A fun small screen tank battling game with retro DOS-like graphics.
In "Battle City X" your job as a tank is to defend your home territory - which is represented by a bird statue encased in brick. If the enclosure is broken down and the bird is shot, then all is unfortunately lost.
Fortunately, you (being a tank yourself) have the ability to shoot back at your tanky oppressors. By destroying a pre-set amount of them, you are deemed a worthy protector of the bird statue and are given more responsibility in a more dangerous part of town. The new areas (or "levels") frequently feature tougher enemies and new terrain.
Shooting tanks can become tedious (blasphemy!) so look out for glowing tanks which, when destroyed, produce a random bonus somewhere in the level.
Even with that, it could be said that the game lacks that certain something. The old saying, never judge a book by its cover is true even here, as you'll soon see, the game also comes with a two player option and a level editor.
Summary: It's small, neat, and does exactly what it should do. Recommended.
