This is one of
those fun little two player games that only was ported to the
Vectrex. Which is too bad as it is a very good two player game.
Not much of a one player game, but a good two player game.
This time you are an army jeep and
it is your job to take out tanks and helicopters. Doesn't seem
fair to me, but you do have an advantage over the tanks. As you
can probably guess, you are much faster and more mobile then
they are. This is good as they can take you out with one shot.
But they are the least of your problems. Much worse and quite a
bit more unpredictable is the helicopter. That's right, death
rains from above and this is one pain in the keister. It flies
in swiftly and goes right after you. You can shoot it down, but
it is a much harder target to hit than the tanks. Most of your
frustrations will be targeted it at the helicopter and
Your playfield is a maze that is
made up of destroyed buildings. There is a screen that you must
download and put unzip into your "Artwork" folder. Without this,
the game is practically unplayable as you cannot see where the
buildings are and you are driving around blindly. So make sure
to install this before you play the game.
As I mentioned before, the main
draw of this game is the two player mode. With two of you
working together, the odds seem a little better. You can
actually use some strategies like have one person distract a
tank, while the other comes around behind him and blows him
away. Plus, two sets of guns will make quicker work of the pesky
All in all, it is a very fun
game. By yourself, it won't keep your interest for long, but
with a friend it will be a very fun experience. So lock and load
and get ready to kick some metal butt!
