Color Tanks

DoraFunByJohn's chaotic arena shooter Color Tanks does the unthinkable by making tanks bouncy and cheerfully bright, and also by forcing me to spell "color" without a U. Using the [WASD] keys to move and the mouse to aim and shoot, your task, should you choose to accept it, is to take out all your enemies with blasts of colourful blobs before they do the same to you. Doing so earns you cash you can spend at any time by opening the upgrades menu with [spacebar], purchasing everything from temporary flight, to special shots, and extra lives... important since once all your lives run out, your money will be wiped. Just like in real life, naturally, you'll also have to contend with a variety of terrain problems, like conveyor belts and launching pads, that can either help or hinder you against enemies that fly or use other dirty tricks. It's sort of a giddy little game with a soundtrack you'll either love or hate right off the back and a great sense of style. Unfortunately, it'd be a lot more fun if upgrades were persistent or more varied, and the lives system just seems... well, sort of pointless. A fun, frantic little game, if not one to write home to mother about, Color Tanks nevertheless has a great casual appeal for the action fan who is too chicken to actually play paintball when they're not inside an armored vehicle. Hey, I'm not judging. Those suckers hurt.

No offense to the guy who made this game but, the AI is pretty bad, if they aimlessly run around the map and if they ever attack their aim is VERY bad to the point where it's not a real challenge.

I kinda agree with you. I like the game and some of the AI is dull, but since there is different tank of AI.

Black: aggressive, charges/chase you.
White: Mine layer.
Red: ?
Orange: rotate to face you, don't move much.
Blue: Regular?
Grey: Jet pack spray.

Anyway the main deal is if you play it smart you'll have plenty of money to spend on lives later. Like enough to buy 40+ lives. Don't bother with the nuke since it only helps once. The shield last as long infinitly until it gets damaged enough and the heli lasts a long time and does enough damage over a wide area.
