Old Game I Don't Know the Name of

It's come time for me to finally ask the forum for the name of a game. It's the only nameless game left in my mind, and my Google skills are failing me.

I believe the game was for DOS, maybe around 1993. You were a submarine (possibly yellow) searching for things. I believe it was a puzzle and/or exploration game. The perspective was 2D, with a static sideview of different areas.

That's all I remember. Thanks in advance!

(Mods, if this thread should be somewhere else, please let me know. Thanks.)

    Is it 688 Attack Sub?

    Nope, although that was also on my computer at the time. In the game I mentioned, you can see your submarine at all times as you explore different areas. Thanks though.

    Yellow submarine... exploration?

    Would you be speaking of SubCulture, featuring three-inch tall, three-fingered Rastafarians?

    Edit: Dur, way to read the first post, me! Sorry, I missed the "2-D, Dos-Based" parts.

    Okay so I looked through all the games on the MobyGames link, Treasures of the Deep, Dr. Riptide, and Sub Culture, and I don't believe it is any of them. The game I am thinking of seems to be a mix of Treasures of the Deep and Discoveries of the Deep in terms of tone I think; what I forgot to mention before is that this game has a light tone to it, rather than most other submarine games that are about destroying other subs. Also, it may have been somewhat educational.

    Thanks for all the suggestions so far. I don't think it's Treasures of the Deep because I only find that one on PSX, and Discoveries of the Deep I can't find a freeware download for to check it out (and there are no screenshots except for cover art).

    Edit: Dr. Riptide looks the closest to what I am thinking of in terms of perspective.

    Oh, and let me add that Challenge of the Ancient Empires rocked. Thanks for bringing that back to memory.

    Thanks for reminding me about this game. This one was pretty cool on my old 386.

    Challenge of the Ancient Empires didn't even have water.

    Guys if you are alive or whatever
    The game name is "In search of Dr. Riptide"

    The OP had already confirmed it's Operation Neptune. As well as that it's specifically not Dr. Riptide.

    But neither are games I've ever heard of so that's neat.
