Game Introduction

This game is two player only.

Game Play

Move through the maze and destroy all enemy tanks. If the tank you are in is destroyed, you must move a little flashing spot (your driver?) through the maze to another of you tanks. This proves very frustrating as you can only see the flashing spot when it is against a wall. This may have been the way the game was originally or maybe something not right in the ROM I was using. To switch tanks on purpose (before the current one is destroyed), hold the "Change tank" button then move your joystick. Then you can release the button and go to another tank.
