DOS - 1990
Description of Tank Attack
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 underdog 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.

This is not a normal game.
You need the "board game" to play with it, else it makes no sense. The results are always the same. The "game" is nothing but visual confirmation of the action on the board game which you need to have to play the game.
There is no A.I. but also if you have 3 other humans to play, it still doesn't make sense unless you have the board game. This is not a normal video game. Just a warning.
