Artillery Duel is a strategy game where two fixed-position cannons take turns firing rounds in at each other, on a randomly generated horizontal field of play. The player or players control their cannons’ incline and power, adjusting for wind speed, in an attempt to destroy one another. Players must account for the generated geography to avoid hitting it. The Commodore 64 version has additional options for ammo loadout, and enhanced graphics. Various game settings include changing wind speed and conditions to win the game.
The Atari 2600 version exists in standalone format, and as one half of a double ended cartridge, where the other end containes another of Xonox’ games.
