    Short summary describing this game.

    Tank Battalion last edited by reverendhunt on 05/27/20 07:58PM View full history


    In Tank Battalion, players must navigate a basic maze while shooting tanks and avoiding being hit. A flashing base must also be defended. If the base is hit, the game ends, regardless of how many lives the player has left. Players can shoot their own base, effectively ending their own game within seconds.

    Each level will spawn in waves of tanks, and players must destroy 20 tanks to advance a level. An extra life is awarded at 10,000 points.

    Release History

    The game received a sequel/spiritual successor/remake for the Famicom, Battle City. It also received an arcade sequel in 1991 titled Tank Force. These games comprise a loose continuity known as the Tank Battalion series.

    Tanks A Lot for the Emerson Arcadia 2001 is an unlicensed clone of Tank Battalion.
