Where To Get It



Full machine code programming brings all the speed and excitement associated with this all time favourite arcade classic.

Playing The Game

You sit at the controls of an advanced battletank, looking out on the battlefield of the future. Your mission is to contain the armoured spearhead of the enemy strike force rolling relentlessly forward across the plain before you. The enemy's remote controlled tanks are of two types, their standard battle tanks and the deadly super tanks. These are both controlled from the enemy's mobile fire control saucers, which may be seen moving low over the battlefield. A direct hit on a saucer will force it to retire from the battlezone and fly away to safety.

The various objects scattered around the plain can be used as cover, as shells fired at them will detonate on impact and leave them undamaged. The most dealy weapon which will be employed against your tank is an air-launched, terrain following anti-tank missile. These will appear ahead of your tank and zig-zag towards you, skipping over any objects in their path. These missiles must be destroyed before they reach your tank, as they never miss their targets.

Good luck!!
