📕 Description [en]

The all-new Silent Service II A State Of The Art Simulation Of Submarines In World War II.

The original Silent Service was released in 1985. It won ” Simulation of the Year” honours in six nations and was voted “Best Adventure Game for the Home Computer” by the Academy of Adventure Gaming Arts and Design in 1986.

Now Silent Service II updates the classic with latest advances in sound, graphics and game design, including new targets and scenarios.


🌍️ Wikipedia:
Silent Service II is a submarine simulation game released in 1990 for DOS and ported in 1991 to the Amiga. The game is set in the Pacific Ocean during World War II, and is the sequel to 1985's Silent Service.

Gameplay

Silent Service II allows the player to choose either single scenarios (training, a single historical battle, or a single random encounter war patrol) or an extended war career.

In the career mode the player undertakes a number of consecutive patrols in the submarine, meeting other ships or convoys in unscripted encounters generated by the game. The player is able to select a home port and a patrol area on a map of the Pacific Ocean, and time acceleration allowed the submarine to move quickly to the chosen area. The length of each patrol was limited by the submarine's available fuel, but a typical war career could still take several hours of play time to complete.

Common encounters involve the detection of a merchant ship or convoy, with the player determining whether and how to attack. On other occasions the player might face sudden detection by warships and be forced to act quickly to escape.

Several different viewpoints are available during play, including the bridge, the periscope - which could be used either submerged or surfaced - the navigation area displaying the area map, and internal status displays. Other ships are displayed as sprites in the bridge or periscope views, the game being capable of displaying graphics in 256 colours.
