The game designed to play from the top view of the gamer. So you always have this bird-eye view on the tanks attacking each other, shooting and dodging bullets behind buildings and bushes. The basic design of the game makes a subtle view of how you can consciously move towards the other territories and hit other tanks. The various elements such as bushes, cottages, ponds, trees, and buildings are viewed from the top-angle which makes the location quite rich. The overall surrounding is pretty cool considering the level of graphics in the game.
Gameplay is quite straight where your tank is surrounded by the enemy’s tanks and it is only the matter of few bullets before your tank gets destroyed. You can move tanks from left to right, forward and backward along with the target of the tank cannon. So, with this game, you are supposed to use the keyboard and mouse cursor. Tanks are needed to hail towards different areas in the game zone where you soon enough find various tanks attacking you with fires. You can only take up to 6 fires after which your tank will be destroyed that means game over. The best way to protect your tank from these fires is to try to get a base with some shield using the local providences such as houses, trees or buildings. You will feel trapped when two tanks surround you and it becomes tough to hit without being hit. The tricky thing is to not get trapped and destroyed by the showering gunfires. The levels are tough to play and have some learning curve to it.
Tips to Play
- The best thing for the first time gamer for Tank Arena is can play sometime for just practice. Start the game and try to get hold of the tank movement and taking swift turns along with sharp precise shoots.
- At first, try taking some rounds of the area there, understanding your grip on the movement and aiming. Forget about shooting tanks at first few tries. Just go with protecting yourself from the hits. However, it is tough and almost impossible but with that practice, you will gain the efficiency of control and some idea about the game as well.
- Use the environment and elements as your shield or cover. You can use buildings, trees, shrubs, and cottages to hide and then shoot on opportunities. Dodge yourself from the fires with the help of getting cover from such elements.
- Another trick for the game could be that to wait. Wait for enough and let the tanks come to you rather blindly entering the unknown territories. Tanks usually come at the sudden and grab you by multiple shooting. So try to avoid the surprise and be subtle and slow with your movements.
