ThinkTanks – tank combat game

ThinkTanks is a tank combat game designed to be a blast for the new and experienced gamer.

Charge in, take aim, and take off! ThinkTanks is a tank combat game designed to be a blast for the new and experienced gamer alike with lighthearted, fast paced pandemonium. Either battling against brain-hungry bots in solo play or going head-to-head against others online, ThinkTanks has something for everyone.

The game’s plot is rather unusual: Aliens from “Alien Mind Control” have kidnapped human soldiers and put their brains into tanks. Then, they set the tanks on replicas of Earth terrains and watch them fight for their own sadistic amusement. The player has a mutation that lets him/her resist their mind control, and has to leave the alien planet.

You are cast into a veritable feeding frenzy of tanks. You need to simultaneously track the position of your tank relative to the scrum ball using your radarscope, while navigating your tank along the bumpy terrain. If you are quick enough to pick up the ball yourself, you must make a mad dash to the goal, evading the thirsty pack of mad bots heavy on your trail. You win by capturing the most scrum balls in the allotted time.

Features include:

  • 3 tanks to drive.
  • Detailed and vibrant worlds to explore: The rolling hills and lush valleys are great for long range sniping and dogfighting. The dark and spooky missions are harder to navigate, and you must keep your wits about you or you may get ambushed by others lurking in the shadows. The skatepark-like lava fields are great for highflying mayhem and aerial assaults..
  • ThinkTanks Bots.
  • Custom Game creation and Bot Configuration allow for a true custom mission design enabling you to create custom battle scenarios.
  • Child-Safe Filter can turn off player and server names and in-game chat messages.
