What is Battle City?
Battle City is chaos. Battle City is hard. Battle City is challenging.
Battle City is the ultimate test of skill. The ultimate test of leadership. The ultimate test of teamwork.
Newbies are destroyed and torn to pieces…
You will be chewed up and spit out. There will be no mercy. Battle City is not user friendly.
This is a real-time action and strategy multiplayer game. You control a tank and your mission is to destroy enemy cities while defending your own.
Each city has a maximum of four players; 1 Mayor and 3 Commandos.
If you are the Mayor, your job is to build the city and hire a team of three Commandos.
If you are a Commando, your job is to join a city and orb the enemy!
Destroy or be destroyed. That’s what it’s all about…
