IMG Reviews Pocket Tanks
11:46 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Today IMG has posted a review of the hit shareware game, Pocket Tanks. Featuring a large variety of weapons, graphics with real-time terrain deformation, and very addictive gameplay, the popular title from Cornerstone TSP Games has been at the top of the Macgamefiles.com "Most Popular" list for many weeks since its release earlier in the year.

In the article, IMG's Zack Lipowski runs down what makes the game so great. Here's an example:

Although PT does not have eye-blistering 3D graphics, with such rock solid gameplay you won't care. That's not to say this isn't a real looker for a Shareware title though. The landscapes themselves are neither ugly nor pretty, simply a strategic plane for your destructive arsenal. One thing I should mention I found interesting is the real-time deformation of the environments. After a large bomb, the land will crumble and fall down, filling up spaces. Coupled with the signature slur sound effect this is very cool indeed. The weapons on the other hand, provide great eye-candy, and some even have multiple stages of explosions and fragments, filling the screen with particles and lights. In fact, I found myself losing multiple games because I was so busy discovering new and exciting weapon explosions.
For the full review, read through the rest of the article. Also be sure to download the Pocket Tanks demo if you haven't yet tried it out.
