About The Game
Tank Battalion is a multi-directional arcade video game shoot-em-up.
The player, controlling a tank, must destroy 20 enemy tanks in each level, which enter the play-field from the top of the screen. The enemy tanks attempt to destroy the player's base (represented on the map as an eagle), as well as the player's tank. A level is completed when the player destroys all 20 enemy tanks, but the game ends if the player's base is destroyed or the player loses all his lives.
Released in October 1980.
Tank Battalion is the first war game from Namco.
A Tank Battalion unit appears in the 1982 movie 'Jekyll & Hyde... Together Again'.
