In the manual, they suggest avoiding the enemies and collecting the divers.  That is one possible strategy, but between the fact it nets you fewer points and the fact it takes longer for divers to appear, I suggest shooting first and asking questions later.

 

Another tip: When the interference sub starts appearing, it's best to resurface with your crew at the far left side of the screen if the interference sub isn't onscreen.  That way, if it does appear, you'll have more time to avoid it.  If you're about to resurface when the interference sub is already onscreen, I suggest pulling up behind it and resurfacing.

And don't forget to shoot second and third before asking questions... in fact, don't even bother asking questions.

Darn right about that! Sharks don't talk, and the enemy sub pilots aren't up for talking either!

 

But hell if I ain't getting better now!

Does it matter which version we play? I noticed the one I just played and posted a picture for says "Digivision" instead of "Activision."

You left my score off the list.  But that's ok I should do better before the week is over.

96,640 One of my faves BITD!


I didnt lose my first sub til 60,350...then I lost 4 subs in under a minute.

If you listen to Fergs Atari 2600 podcast, I tell a good Seaquest story on episode 35 (not the Seaquest episode but it ties in) about getting the Seaquest patch.

I'll contradict myself but sometime you have to stop shooting. If you kill a shark right on the edge of the screen with a swimmer also next to the screen there is a chance it will run away from you.

This might be obvious to a lot of you but for the others, you want to finish each level on a single tank. Since point reward goes up every level and difficulty goes up every air refill, you want difficulty to raise as little as possible (1 for 1). Catch your swimmers too slow you gotta go back for air, the game gets harder but you don't get more points.

P.s. Still haven't beaten my first score but I'm working on it.

They are very dumb swimmers. Not only are they not swimming towards rescue, they'd rather run instead of swim. See, I'm not wrong, they are.

Shoot the stuff.  Grab the divers.  Don't suffocate.  Seems easy enough.

Actually, when a swimmer turns the other way, it means they're swimming from sharks coming towards them.

AllI know is the GBA version seems a bit stingy with sending out divers.

I figured as much but since the sharks can scare them before they show up on the TV, it feels like the swimmers are just too dumb to live.

Yeah, its only 1,300 points more, but getting here again still makes me want to do a virtual Rocky run up the Philadelphia steps.

Peter Nadalin - nice Seaquest score; you deserve your bonus points by breaking a new 2600 HSC record ;) :) ;-)
