About this 3D Tank Game:
This is a classic 3D tank game. Strategy is the important element to win this game. You have to fire varieties of bombs at your enemies; with right power and at a certain angle. I definitely found this game better than Battle Tanks 2.
In your game window you can see several icons and maps.
On the top left corner you can see wind direction and also four icons above it. They are:
- The first is a camera icon; when you click on it, many options will be shown. These are certain camera angles. The top view and above tank view are good views out of them. Even if you move your mouse the camera moves and when you scroll it zooms. So, carefully choose your camera view so that you can see your enemies also.
- The second icon is for resigning (come out of the game by declaring yourself dead) or clearing tracers and save option is available here to save your game.
- The third icon looks like a bomb; it shows all the varieties of bombs you have.
- The last icon in this series is for viewing different icons on your screen. If the options are tick marked then they appear on your screen or else they don’t.
The top right corner shows you a mini map of the top view. You get to know where your enemies are located. The right bottom corner shows your icon and various shields or add-ons you are carrying. The left bottom corner shows the chat, power, rotation angle, elevation, and the type of bomb in use.
