An Evil Armada...

A mysterious army has risen from an unknown origin and is steadily wiping out all opposition. Called GRANADA by some, the armada is headed by an ultra-powerful hyper tank, capable of immense destruction. No country is safe, and already much of the planet has succumbed to its might. One lone infiltration, tank stands in the armada's way, and you are the driver! Save the world by destroying the army's boss machines, including the awesome Granada hyper tank!

Mission One

The gigantic jumping boss will chase you no matter where you try to hide. Find a clearing near the beginning of the level to fight it.

Mission Two

This boss has a nasty temper and an invulnerable shell! The only way to destroy it is to wait until it opens its laser hatch. Send a blast there!

Mission Three

Watch out! After you destroy the missile placements on this boss, he launches a flame thrower attack at you! Stay near the middle to avoid it.

Mission Four

It's nighttime, and nobody is asleep! Beware hidden boulders! This boss can only be hit from behind. Use the reflection barrier wisely.

Mission Five

Now it's getting rough! Laser placements are everywhere, and it's your job to destroy them. Stay in the upper left to defeat the boss.

Since the arrival of a giant battle tank, the world's armies are in jeopardy. Take command of the planet's last defense, a specialized attack tank and push back the enemy.

Hop in your Hypertek Cannon Tank and go out after the enemy who now dominate the cities, countryside and the skies. Scrolling both vertically and horizontally and shown in an overhead view, you must use your radar to locate and eliminate the mini-bosses on each level. Then go after the level boss. Pick up the weapon options along the way but move quickly as you are also fighting a countdown timer.

8.0

Granada is the closest thing to Assault, the awesome Atari coin-op, that I've seen yet on the home. It takes the old tank game and spruces it up by giving you specific missions, weapon enhancements that increase the play technique and a frenzied battle that will give even experts blisters.

8.0

A spectacular shooter which is a welcome addition to the Genesis line up because it is hard.Most Genesis games are rather wimpy when it comes to being difficult but wait until you get to the 9th level in Granada it is almost impossible! Good 3-D effects and great bosses!

8.0

Granada is a big surprise, it looks like just another shooter, but it requires a lot of technique to master. Great graphics and excellent sound and a purpose to each level, instead of mindless shooting. Granada features plenty of action and challenge and totally cool bosses.

8.0

This is a great shooter. The game play is smooth and the action is fast and nonstop, it takes a while to get use to the controls because con-troling a tank is a lot different than a plane. It has great graphics and long levels that have decent end bosses. It needs more power ups though.

Warfare has a new face in the 21st century. After decades of open negotiations limiting the deployment and use of inter-continental weapons, conventional strategies have again returned to play a major role in the great world war of 2016. On the forefront of the allied assault is the premiere technological terror of the frontlines, the Hypertek Cannon Tank.

Armed to the teeth with new forms of weaponry and defense, the Granada has been sent on a mission deep behind enemy lines. It is the tank commander's job to take advantage of the advanced shields and radar, as well as the offensive tactical weapons such as multi-directional interceptors, long-range homing missiles and smart bombs capable of eliminating all opposing forces.

Granada combines all of these exciting elements into an action game that requires quick timing and a decent dose of strategy to succeed. Fantastic graphics and sound are coupled with inticing new controls and a formidable army of alien weapons. The enemy war machine, ranging from small roving tanks to huge Boss battleships remain varied throughout each stage of play and will keep even the most battle-hardened video war veterans on the edge of their seats. Check out Granada for a whole different kind of war game!
