Vous incarnez le capitaine d'un bateau de récupération étant sur le point de découvrir un trésor caché dans une épave.
The game has 4 different shipwrecks. Each time you start a new game, one shipwreck is chosen automatically by the computer, so every time you restart you usually face a different challenge. The shipwrecks are:
The "SAO VERA", a Portuguese cargo vessel sunk in 1698.
The H.M.S."INTRANSIGENT", a British frigate sunk in 1766.
"THE FIANNA" (ex.name"GLORIA DIEU"), a British tea clipper sunk in 1887.
And the S.S."LEVIATHAN", an American express steamship (which looked like the Titanic) sunk in 1916 by a German warship.
