Nobody can doubt that a simple game can be lots of fun. You just need an interesting idea, like tanks shooting each other on destructible terrain, and there you are, with a great and original classic in your hands.

I always found it interesting that despite being a Japan-only game, this seems to have been well-known just about everywhere even long before the internet. From what people make it sound, this game was bootlegged on the level of a Mario!

This game is part of a pair with another FC game called Warpman. Both are remakes of early '80s arcade games, Tank Battalion and Warp & Warp. I quite like Warpman, maybe I should add it. On the other hand, I think W&W came out better than TB did, and sometimes I prefer it over Warpman; maybe I should write about it instead.

There's also a big 16-bit sequel to TB/BC called Tank Force, with some very nice music among other things; unfortunately, there's no level editor, as it's only ever been an arcade game.
