Strategy X (ス卜ラテジーX) is a vertically scrolling shooter released as an arcade video game by Konami in 1981. It was licensed to Stern Electronics for US distribution. The player controls a tank through various stages, defeating enemies and picking up fuel. Konami published an Atari 2600 version in 1983.[2]


In a retrospective look, AllGame said, "Strategy X's graphics are colorful, but not always helpful in terms of figuring out what's going on".[3]
