So I decided to start flash game reviews because I like flash games, and thanks to my rubbish laptop at university, these are the only things I can seem to run smoothly.
Oh but it is not so bad after all! For my first review I shall introduce you to:
It is a top-down view shooter where you control a tank (clue is in the name). You have a “story mode” where you are given missions in certain environments. When I started that, I found something that I loved…
The animations are pretty cool, and every time an explosion happens the screen shakes subtly, which gives it an extra oomph! effect. My only qualm is with the cross-hair, which seems a bit big and ugly, maybe it could get a sleeker design? Also the menu can be a little bland and confusing, but you can get the hang of it pretty easily.
The controls are basic and easy to master. Asides from the story mode missions, which include destroying a certain amount of units, escort missions, destroying target buildings (radars, factories), protecting certain buildings and boss fights, it also has an “arena mode” where you try and survive wave after wave. Best tip I have is to keep moving!
You have a cannon, a mini-gun and “special slot” where you get special weapons. The one you start with is a shock wave thing that deflects any projectiles, but at the end of each mission you get a wheel of fortune thing:
That is quite a cool feature. You can get special weapons, normal weapons to replace your cannon or mini-gun or even “items” which give you passive effects (lock on systems, shields and the like).
Another cool feature is the ability to unlock tanks by collecting money from missions, one tank I unlocked stayed invisible when you stood still which allowed me to make cool surprise attacks.
Oh and the mini-gun I mentioned earlier is not just useful for soldiers, but also air units (yep, air units). You get attacked by helicopters, jets and even stealth bombers!
There is no apparent back story to this game, just that you drive a tank and you kick ass, but it doesn’t really need one…
Good game, definitely a good time waster but also fun if you want some simple relaxing action. The cross-hair and menus could be improved but they aren’t that much of a hindrance, so I give this a…
9/10! - And here is the link! (again).
