Description official descriptions

In 2005, aliens have taken over Antarctica. You are sent in to combat them with the new super tank, the Slye-Hicks MX-100, Codename: Arcticfox.

Arcticfox is a futuristic-based 3D tank simulation game where your overall goal is to destroy the invading aliens' main fortress before Arcticfox is destroyed.

Enemy targets come in all sorts of shapes and sizes: planes, tanks, recon sleds and other important targets such as communication towers, atmosphere converters, etc. Your state-of-the-art killing machine is equipped with a cannon, guided missiles and mines at your disposal in addition to radar and forward/aft view-screens to detect your enemy advances.

Copy protection

The PC version of Arcticfox features on-disk copy protection. Should the copy protection check fail, the title screen would load but any attempt to start the game or enter the enemy preview mode and the game will return right back to the title screen.


Arcticfox is one of the few PC titles that supports 16 colors exclusively in Tandy mode.
