Name This Game
Atari 2600 - A2600

You've just discovered a treasure at the bottom of the sea, and now it's up to you to protect it! You control a diver at the bottom of the screen and there are giant octopuses and sharks to deal with. Every time an octopus tentacle touches the bottom of the screen or a shark catches your treasure will be lost. To deal with these creatures, your harpoon diver. You have to make sure you shoot the shark before he can make it to the bottom of the screen and catch you (the shark will reappear at the top of the screen every time he is shot.) The octopus will have tentacles going down; every time a tentacle is shot it will retreat towards the top, so you have to shoot at the tentacles before it reaches the bottom. Of course, your diver has a limited supply of air. Your companion is in a boat on the surface, and sometimes throw an overhead line down. You must catch this one to replenish air before it runs out (if you run out of air, some treasure will be lost). The game ends when you have lost all your treasures.
