Tank Hunter is an enhanced version of the original WarZone game,
and was developed for San Francisco based internet games company
Pogo.com (now acquired by Electronic Arts). Tank Hunter contains
many new features such as a new mission based structure, 4 new
types of enemy vehicle, collectable powerups, and greatly improved
special effects (both visual and aural).
Your objective in Tank Hunter is to work your way through as
many missions as possible before your tank gets completly destroyed
by enemy fire. There is a short briefing before each mission,
which outlines the mission's objectives, and gives warning as
to the amount and type of resistance you can expect to face. During
combat, you can check the top right hand corner of the screen
for your currrent mission completion criteria. Upon successfull
completion of a mission, you will be airlifted from the combat
zone, and your tank will be partialy repaired in preperation for
the next level.
Maneuvering your tank is very straightforward, use the arrow
keys to steer and drive the tank. Use the <space> bar to fire
your weapon. Your weapon will automatically reload itself after
firing a round. You can enhance you tank's capabilites by collecting
powerups which will appear from time to time near destroyed enemy
tanks. Powerups appear as spining blue icons (and as blue dots
on the radar), in the form of wrenches, lasers, and shields.
The radar is located in the lower left hand corner of the screen.
This enables you to locate enemies and navigate around obstacles
etc.. The radar can be zoomed in and out by pressing 'w 'and 'q'
In addition to the enemy's main battle tanks, you can also expect
to encounter super tanks (which are very heavily armored and require
several hits to destroy), phantom tanks (which use a cloaking
device rendering them almost completly invisible to the human
eye and radar), and hover mines, which are often deployed in groups
which silently surround and home in on your tank (these are invisible
to radar). Pay close attention to your pre-mission briefings,
as they can sometimes provide you with vital clues as to the types
of enemy units deployed in the area.
Tips and Hints
Make use of the radar to avoid enemy shots that don't appear
in the main view.
There are many obstacles in some of the combat areas, use them
Take your target's movement direction and speed into account
when aiming shots at them. Particularly for long range targets,
aiming towards their direction of movement will increase your
chance of a hit.
