Performan Action!This game is interesting. It's a static screen, stage-clear-type action game.

The game is viewed from the top, and a button allows you to dig tunnels under the playing field where you can move under obstacles and enemies like a mole.

There are 2 different types of enemies, one is a robot The enemy robot and the other one a battle tank The drilling tank with a drill on its head. The tank can go dig tunnels.
