The year is 1999, and the earth's nations have just finished drafting a world-wide
peace plan. But there's a problem with the proposed truce. A council of insane military
commanders has unleashed battalions of automated weapons into the countryside.
These aerial fighters, flying saucers, tanks, and supertanks will turn the world into
a lifeless desert unless you can stop them.
Luckily, you've discovered an old military tank hidden inside a museum. Use your
Joystick to steer the tank as you search out the enemy automatons.
Since your electronic periscope only gives you a front view from the tank, you'll have
to rely heavily on your radar screen to detect the enemy. If you see a blip on the radar,
you'll need to move fast. Turn your tank until the enemy appears on the screen and fire.
You begin the game with five tanks.

Their sole project was Computer Space before the company was incorporated as Atari, Inc. in 1972 (California).
