Deep Combat is a Silverlight application,
meaning there's no program to download and install, just
like with Flash. You may be prompted to download Microsoft's

button and be playing, in your browser, in seconds!
Deep Combat supports Firefox, IE and Safari on Windows and
MacOS. Click the red button above to play!

Each ship recharges one energy per turn; shooting takes two energy and everything else takes one. Shields reduce damage taken by 50% when they're on. You can shoot forward with the top launcher in the list or backward with the bottom one. A little indicator appears showing where your torpedo will fire from when you give the order to fire, but it can be hard to see.||
