Additional Comments - Tank Blitz

The origins of this prototype are unknown. Several suggestions have been offered up on the possible identity of this game, with the most popular theory being it is the long lost Milton Bradley game Tank Blitz which was showed at the 1984 toy fair together with the also never released Armored Commander controller. Unfortunately there really isn’t much to tie it to Tank Blitz other than they both featured tanks. The prototype is very simplistic and incomplete, doesn’t mention MB anywhere and features swastikas instead of enemy tanks. Even back in 1983 showing swastikas in games was generally frowned upon, especially for a family oriented game company like Milton Bradley. The only identifying mark is the Jims Toy logo at the bottom, which may in fact be a hack of another company’s logo. The stray pixels after the Y is due to a programming error resulting in some pixels being repeated when they shouldn’t be. This all points to a programmers personal side project rather than a game for a major company. However, until we figure out who Jim might have been, the actual identity of this game will remain a mystery.
