Up Scope, Grand Products, 1986

Shooting torpedoes

Similar to the Jet Rocket from 1970, this arcade game immediately stands out. No big screen or joystick but a small window and two handles mounted on a periscope. The mission can't be more simple: Shoot away the submarine hunters with torpedos or go into fight with them while firing depth bombs at you. Up Scope runs on an Commodore Amiga 500 motherboard with an add-on EPROM daughterboard.
