Tokyo Wars is a two-player arcade game from Namco that allows two players to control separate tanks. The player(s) can play either in a Japanese city or in a bay side dock. The tanks are identical except in color (green and gray).
Tokyo Wars is essentially the same game as Tank! The game concepts of Tank and Tokyo Wars are nearly identical - multiple players facing off in a maze with large avenues. It is only the technology that is different. The Super System 22 computing hardware that runs Tokyo Wars puts the player in the seat of a 50 ton battle tank, but when a heated game of Tank gets going, the fun and strategy is on a par with that of its descendant.
A game lasts for 15 minutes or until all opposing tanks are shot down. Games can be played either as a competition (player 1 versus player 2) or cooperatively on the same team against AI-controlled opponents. The player has to look in his or her monitor to find out whether he or she has vanquished the opposition.
Although only 2 players can play at a time, up to 4 machines can be interconnected to provide up to 4 players a chance to compete in tournament-style matches.
