Pocket Tanks Review

Pocket Tanks Box Art
Hello ladies and gents, happy Tuesday.  Today I thought I'd take us back to the days of old.  Somewhere between Pac-Man and Halo: Combat Evolved, Pocket Tanks was created. First released in 2001,the game received positive support, thus the gaming industry was in its early stages of development. Halo came out only months later after the release of Pocket Tanks. It was released for Mac OS X and Windows, it is a 1-2 player game where the player takes control of a 2-D tank.  A recent version was created for the iPhone, created by Blitwise Productions, developer of Super DX-Ball and Neon Wars. Adapted from Michael Welch's earlier Amiga game Scorched Tanks, this newer version features modified physics, dozens of weapons ranging from simple explosive shells to homing missiles, and the ability to move the tank. It supports several expansion packs. At the moment, players can have up to 295 different weapons total.  Pocket Tanks is often abbreviated as PTanks, or simply as PT. The point of the game is to use various weapons, which come in various packs, to attack the other player's tank. Each hit scores a certain amount of points, which varies based on the weapon and proximity. At the end of 10 volleys, the player with the highest points wins.  The game features a fully destructible environment, which allows player to put themselves on pedestals, in tunnels, or bunkers, allowing for the probability of strategic play. A fun experience by yourself or with a friend. Overall its a fun game, that's worth playing, 7 out of 10.  I hope you enjoyed and I will see you Thursday,  OLD SCHOOL FOR THE WIN BABY!!! This has been Jacob Arnold signing off.

Unfortunatly I couldn't find a trailer so I thought I'd upload one of FreddieW's awesome videos that reminded me of this review. All content belongs to their rightful owners
