Game Title:
Aces of the Deep
Release Date: xx-xx-1994
Release Number: 1
Series: Dynamix Simulations

Description:  Take command of a U-Boat in WWII and hunt down and destroy allied convoys. This is never an easy task, their escorts and aircraft are waiting to ruin your day.  Campaigns can be started in one of several time slots, allowing you to play for the entire war if you wish. Specific missions aren't required because the engine "rolls up" convoys and targets, meaning every time you play the missions will change.  (From Mobygames description)

Alternate Releases:

Roberta Williams, who designed Sierra's first game, Mystery House in 1980, felt it was time to write another murder mystery which lived up to the computer capabilities of the late eighties. Mystery House, which was put on public domain in 1988, was the first computer game ever with graphics, but it lacked colors, animation and sound. The Colonel's Bequest was developed, using EGA graphics, Sierra's SCI engine, sound and a music score, as well as featuring a deeper plot and more detailed character descriptions.

The game has a sequel, The Dagger of Amon Ra, which is also the last Laura Bow game. Both games are also included in the 1997 King's Quest Collection and the Roberta Williams Anthology. Although the original release of The Colonel's Bequest can still relatively easily be found on online auctions, a complete original game is considered as a true collector's item, as it contains many goodies which are often missing from second-hand sales, particularly the Laura Bow pen and notebook. The games copyright protection is also quite original: the gamer needs to use a magnifying glass (included in the box) to identify a fingerprint on the game screen.

Truly was the golden ages of games.  The book, the interviews, and the game it self was amazing!  I spend untold hours reading and playing!  Cannot do that today.

Hi, I might be wrong but I think Sierra were the first to produce a serious submarine simulation.I have an original game with spiral manual but sadly I have lost the map. I have Aces Of the Deep as well as Command Aces of The Deep. I am unable to play them now as computers and simulations have moved on. At the moment I am trying to get into Silent Hunter 5 but find it very complicated and frustrating. Bring back Aces Reborn.Regards Phill
