It's quirky, it's fun, and it's baaaaad. As you could expect from the team that designed Lemmings (DMA Design, later bought out by Gremlin), Tanktics is a unique and fun-to-play strategy game. The premise: travel through four eras battling your foe with tanks and weapons made from odds and end. A crazy contraption called the Parts-O-Matic produces the weapons you need and helps you to upgrade your weapons and tanks. |
The primary resource in Tanktics is sheep. That's right, sheep. Sheep run the shop. Treat them well and you will prosper. Every level is uniquely designed and offers its own diverse set of challenges. The fantastic tutorial teaches basic strategy and the simple and intuitive controls.
DMA Design's cheeky humor that characterizes Lemmings shines through in every way in this one as well. Two thumbs up!
