    Polar Rescue © 1983 GCE [General Consumer Electric]

    Journey to the icy waters beneath the North Pole. As commander of a powerful and highly maneuverable submarine, you must rescue the survivors of an ill-fated expedition.

    Seek out the survivors on your sonar screen and pilot your sub to their rescue! To complete your mission, you must avoid deadly mine fields, enemy submarines and the terror of the maelstrom! Monitor your oxygen supply carefully and hurry! Lives are at stake!

    You can being Polar Rescue at any of four different skill levels. Level 1 is the least difficult; Level 4 is the most difficult.

    Your goal in Polar Rescue is to successfully maneuver your submarine in the icy waters beneath the North Pole and rescue the survivors of an illfated mission. You'll battle enemy subs, blow up and avoid mine fields and ice chunks, even experience the powerful maelstroms -- turbulent underwater whirlpools that throw you off course. There's no escape from a maelstrom... you get out only when it throws you out of its powerful center! As you become more proficient and advance to higher skill levels, your sub will have to travel further to get to the survivors and you may encounter more and more enemy subs!
