C > COLECO  > Combat!   


An original system with it's army design. It plays a classic combat game found on some of "Pong generation" systems... The two player game and its 4 variations are built-in the AY-3-8700-1 chipset from General Instruments. This game could also be found on some cartridge systems based on the GI chipsets.

The two-handed joystick controls simulate the commands, just like in a real tank. Each set is fitted with a fire button on top of the right stick. There is a reset button, an on/off switch and game selection switch (from 1 to 4). There are even suction cup feet to secure the console to the table.

It's got two seperate HP, one for tank engine sounds and the other one for weapon firing sounds.

Promotional sentences:
