Gameplay Edit

The whole point of the game for the three players is avoid the mines that the solo player drops from above the pool in which they are swimming underwater. The three players have a life meter; if they stay underwater too long, they will float to the top to get air, making it easier for the solo player to drop mines on them. Whenever the solo player drops a mine on one of the other players, they will sink. When the one player drops mines on all the other players, he or she wins, but if the three players survive long enough, they win.

Intro/Ending Edit

Intro- The introduction shows the one player trying to drop a mine on the player in the middle of the pond, misses, and the player would go back to his or her place.

Ending- If the Solo player wins, he/she does his/her victory animation where he/she was standing. If the 3 players win, they do their victory animation in the water.
