Videocart 2: Desert Fox

Platform: Channel F
Release Date: Dec 1976


This is the Channel F version of the classic tank battle game. There is enough in the mechanics of the game and the terrain to provide some strategy and edge. That being said the controls, in particular the rotating of the tank, were lacking. The slow response was quickly an annoyance. I highly recommend playing with a 2 or 5 minute timer. The hit counts will just keep going and roll over after 99. Adding the timer puts some pressure and an end to the game. While I can see this game being fun at the time it was released, its replay value is very low.
