Ikari Warriors is a one or two player game of survival. You and your partner move behind enemy lines in the hopes of wiping out the enemy. You begin the game with 50 grenades, 99 rounds of ammunition, and 3 lives. If your luck you can capture a tank to protect you from enemy fire.

Move your controller to manoeuvre through the jungle. Your main weapons are machine guns and grenades. To fire bullets and tank shells, press the fire button. To toss grenades, hold down the fire button for one or two seconds until the grenade launches.

Watch you bullet and grenade supply carefully. Pick up new supplies before you run out. To pick up new supplies, simply walk over a supply icon. There are no icons that up-grade your fire power. (See items.)

The tank, which moves only on dry land, provides safety from enemy bullets. To enter the tank, move your player onto the top of the tank.

The tank can be destroyed by enemy grenades. If the tank sustains damages while you are inside you go with it. To exit the tank, hold down the fire button for one or two seconds. Press the fire button to fire shots from the tank.

You must pick up fuel along the way to keep the tank moving. The tank explodes if it runs out of gas, so don't miss the energy supply icons!

In your journey through the jungle you will occasionally encounter a river or the sea. You will have to cross the water in order to continue. You can still fire while you are in the water.

If you come into physical contact with an enemy soldier you lose a life. You can hide behind rock and rubble to avoid enemy gunfire. However you will still be vulnerable to their grenades, so watch out!

Each time the enemy makes a successful hit you lose a life. You receive a bonus life every 10,00 points. The fame is over when you lose your last life. To win the game, you must rescue the colonel being held captive by the enemy.
