DescriptionSubmit Description
Save the Whales was intended to be part one of a trio of games whose proceeds were to benefit various environmental groups. Save the Whales was going to benefit Green Peace, but the game was never released and no funds were raised. The other games were Dutch Elm Defender and Attack of the Baby Seals, although neither of those two were ever programmed.

You control a submarine whose mission is to protect the whales at the bottom of the screen from the whaling ship at the top of the screen. Harpoons and nets are thrown down at the whales and you must shoot them before they hit the whales or your submarine. You can take five hits before the game is over and all the whales die.
