Crash Dive is a 1983 shooter for the Atari 2600 console in which you control a special flying submarine, eliminate enemies and collect treasures. Your mission is to score as many points as possible by destroying enemy ships, helicopters, planes, giant sharks, sting rays, squids, angler fish and lobsters before running out of fuel or crashing the flying sub. You may also acquire points by picking up the treasures that lie on the bottom of the sea.
You begin each adventure with three flying submarines in reserve. If you are able to fill the prize indicator at the bottom of the sea with six treasures, you will be awarded an extra life. The fuel gauge is located at the bottom of the screen. Keep your eye on it. Refueling is asccomplished by docking with the mother ship, the Sea View (the submarine at the top of the sea). The fuel supply gained is proportional to the amount of time docked with the Sea View.
