The tank intact
The idea behind the game is similar to the old laser tag game: shoot your opponent, and extinguish the lights on his tank before he extinguishes yours.
But there's a twist. If you get hit, you get an 18-volt shock through your controller. The remotes have forward and reverse controls for each of your tank's treads, as well as triggers on the top back to fire your weapon.
