Hi everyone,
I'm trying to remember the title of an old game. You controlled a tank
or some other sort of vehicle which had a swiveling turret, and you
could travel forward or backward along a track shaped like a figure
eight. There were enemies traveling along the same track and you had
to try to destroy them before they got you. I believe the game could
be played either alone against the computer or against another human
player. Perhaps there were other track shapes, but the figure eight is
the only one I can recall at the moment.

I probably played the game circa 1994 or 1995, and if memory serves me
right it was in color.

Any ideas?

Thank you for your time.

I was going to say "Bolo" when I saw the title, but don't think this was
the game described.

Spectre was another battlezone-like game, but that doesn't sound right either.
