Ancient DOS Games --- Episode 36

Tank Wars




Additional Information and Corrections:

  • A couple things I didn't mention. Firstly, if a round goes on too long, lightning strikes from the heavens at random. The longer the round goes past the first lightning strike, the more frequent and intense the lightning gets!


  • Secondly, even though the game only supports PC Speaker sound, there were plans to add enhanced sound support, but they feel through for some reason.


  • When you go searching for the shareware version of this game, keep in mind that there are two common versions to come across: v3.0 and v3.2. I was playing with v3.2. They are both virtually identical as far as I can tell.


  • Also of note is that there's another game called Tank Wars, previously released in 1986 for DOS. This one was made by Cody Snider and is a much more basic artillery game, running in a CGA 4-colour mode.
