3D Tanx

The plot to this one is simple - you control an artillery piece overlooking a bridge and must stop the enemy tanks crossing.

You can move left or right and raise or lower your gun's elevation. Firing is rapid and you can have up to four shots in the air at once which helps to quickly deplete your limited supply of shells.

If you hit the lower half of a tank it stops, but it can still fire at you. I think it's a bit cruel that tanks behind will blow such half-damaged tanks out of the way, but that's life.

Although it is a simple game, I enjoyed it thoroughly. I think there is an urge in us all to wreak havoc and destruction, and this game provides a good outlet!
