Subbania is an HTML5-based battle between a Nazi submarine and Hell's sea monsters

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

Nazis and the twisted denizens of Hell have been cannon fodder for countless video games, but in Subbania, a new game coded entirely in Javascript and HTML5, the two staple enemies battle against each other in undersea, submarine-versus-sea monster combat.

Subbania is the culmination of a two-year development cycle to bring the game to Chrome and Firefox. It's minimal in its presentation; the game's visuals are pure black and white, but it manages to pull off a few interesting lighting and screen filter effects. Artistically, the game appears to be full of interesting characters and monsters.

The game's creator boasts of 118 levels, 25 songs and "so many enemies and entities that I'm not even going to bother counting them." Subbania costs $2.99 through the Chrome Web Store or as a direct purchase payable through PayPal from developer ektomarch's website.
