Description from the packaging.

Armor Alley's a one way street, and you're headed down it right now. The tanks and rocketfire are coming this way. Good luck Pal. You're gonna need it.

Armor Alley is hot, and it gets better with every battle. Through the rattle of machine guns and a searing flood of napalm, your job is to lead convoys of equipment and men through the enemy's lines and destroy his base. To succeed, you must keep your wits about you despite the constant explosions and gunfire.

Your helicopter covers ground forces, clearing the way as heat seeking missiles hunt the engines' exhaust, trying to turn you into a falling cloud of smoking shrapnel. You must develop strategies to keep the enemy choppers at bay while you refuel and re-arm.

Gold pours into your treasury as you work your way down the alley. Use it to buy new equipment, build new convoys and order up new choppers to replace those destroyed. But beware; if the enemy infiltrates your lines and breaks into the treasury, you could lose it all.

Your radar gives you a clear view of the entire battlefield as long as the enemy doesn't manage to jam it. It's a stark landscape - boulders, cacti, small clumps of trees, a ragged collection of bunkers - yours and the enemy's - all set against a starry nighttime background.

To complete Armor Alley, you must win 8 consecutive battles of increasing difficulty. Games can be suspended, saved and resumed, giving you time to recover mentally before pressing on to the final goal.

Armor Alley is a combined action strategy game for 1-4 players. It can be played on a single Mac or PC compatible, on multiple Mac or PC compatible computers over an Apple Talk Network, or on a remote Macintosh and PC compatibles connected through modems over standard telephone lines (each player needs a separate copy of Armor Alley). Armor Alley supports full color IBM.
