The attack tank improves upon the original charge shot with the ultimate weapon–the super charge shot. It cuts a swath of devastation through any armor. The defense tank features a shield that bounces back any attack. The hostiles have added new weapons like wave shots, scatter shots, lasers, and drills. Hover units unaffected by the terrain and a cloaking stealth system have also been added. Gargantuan tanks have also joined the enemy’s forces. The original’s weapon systems are back too, like ricochet, homing, and mortar-type shots. There are 90 stages in all (60 regular and 30 bonus stages)–20 more than the previous game. Strap yourself in and gear up for an intense, futuristic tank shooting war–the original was only the beginning.
