Tanks features classic projectile gameplay in a Flash game package that ups the ante with tank, ammo and weapon upgrades, and even multiplayer action to boot.
The object of the game, of course, is to blow up your opponent(s). You can play against up to 4 other humans using the same computer, or against the computer. Each player takes a turn firing at an opponent by selecting cannon rotation, fire power, and even which weapon to fire. Following completion of a game, each player is awarded cash with which to buy weapons and upgrades, and this is where the real fun begins. =)
The up and down arrow keys control the cannon rotation, while the right and left arrow keys move your tank accordingly. Page up and Page down keys are used for controlling fire power. Press space to fire.
The interface for Tanks leaves much to be desired, and yet it is unnecessarily complex. The gameplay is actually quite simple and, if you can get past the interface, there is a fun little game lying in wait. Concentrate on learning how to aim and hit opponents first, then begin to explore all the options available to help get the job done. Click.
