Tank Commander

Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to take your tank into enemy country and blow up the fuel and ammunition dump. Sounds like a piece of cake? Apart from mines and swamps, a few enemy tanks and a fighter jet, it's plain sailing - or plain tanking.

The nice thing about this game is that you can take your time and use a little strategy. Actually, this isn't optional: tanks don't exactly speed along and manoeuvring is pretty sluggish. And don't fire too often. You've got a limited amount of shells (displayed at the bottom of the screen).

Nice features include a screen that scrolls both horizontally and vertically, there's a one or two player option and the instructions provided are pretty comprehensive. Not a classic but a nice alteration to manic zapping.
