    TRIVIA
    Released in March 1981. Originally named 'Deep Death'.

    This game has a cassette that plays a loop. The loop lasts forty-five seconds, and consists of four voices (three male, one female) looking for, reacting to and trying to catch a shark. There's also some general references to diving on the tape.

    SCORING
    1st 4 divers eaten: 50 points each.
    5th diver: 300 points.
    6th-8th divers: 100 points.
    9th diver: 500 points.
    10th-12th divers: 200 points.
    13th diver: 700 points.
    14th-16th divers: 300 points.
    17th diver: 900 points.
    18th-20th diver: 400 points.
    21st diver: 1,300 points.
    22nd-24th diver: 500 points.
    25th diver: 1,750 points.
    26-28th diver: 750 points.

    Upon eating the twenty-eighth diver you get an extra shark and the scoring starts over at 50 points.
