Welcome to the game. Once your tank has appeared on the screen and its engine has started, start moving forward as four Type 1 Tanks come rolling towards you; once you have fired a shot at each of them to kill them, turn to the left and continue moving forward, as four more Type 1 Tanks come rolling towards you. Once you've fired a single shot at each of them to kill them, turn to the right then continue moving forward as five more Type 1 Tanks come rolling towards you - and once you have fired a shot at each of these to kill them, turn to the left and continue moving forward as four more Type 1 Tanks come rolling towards you. Once you have fired a shot at each of these ones to kill them, you will come to a Type 2 Torchika, that is firing eight orange projectiles at you; once you have fired a shot at it to kill it, you will come to a Jump Zone that is flashing red. If you drive your tank onto it, it will be raised high into the air - and from here, it will be able to drop nuclear missiles on the enemies, just like it does when it pops a wheelie. Once the tank has dropped back down to the ground, you will have the opportunity to drive it onto that Jump Zone twice more, before its colour changes from flashing red to solid black (which indicates that you cannot use it any more); you'll then have to turn to the left and continue moving forward as a maximum of twenty-two more Type 1 Tanks, twelve Type 2 Tanks, and one Type 5 Tank come rolling towards you, while firing orange projectiles and small missiles at you. Once you have fired a single shot at each of the Type 1 and 2 Tanks to kill them (the Type 5 Tank takes eight), you will have to turn to the right and continue moving forward, as you come to two Type 1 Torchikas that are firing eight orange projectiles at you - and once you have fired a shot at both of these two to kill them, you will come to two more Type 2 Torchikas that are firing eight orange projectiles at you. Once you have fired a shot at both of them to kill them, four more Type 1 Tanks will come rolling towards you while firing orange projectiles at you; once you have fired a shot at each of these ones to kill them, you will come to two Type 1 Cannons that are firing pink projectiles at you. Once you have fired ten shots at both of them to kill them, the text "PLAYER 1UP STAGE 01 CLEAR" will appear on the screen - and the "area clear" theme will then start to be heard from the Yamaha YM-2151 as your tank moves forward, performs a ninety-degree clockwise turn, and continues moving forward towards the area's exit hatch while the text of "TIME BONUS! XX*50 POINTS XXX0 POINTS" (the "X"s being the number of seconds you had remaining, and the product of it when it is multiplied by 50) appears on the screen, and you receive 50 bonus points for every second of time you have remaining. Once the exit hatch has opened up, the text "NOW YOU ASSAULT ON NEXT STAGE!!" will appear on the screen as your tank is raised high into the air and dropped down through the hatch to the next area, Memorial Land Forever - and if you managed to finish this stage with exactly 0 seconds left, you will receive a bonus of 135 x 50 points (6750 points), indicating that you had 2:15 to clear the stage in.
