Anyone remember a game called....

Scorched Tanks....

I was amazed to find that its creator rewrote it for the pc before sadly dying of Hochkins Lymphona..... Its called TREADMARKS these days and you can find it at ( http://www.treadmarks.com/ ) you can pick it up for just a few quid at ( www.dmf.filetap.com ) - Just a thought in case there were any old fans of the original amiga version out there......

For something closer to the original (in fact, I think the original was a clone of this...?) you could try Scorched Earth.
Don't remember if there's a windows-friendly version, so you may need to break out DosBox.

Or, if you want your tanks to move lol .. and have some cool pickups ... treadmarks.com lol....

It all depends on your flavour, to use a recreation of the Seaumas McNally original, or to actually play Seamas's natural evolutioned game, either way, i like TM and just thought you retro scamps would be interested

This is kinda getting like the Team 17 worms thing ...... the 2d and the 3d .....

That IS a more faithful recreation.... just missing the "Question of Sport" sample..... you get a kill and the puter goes..... "EEEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR Extrodinary !!" (i think that was from an amos version i once played, pretty cool... had me in fits lol"

ThinkTanks from bravetree.com is unquestionably the greatest game ever created!!! you can download all updates from planetthinktanks.com My data file is over 530MBs of terrains, missions, etc. its fantastical, 3D tanks, very realistic game play, everything is customize-able, there is a very active developer's community and new stuff is created daily,,, $20.00 and worth every cent!!!
