The game was set on a plain with a mountainous horizon featuring a memorable erupting volcano, distant crescent moon, and various geometric solids (in vector outline) like pyramids and blocks. The player viewed the screen, which included an overhead radar view to find and destroy the rather slow tanks, or the faster moving supertanks. Saucer-shaped UFOs and guided missiles would occasionally appear for a bonus opportunity. The saucers differed from the tanks in that they did not fire upon the player, and would not appear on radar.
