In Rob Reiner's 1984 cult classic movie, This Is Spinal Tap, keyboardist Viv Savage plays this game on an original TRS-80 Color Computer while on the bus. Lead singer David St. Hubbins is at the front of the bus trying to escape from his girlfriend, by saying, "Yeah, but they got the new game back there. Thought I'd have a look at the new game. It's like a submarine thing." (scene 18 on the DVD).
