The Panzadrome is an island packed full of vicious robot tanks. Your mission is to destroy it. Unfortunately you begin your mission outnumbered by over 200-1 and definitely outgunned.

You start at one of the island's factories that are spread throughout the landscape and are essential to your success in the game as it is to them that you go for quick repairs and for upgrade kits which can rapidly convert your puny tank into a killing machine.

However, it will take you several tanks worth of game to fight your way past the other tanks and gun emplacements to find another factory. Here you replace your single shot cannon with real gun as well as patch up the inevitable damage before heading back into battle.


Fight your way through to a second factory and you might find a mortar attachment, turret mine layer or perhaps a polycrete module that is used to fill in the craters that are now peppering the island.

This may seem a little strange as you're supposed to be destroying the island, but a crater always seems to block the path you want to use. If such a departure from the normal mindless destruction makes you feel uneasy, you can always shoot up the path and the surrounding area after you passed through.

This relaxing mixture of strategy, arcade skill and mindless violence is sure to be a success.
