   This multi-directional shooter has you controlling a tank which can
shoot missiles at any moving target. You start off with just one missile
but can shoot powerup icons that will increase your firepower with
multiple missiles. You move the tank around in what looks like sort of a
battlefield and blast away all moving enemies while trying to find one
building that has the only exit from the level. There are many buildings
and other obstacles that you must move your tank around because you can't
drive through them, but only one has the exit.

   The levels start off easy but will quickly become harder with more and
faster moving enemies. The levels also become bigger and you will have to
drive around a lot before you find the exit. Powering up your firepower is
almost a must and thankfully there are many icons to shoot for this

   The graphics and sounds are only average but the gameplay is very
addictive. This isn't your average shoot'em up, it feels and plays
different, instead of having enemies whizz around trying to kill you, you
go looking for the enemies to kill. One shot will disable an enemy tank
and the second shot will destroy it. The enemies can also shoot in any
direction but with quick manuevering you can hopefully avoid their bullets.

   In conclusion, I don't know why I like this game so much, it doesn't
have fancy graphics or sounds, it could be mistaken for a good PD game,
but it has the all important gameplay! The game is very fair, meaning you
die only because YOUR skills are not good enough, not because the game put
you in an impossible situation. The game is not fast paced but more of a
relaxing shoot'em up, don't let this put you off however because the game
is fun! Want a different kind of shoot'em for a change? then check out
Future Tank, you might just like it, I know I do.
