Rommel's Revenge PAL options screen for PAL Coco's & Dragons

Since the game was designed for PAL Coco's and Dragons in the UK, the above 3 screenshots show the display as intended by the authors.

Rommel's Revenge is one of the best clones of the arcade hit, Battle Zone. In it, you drive a tank around a 3D world (which includes geometric obstacles to steer around), attempting to destroy tanks and other enemies, without getting shot yourself. It features a radar, and a two color, highest resolution screen (256x192). Rommel's Revenge allows a lot of customizations; including joystick vs. keyboard controls (and every key can be customized), multiple skill levels, and even saving your option settings to tape to re-use later.
An interesting side note is that the game was developed under OS-9, even though the game itself runs under BASIC. It originally came out in the UK, and was also available for the Dragon 32/64 computers.
