One of many games to utilise the shooting mechanism,
Bombard was clever in that your objective was to hit the tiny pins at the
bottom right-hand corner of each target. If you struck them with enough
accuracy and force, the picture would swivel round to reveal an image of
the target being destroyed. Neat. It's very hard to get all four targets
with just six shots, though. Combat Tank is identical except for the name.
ORIGIN: UK (1976)

It's perhaps slightly odd that the US got
the cute, cuddly fairground version of this game, while the UK got the
violent, warlike guns-and-tanks version.
