Dust off your field glasses and scan the horizon for enemy tanks. There's one -- grinding its way out of the woods!

You see each other at the same time. Both turrets swing toward their targets. Who will fire a split second sooner? And who will be reduced to a pile of rubble?

When you've beaten your opponent, move on to a new battlefield. There are literally hundreds of new terrains to conquer!

War may be nerve-wracking, but this is pure fun!

  • Two players
  • Hundreds of different battlefields
  • Exceptional sound effects


One of the original four games released in thest markets in 1979

An M Network version of the game, called Armor Ambush, was released for the Atari 2600.

FUN FACT: The game actually made it pretty far through the production phase with the title "Tanks-A-Lot" before some Mattel bigwigs pronounced the name "stupid" and made APh change it. David Rolfe (Major League Baseball) avers, however, that the name wasn't APh's idea - it had been attached to the original concept art that came from Mattel.
