People who ever had a Vectrex computer in the early 80's may know the game Armor Attack. The seventh MSXdev'11 entry, a megarom by the Spanish Asmsoft, may just bring back some memories to that old Vectrex game. The arena in M-Tanks has buildings to hide behind, and you are to shoot tanks. Naturally, being 2012 and being MSX, this game is colourful and features a catchy tune. Another difference is that M-Tanks has quite a few interesting game play options such as different game types and power ups. It's clearly a polished game. No matter where it ends up in the MSXdev'11 ranking, if there's to be a shoot-out, four mighty tanks will probably win that one by a mile!

3rd level with random scene... a bug?

Yes it's a bug. As I can see, random mode and cyclic mode are useless as they try to show scenes 11 and 12. There is no such scenes.

I am going to send the correction, though it stays out of contest.
