Description[edit]

U-101 is a submarine simulator for Commodore 64 that was created 1986 by Mika Larramo in Sweden.

In this game you are a commander of an attack submarine and your mission is to fight surface ships that prepare to attack a country. There are 5 types of ships in the war zone: destroyers, battleships, aircraft carriers, cargo ships, and a depot ship where you can get more fuel and more torpedoes.

Design[edit]

The graphics is quite simple, but it is nevertheless a very functional and exciting submarine simulator. Below is a screen dump from the game.

Hints[edit]

The ship in the cyan color that is shown when the game starts is your depot ship. From this ship you can refuel and get more torpedoes, when needed. To be able to refuel and obtain more torpedoes, the distance to the ship must be less than 20 metres and the speed must be 0.

The game uses both joystick and keyboard to operate the submarine. The picture below shows the joystick commands and keyboard commands that the game uses.

Keyboard and joystick commands

When you press the R button, a radar is shown on the screen. On the radar you can see if there are other ships nearby. You can close the radar by pressing the Space bar.

Before you can launch a torpedo, it must be loaded in the torpedo tube. A torpedo will be loaded to the torpedo tube when you hit the T key on the keyboard. The green lamp to the right of the letter "T" on the screen will be lighted when a torpedo is loaded and ready to be fired.
