When I first loaded Pedro the Tank Game onto my computer, I thought that I was in
for yet another disappointing computer game. However, while the graphics and sound
were not exactly on par with Doom, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Pedro
the Tank Game was an addictive little gem.
Pedro the Tank Game conjures up images on Combat from the Atari 2600 with
alien scenery akin to Missile Command. As I played the game, I realized that it was not
as simple as it had first appeared and that these tiny immobile tanks could do a lot more
than just fire minute missiles. There are many trick shots and strategies to use.
The one player games are fun, but they are not nearly as challenging as the two player
modes. When your opponent is on the opposite side of the screen and protected by
mounds of dirt, it is very difficult to float a perfectly aimed missile at him or her. This is
the exciting challenge that Pedro the Tank Game has to offer. Pedro makes you think
and then react. Thinking has been sucked out of so many video games that it is completely
refreshing to see a low-tech, low budget game like Pedro.
While the two-player battles are almost always going to be more exciting than solo play,
the single player modes are still worth taking a look at. The Cutie Shoot and Survival
modes are challenging, but the best one player game has to be Buckets O' Fun. This mode
in Pedro the Tank Game is the complete opposite of the two player mode. It is
completely mindless and totally fun. Trying to fill a bucket with "Cutie blood" and dirt is
not as easy as you might think. Fortunately, the action allows for a totally chaotic button-
mashing session. Shoot anything and everything to fill up that bucket! When the bucket is
filled, the percentage of blood and dirt is broken down and points are awarded. It is very
I guess the only real drawbacks to Pedro the Tank Game are its graphics and sound. It
is one of those games that does not look great, but it is a game that you will have a great
time playing. The price is right, too. The full version of Pedro the Tank Game is free if
you register at the Sammyspace Software site. Most giveaway games are garbage, but
Pedro the Tank Game is definitely worth the quick download.
