This game mimics a classic 80s gamestyle: the side-scrolling tank shmup. The setting is 1984 and you control an atomic tank that is trying to destroy the forces of the Red Star. You can move the tank back and forth, as well as adjust the angle of your targeting reticule. Power-ups are picked up in order to grant new powers for your tank.
There are 19 levels and two game types: Mission Mode (you are given 3 lives to get through the levels) and Survival Mode (you are only given one life to get as far as possible.)
