Get ready for intense submarine combat!

Your submarine is the first line of defense against fleets of invading enemy war ships. It's your job to patrol the sea in your sector and sink any boat that tries to enter the territorial waters established by your government.

The enemy fleets will not go down without a fight, however, so you'll have to evade depth charges and missiles, as well as enemy submarines deployed to take you out as soon as you fall within the range of their torpedoes! And last but not least, you will encounter destroyers that will engage you directly with daring naval looping maneuvers!

Stay alive long enough with your missiles and torpedoes to beat your high score, in this faithful adaptation of the classic Sega arcade game!

While I was working on the Budget Series project in 2016 and 2017, I decided to add an 18th game to that series, namely Champion Pro Wrestling. This 18th game was kept a secret and was included in the shipping box as a surprise free gift for everyone who ordered 10 or more budget games. In order to release this 18th game as a fully complete-in-box item, I needed more of the custom styrofoam inserts which I had used for the other 17 budget games. The minimum order quantity required by the styrofoam company was rather high, but it got me thinking: Perhaps I could put all those extra inserts to good use.

I talked to Mystery Man about this, and I suggested that he could port 8 different SG-1000 games to the ColecoVision, and that these ports could be sold exclusively via the AtariAge Store, using the same kind of two-piece boxes that were used for the budget series. After reaching an agreement with Albert over at AtariAge, Mystery Man performed the ports, including this port of N-Sub.

However, after the ports were beta-tested by trusted collaborators, the project stayed mostly in limbo for the following two years, and after finishing the work on a batch of "standard" Team Pixelboy titles in 2019, I decided to revive the project by taking full control of it. If all goes as planned, N-Sub and the other 7 games of this special series (which I like to call the "Mystery Man Collection") will be released in 2020 in limited quantities (85 copies to be exact). No more copies will ever be produced after this.
