New Shots of InJoy Motion’s Allied Tank Attack

arcadehero January 17, 2014 5

One game I was hoping to get some hands-on time with late last year was InJoy Motion’s brand new Allied Tank Attack. There haven’t been very many tank games in arcades this past decade and its a genre I find to generally feature fun games. Unfortunately I still haven’t had a chance to play ATA yet but hopefully that will change soon. Allied Tank Attack is available for purchase now; in particular Barron Games has been carrying the game for Western markets and distributors can get the game from them. Even though it came out in November 2013 we didn’t get a direct screenshot or long video look to share with you of it, we just had images of the cabinet or short low rez videos of people giving it a spin. In addition to this being a motion game, operators can pick between a single seat or a twin seat configuration, the Twin seat being notable for it’s use of a driver/gunner setup.

UPDATE: I received many more screenshots to share from InJoy Motion so I am going to divide the content into tabs, screenshots on the left, the video on the right.

One interesting and unique feature for a tank game: You get to select your weapon for the tank as opposed to them being power-ups you grab on the battlefield. There are 10 weapon types to choose from and you can also choose from 6 different tank types (the bottom piece) too. Most arcade tank games just give you a single tank style and call it a day.

Some direct action from the game. judging by the video below, they have good detail backed up by a solid frame rate. That was one hindrance on another one of Injoy’s games, Power Boat, which had the detail and lighting effects but the frame rate was too choppy.

It’s better to let the video below show this but there are also three game modes to ATA which should provide greater replay value to the title; although the VS mode is only available with linked units. This can link four units together.

UPDATE: New Screenshots sans the HUD. The game is at the EAG Expo in London, UK right now.

Now for the video:

So there is your new choice in a tank game for arcades. It’s not exactly a driver, not exactly a light-gun game but it offers elements of both. It will be at the Amusement Expo in Vegas so I should be able to review it around that time.

    I haven’t seen any of Injoy’s games anywhere. How are they in terms of quality compared to other simulators by Sega, Namco and Raw Thrills?

        Thanks skygod. Where or what state/country have you seen their games? I would really like to try some of their games but I haven’t seen anything in the US or Canada.

    I’ve never heard about Injoy before. The game looks good but I think I will stick to WoT. 🙂

      Just added new screenshots to the post.

      We’ve been covering InJoy since I first learned about them in 2008. Being a Taiwanese company they didn’t get a really good foothold in the US until recently after they began a relationship with US-based Barron Games. Most of their games have been racing or light-gun games but they almost always have been focused on motion technology (the force feedback in their guns is very different than anyone else). They also did a music game called Love Touch a few years ago but decided not to release that here; They also did have an arcade motion version of Panzer Elite Action, which in some ways was a prototype to ATA.
