[Coco] My first CoCo game in years is ready!

Years ago I had lots of books with programs and games in "generic" BASIC.
A very nice one was about trying to sink a submarine that is moving in a
reticle. You input the coordinates were you think it is, and you get an
indication of how far off your shot was.
But being a "generic" program it was text only.
So I finally migrated it to full CoCo2 graphics and sound.
The game uses the joystick as aiming device, but to release the depth
charge, you must use the "C" key (problems with the emulator and my
laptop kept me from using the mouse button)
BTW. I have no way (yet) to try it in a real CoCo, so any feedback would
be greatly appreciated.
Next project... the same for CoCo 3
For anyone who wants to try it:
