New Amiga Game Released

I've just uploaded a game called Tank Wars to Aminet, which I've written in the past few weeks. It's one of those overhead, shoot-each-other type things for 2-5 players (or for 2-3 players if you don't have a joystick adaptor). It features 25 different levels, a league option (from 1-50 matches, with save feature) and powerups and time limits, which are both optional.

It's not exactly original, and the code's not great, but it does work and I hope it provides a modicum of entertainment.

It should also work on pretty much any Amiga (except for OS4), although I wait to be proved wrong!

When it does appear on Aminet, it'll be in the game/2play directory. Please try it out, and let me know what you think of it. Thanks!

I remember reading something you wrote about this in another thread.

Sounds cool... I'll definitely give it a try. Nice work

Quick update: I uploaded it on Wednesday, but as you may have noticed, it never appeared. Why, I've no idea, they didn't even send me an e-mail or anything, but I've tried again today, and as a special treat I'll put it in the Zone for you to try out.

It should run on any Amiga. It doesn't specifically support gfx cards, as it shuts down the OS and uses the Amiga's hardware. I've no idea if it will work anyway, you'll just have to try it.

Nope, sorry, though it does look awful so it's not a great loss. It consists of lots of grey, with green walls, and differently coloured tanks (which I didn't draw). I'm no artist, frankly.

Bump

Er, does anyone want to leave any feedback then? I've had the grand total of one e-mail so far.
