While the market penetration sounds like it was limited, per Dan’s comments, I for one enjoyed this game immensely. This was the first strategy game that got my adrenalin pumping and in a sense was an early foray into the RTS genre. I broke many joysticks trying to get my units on the board to counter an opponents move and for anyone looking for a challenging real-time strategy game for the 8-biy Atari this is it! In every case I can recall sitting back and feeling a little exhausted after each match and just when you think you have the game mastered, the AI would always come back and kick your butt back to PacLand. Kudos on this game Dan. It is an unsung hero in the strategy game genre and like many early ground breaking games, it never got the attention it deserved.
If this game ever comes up on this site I will be once again be ending the lives of many a controller.

It is true, you can build and command units, battle against computer or a player. Command and conquer in it's genesis stage. One friend destroyed his joystick after being beaten, I expected him to win, the moral is dont laugh at losers when they shout "wagons Ho!!" and then get chewed up by superior strategy.
