some Tooltypes like NOCACHE, NOAUTOVEC, NOVBRMOVE, NOMMU, PAL or NTSC. If
that also fails, please inform the author via the Bug-Report-Form which

Such bad programming for an AGA game, this sets some kind of record.
Besides that, the game has a lot of colors, graphics are okay (I love the sea parallax),
music is good, menus are nice, and overall very well done. That's a PD game but really
approaching commercial quality. This is hard as nails too...
Coincidence: I loved Scuba Dive on Oric and will probably publish a remake on Windows using the
same shitty graphics as the Oric original.
