Lone Tank

by mwest - Competition Entry

An arcade shooter game where you drive a tank and attempt to kill the evil General ZeldaMeme!

I think the gameplay is decent, but I had no time for cool
graphics, sound or music... so I'll understand if you opt not to review this entry :).

A lone tank goes alone?

I should've spent some more time on the cutscenes but time ran out. The idea was that in the first battle you are an infantry-man and your side gets routed, so you decide to go on alone... fortunately someone gives you the keys to the tank in the warehouse.

That was really fun gameplay. The indicators in the corner were a bit hard to read, and it could use an indication that the secondary weapon is ready again. I didn't expect java webstart to work so well on linux. :) Nicely done.

mwest - first of, don't knock yourself for any lacking details, real or otherwise.

I liked the graphics, actually. Had a nice feel, like I was viewing a wargame simulation on old-style ASCII terminals. Just claim you did it on purpose and I'll deem it a nice touch :P

I'll have to agree with the others on the theme, though. It was hardly, if at all, present :-/

A cool little entry, the blowing up walls mechanics was a nice plus. :)

Nifty idea, has the feel of some of the old old DOS games you used to get.

It's limited, but it has some neat features. I found the tank a bit slow and difficult to drive. But I can see potential for this.
