Menus and gameplay are in Japanese.

Panzer Bandit is a beat'em up game in which you have 4 characters to choose from (and 8 unlockable ones) to go through 8 stages in total to brawl it out before completing the game.

In addition to that, there is a versus mode, which allow you to duke it out one on one, two on two, or battle royal up to a total of 4 players or CPU controlled opponents.

World have since gone scrace with the reduction in energy that consistently used by human. For this, an organization called Arc (actually the name of the giant flying whale-ship) lead by the evil Prof. Farado seek to manipulate the consumption of preserved energy and ultimately conquer the world with that in possession. For the course of the game, your heroes are required to take the preserved energy before "Arc" does in the first 4 stages, and ultimately, destroy whatever left of "Arc" in the last 4 stages

One thing you might want to know is the story of this game actually intended to be incomplete for the 'to be continued....' message actually come out after you beat the final boss of this game at normal difficulty or higher. However, as Fill-In-Cafe have since disappeared, there will probably be no more future Panzer Bandit game whatsoever
