    Super Tank © 1981 Video Games, GmbH.

    Super Tank is a shooter where you control a tank and have to clear a field of mines and bushes. You are chased by enemy tanks, which fire at you. After wiping out all the mines and bushes, you reach the second level. It is kind of a 'boss' level, where you have to fight a big enemy tank, the Super Tank. You can destroy it by a direct hit into its gun.

    TRIVIA
    Video Games GmbH started as an unauthorized bootleg manufacturer founded by Mr. Reinhard Stompe. When the European countries changed their laws to protect the original creators, they started to develop their own arcade games. However, only two original games from Video Games GmbH are known to exist: Super Tank (1981) and "Looping" (1982). Video Games GmbH was sold to Ican Data GmbH (Munich) in 1987 for US $10 million.

    PORTS
    There is a 1986 Sega SG-1000 game of the same name that shares many similarities with this game (including the boss tank, though it is executed differently).
