Battle (Arcadia 2001)

Postby VideoGameCritic » March 11th, 2021, 9:06 pm

I've been writing a review for this game, but when I tried to look up its publisher and year I can't find anything about it!

All I could find was this YouTube video

It's a tank game a bit like Combat, except your little solider can run around a fleet of tanks, controlling one at a time.

Was this an actual release or some unpublished prototype? Any info would be appreciated.

It seems familure, but thats probably just because Arcadia games have a certain look.

I can't find it listed on the cart lists I usually use, tho they're old, & probably out-of-date, & I don't know if the game had another name in another language:

I'll ask on AtariAge; maybe someone there knows what this is.

Apparently it's a German game.

According to this --

-- I guess the publisher is UA Ltd. but the exact release year is unknown?

This is helpful guys - thank you! For the year I think I can hazard a guess at 1982 or 1983. I'm not sure if my program accepts question marks for that field!

Just put a note in the review that the game’s so obscure you’re not sure about the date it was published.
