|“||Recover the sunken treasure.||”|
In this Game & Watch game, three divers in a boat are present. They have to get the content of a treasure underwater, but it is guarded by an octopus, who constantly moves his tentacles, in no pattern whatsoever. If one of the divers touches a tentacle, he loses a life. If all three lives are lost, the game ends.
In the modern version of the game in Game and Watch Gallery, the diver who collects the treasure is replaced by Mario, and Princess Peach sits in the boat. Mario gets slower as he gains more of the treasure, but he can throw the treasure to relieve himself of the weight. This can also stun the Octopus to make him retract his tentacles for a short time. When 200, 500 and 700 points are gained, a Lakitu will drop an extra life in the form of a heart. As all other modes, five skill stars in Game and Watch Gallery will unlock the Very Hard mode.
