Tank Attack requires you to use a board game playing with the computer. It is a fold out map which features a hex map presented in war-gaming style. It is split into four countries with a variety of terrains.
There are four armoured divisions comprising of four armoured cars and eight tanks. Your aim is to destroy the bases of the other players countries by getting into range and blowing up the HQ.
The computer acts as a moderator deciding the outcomes of fire-fights and keeping track of the status of each force. At the start of a turn the computer rolls a dice to determine how many movement units a player can use. The player can decide where to attack and where to move.
The winner is the one with his bases still intact and the other players' destroyed.
A good PC conversion of a fun "light" boardgame-style tank simulation for the BBC Micro and Amiga computers. Your goal is simple: annihilate up to 3 other players in a tanks-only strategic warfare. The graphics are nothing special, but as always, it's the gameplay that counts ;) The rules in this turn-based old game are quite simple: you are alloted a given number of points for each turn, with a few options to spend them on. These commands range from telling your tanks which enemy to attack (opposing tanks or headquarters), repair the tank, or rebuild the depot. Battles are briefly animated and results displayed, and a game could be over in merely a few hours. Despite the limited gameplay, Tank Attack is still a lot of fun-- similar to Infogrames' Nuclear War, it evokes the simple charm of board games that many old-timers can identify with ;) Worth a look, but don't expect a realistic or complex simulation.
