Another new entry to the silver range lands on my desk, and I see this time the famous motto on the back reads "Grab your harpoon and rid the seven seas of the man-eating sharks".

Looking at the back of the packaging, I thought this game looked like the old arcade great Sea Wolf. But I was definitely mistaken on loading the game.

This game looks set to make C16 owners fall straight to sleep. Yes, it's really boring and is a disgrace to the computer games market. Even though I hate this game I'll tell you what to do in it.

Basically, you must shoot the shark. Surprise, surprise, and that's it, on to the next screen. The only difficulty being you have to shoot it on the cross which is amazingly tattooed on the shark's belly.

When you complete a level your diver will swim up to collect his/her air bonus and you will start all over again.
