One player controls a large, slow tank, while the team players have small, faster tanks. The large tank has ten hit points, while the smaller ones have three each. The goal of the three small tanks is to defeat the large tank, while the large one's goal is to destroy the small ones.


All players stand in front of their tanks as their respective winning/losing animations play; any eliminated tank appears wrecked with smoke coming out of it.


  • Control Stick – Move
  • A Button – Fire

In-game text[edit]

  • Rules"One player drives a big tank while the other 3 team up in smaller tanks. Last team standing is the winner!"
