Other than skill keeping you alive, your tank has an energy shield that comes in red, yellow, green, indicating how strong the shield is. Each strength takes one full hit of a weapon for you. Once your shield is gone if you get hit once by anything, say goodnight.
In Heavy Weapon, there is no way to set the difficulty. For the campaign game, for the 19 missions, you will get hard and easy missions depending on how you have your atomic tank specced out and whether the mission itself is hard or not and whether the boss is a cakewalk or a real challenge. The survival mode will continue to get harder no matter what, the longer you survive.
There are two ways to play this game. In Mission mode you follow the story line. Periodically a friendly helicopter drops supplies and main weapon upgrades. At the end of each level there are six weapons that you can add to your tank. You are given one point for each level you complete. Additions like lasers and a defense orb can be added to help you beat harder levels. In addition to all these weapons you can also receive two types of super weapons. The Mega Laser is assembled by collecting four pieces throughout the level. This weapon only lasts a short time but destroys everything on contact. Next is the Nuke, this is dropped by the friendly helicopter and can be used at anytime to damage everything on the screen.
It's shoot-'em-up arcade action at its best! Use an incredible assortment of heavy artillery to blast away enemy tanks and planes, and fight your way to victory. What are you waiting for? Pull yourself up by your bootstraps and get into the action!
Heavy Weapon is a side-scrolling shooter that will remind older players of games like Moon Patrol or 'Nam 1975, or the Atari 2600 classic Air/Sea Battle.

It's all so easy at the beginning it's almost soothing. But it doesn't take long for the challenge to ramp up.

Heavy Weapon is essentially a 2D shooter. You move across the base of the screen with the left stick and direct missiles, lasers and general advanced weaponry with the right stick. And that's pretty much all there is to Heavy Weapon. You'll shoot down a variety of aircrafts, missiles and general bad eggs along your journey through 10 or so locations in the single-player campaign, powering up your tank after each mission. This is where Heavy Weapon really shines. There's a constant sense of progression because at the end of each mission you're individually selecting the power-ups that suit your playing style best. And while Heavy Weapon is at base a simple 2D dual-joystick shooter, it really continues to make you feel bad ass.

Of all the scientific and technological advances made during World War II, few receive as much attention as the atomic bomb. Developed in the midst of a race between the Axis and Allied powers during the war, the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki serve as notable markers to the end of fighting in the Pacific. While debates over the decision to use atomic weapons on civilian populations continue to persist, there is little dispute over the extensive ways the atomic age came to shape the twentieth century and the standing of the United States on the global stage. Competition for dominance propelled both the United States and the Soviet Union to manufacture and hold as many nuclear weapons as possible. From that arms race came a new era of science and technology that forever changed the nature of diplomacy, the size and power of military forces, and the development of technology that ultimately put American astronauts on the surface of the moon.
The published comments come a day after the German government said it plans to release more than 1 billion euros ($1.08 billion) in military aid to Ukraine following complaints by Kyiv that it is not receiving heavy weapons from Berlin.
