    Looks a bit like Konami's "Scramble".

    For me, would have to be Combat on the Atari 2600.

    I remember playing the tank part of combat with my younger brother. The game mode had the bullets that would bounce off walls, well we had an aftermarket joystick, and if you fired, the tank would spin on the spot, then fire, and would get a guaranteed hit unless you moved. Of course, that was the joystick of choice when that was discovered.
