Major Istar: Under the Doomed Sea It is the early 21st century in this adventure and you are Major Camerion J. Istar. You are aboard a futuristic submarine when you receive an urgent SOS from the deep sea Trident research dome. Your challenges will be a little different in MAJOR ISTAR: Under the Doomed Sea. In addition to the normal graphical text adventure you will also face three (3) arcade style event sequences requiring a joystick. Your goal is to solve the mystery regarding the SOS transmission and save the research facility.

This graphical interactive fiction/arcade game uses standard single letter direction N,S,E,W,U,D for movement and a joystick at certain stages. You can also SAVE your current location to diskette/cassette for restart later. The command parser is a standard verb noun type. [source:mobygames]
