Machines have taken over. Corporate greed and rapid technological advancments have made humans pawns of their own creations. Command a tank that can change into four different types of vehicles a Tank, A hovertank, a Amphibious tank, and a Submarine. Fight through six missions of Tank blasting action on your way to destroying Megacorp!
