Granada is a top-down shooter originally released on the X68000 home computer in 1990 and ported to the Sega Genesis later the same year. As with their previous Genesis release, Final Zone, Wolf Team developed and published the game in Japan and Renovation published it overseas.
The player occupies a powerful tank (or "maneuver cepter") named Granada and must eliminate targets by traversing a large open area in multiple directions and seeking them out. Destroying all critical enemies, which appear on a radar at the bottom right of the screen, summons the stage's boss which then needs to be defeated before the level is complete.
The game's controls work similarly as a twin-stick shooter, though with some caveats due to the limitations of the gamepad. Players can hold the A button to shoot and the D-pad to move, while using the B button to lock the tank's firing direction in place to keep pressure on a target. The C button fires a powerful but slow blaster shot with a recoil that knocks the Granada back a small distance.
