A side-scrolling shoot'em up in which the player controls a tank and an helicopter. Some targets can only be destroyed by the tank, and the helicopter is needed to repair bridges. The game manual says:
"The peace summit was successful. An arms treaty has been signed. All medium range missiles have been destroyed... except for two which have been captured by a group of Terrorists who plan to destroy the Western World unless their fellow terrorists are released from a penitentiary in the United States.
Your task, as a mercenary employed by the United States Government, is to capture the terrorist bases in their desert outposts - Battle Valley - and eliminate the two missiles."
