Atari Video Computer System / 2600


· If you move the joystick during the attract mode, you’ll hear the different tank engines sounds (as though you were playing the game).  After a game ends, you’ll only hear the engine idle sound.

· The max number of reserve tanks you can have is 12; any earned over that will not be counted.

· The max score is 144 tanks/12 squadrons (picture #1).  When you destroy the last tank, you see the usual message “ ENEMY SQUADRON DEFEATED BONUS 1 TANK” and the logo on the bottom will start rolling.  The screen will then go back to your current view for about 30 seconds before going into its normal attract mode.

· BUG: The day counter will reset to 0 once you reach 100 days, so the next day after “99d” will be “0d” (picture #2)!  {Scott Stilphen}

· FRYING: Creates an easy level in which the only damage your tank can receive is to the treads. Fry until you get to a night scene. The game will already be in play mode.  The tank’s sights and the background will be distorted.  The enemy tanks will always move in a clock-wise circle around you and only occasionally fire.  Approach them when they appear in the upper-right part of the radar screen.  {Scott Stilphen}
