From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

   Submarine Commander is a 1982 Shoot 'em up video game developed by Atari for the Atari 2600 and released under the Sears Tele-Games label. The game was one of three developed by Atari exclusively for Sears, the others being Stellar Track and Steeplechase. It was based on the Midway arcade game Sea Wolf II that was played with a periscope.
   The player controls a submarine going through enemy territory. The player must shoot targets in order to win the game. The player views the action via a periscope that can be rotated through 360 degrees - a rarity for the time. Information provided to the player includes a radar scope, a depth-charge-detector, a fuel gauge, and an engine temperature gauge for detecting engine-overheating. There are eight modes of play, made up of single and two-player mode and four different levels of difficulty for each.
