Hell TankHell Tank is an attempt to recreate a modern online multi-player PC version of Death Tank Zwei, the extremely addictive hidden bonus game that came with the Sega Saturn version of Duke Nukem 3D by Lobotomy, which was, in turn, a clone of the classic Shareware Scorched Earth
The game is currently in its early stages (and has been for a long time, due to a 3 year development hiatus) but already provides an entertaining single player experience (as it includes CPU controlled players to make up the numbers, something lacking from the original!)
Multi player games now work, although currently game rounds don't, so once everyone's dead, that's it - you'll have to quit the game and restart. Also there are currently only two weapons available, the standard basic shot (with infinite ammo), and a limited amount of machine gun ammo.
ControlsHelltank supports any DirectX compatible game controller, and allows you to totally configure the button layout, but keyboard can be used too for those without a gamepad.
For multi player games on a single computer, you will need a controller for each player (with one optionally on keyboard)
Default keysThese are the way the keys are configured by default in the current build of the game (most recent demo may differ):
|UP||Thrust up (Jumpjets / hover coil)|
|M||Activate Targetting Computer|
|F||Toggle FPS Display|
