[Game 9]


Sewer Sam



Sewer Sam by Interphase 1983
SEWER SAM is a trouble shooter for the City Works Department. There's something going on down in the sewer system and SAM has been sent to investigate. Unfortunately, threatening nasties hide in the tunnels. Watch out, SAM! You will choose SAM's passage through the maze and will aim his trusty six shooter. The more nasties that you are able to shoot, the higher you will score. Somewhere in the maze, lurk the super-nasties...three enemy submarines that have invaded the city sewer system. SEWER SAM must destroy these intruders to complete his job!

This game is soooooooooo slow on Level 1, so I'm opening it up now for PLAYERS CHOICE. Play whatever level you want. Just say what Level you are playing, highest overall score regardless of level gets the record.... ?

My Sewer Sam Update: So I tried to do some stuff a little differently last night. Tried more than anything to get to the submarine. Because up until last night I believed the submarine was a myth. Lol I now know the sub actually REALLY exists..... HINT: YOU HAVE TO BE IN A WATER SEWER!!! :P :P :P 


I battled the sub many times and eventually I defeated one. See pic of Sam battling the sub below..... ?


Believe it or not, battling the sub actually makes this BAD game more playable. Now it's just 'not so bad', HAHAHAHAHHAA!!!!! ?
