWII.


Software Development Description

I had 6 weeks to design and develop the game. Of course all of this time came after time at work and with my family. The time frame was entirely too short for this undertaking. I need an additional 12 weeks.
