WinDepth is an excellent modern fanmade version of Atari's classic Depth Charge submarine-sinking game. The idea is simple: you control a battleship that drops depth charges from the surface to destroy submarines down below. Since the charges take some time travelling down, timing is essential. When a submarine is hit, its explosion will destroy any other submarine in the vicinity of the explosive fireball. This means you can create a chain of explosions (and get massive combo points bonus in the process) if your timing is good enough. You start out with a limited number of charges, but you can quickly replenish your supply if you're accurate – each submarine you destroy will give you one new charge.

As in the original Depth Charge, the challenges you face grow with each new level. You have to dodge mines from submarines, as well as homing missiles in the later levels. From time to time, you will qualify for air support – an airplane will fly overhead and release bombs. After every few levels, you will be awarded with a bonus level: rows of submarines in neat formations that can be taken out in one strike. Crisp and colorful graphics round off this excellent fanmade remake that you shouldn't pass up on. Two thumbs up, way up!
