Altercation - A new NES game based on some elements of Combat and Asteroids from the Atari 2600

While we wait for the BIG news announcement later today for the Amiga, here's one game to keep you company if you have a NES however, is Scott the phd's game Altercation. A rather enjoyable looking tank game that doesn't just feature a campaign mode with 9 levels, but also a 2P Multiplayer with 4 arenas, and if you need a little bit of help, a practice mode via multiplayer arenas. To coincide with this news, NES & SNES CONNECTION has released a video below (link).

As mentioned via the forums : Altercation is a game based on some elements of Combat and Asteroids which was released for the Atari 2600 way back in the late 70's by Atari Inc. The player controls a tank that when hit splits into smaller tanks, all controlled by the same input. Smaller tanks of the same size can merge again. Tiny tanks are fast and harder to hit, and better for stealth maneuvers, but more challenging to control. Large tanks are slower and an easier target, but merging reduces your total number of simultaneous bullets but raises your total HP.
