6It’s New York in 1997 and all hell’s broken loose. You are a member of “Da Wardenz” peace-keeping force. You have a tank and you’re going to use it, as you drive around towns blowing things up over the course of 25 missions. You shoot enemies and buildings. You find power-ups after blowing things up. Mostly, you just shoot stuff while avoiding being shot. Complete a mission and you get money to upgrade the armor and weapons and your tank. In between missions you can talk to your fellow Wardenz.

Essentially you drive a tank which handles like a guy running around with a shotgun, while dodging other tanks firing projectiles which you can dodge with your nimble tank. You go through somewhat monochromatic environments that aren’t particularly interesting looking, and watch lots of really cool explosions. Yeah, it’s tank Doom.

Yeah, it’s 3D (not great 3D, but still 3D). Yeah, it’s rather dull, unoriginal and unexciting, but if you haven’t tried the other 384 of these 3D shooter things this year, you may have some fun. There’s plenty of stuff to blow-up. Most of us will be bored and shell-shocked over the mediocrity of it all.

    Wooow!

    This is actually a very awsome game that I was searching for long. I had this from a shareware CD, but with a version that was neither shareware – neither full. It was kind of a long beta or alpha version and I never though that they actually finished this game as this is really-really hard to find – I could find literally no traces of it!

    Anyways: This is not only about “shooting like in doom”. The best gameplay mechanic is being able to turn the tower while you are steering in an other direction so that you can evade projectiles. So you can both control the tower facing to the right and if you are using the engines you will see everyone from your side. This is very good to circle around enemies when needed.

    Actually I would not compare this to doom at all. This is more like an “arcade war simulator” like the other tank game “metal” that looked like a japanese manga graphics game or the submarine arcade game called “subhunt”.

    For those who like that kind of games, this is a real gem that is actually really hard to find in any format whatsoever as it has an ambigous and mostly forgotten name…

    I would give three stars because it is playable and there is nothing wrong with it, but I don’t know yet if the full version is better or worse than the techdemo. The techdemo alpha version was hard and nice to play 😉

  2. If you have trouble with the CD version try the 2nd version I’ve just added.
