Net Yaroze Month: Tanx

To learn more about Net Yaroze, read our introductory article here.

Tanx is basically a modern update of Combat on the Atari 2600. If you liked playing that, then you’ll get a kick out of this. Like Combat, Tanx is two player only, so you’ll need a willing friend.

Combat was fun with a friend on the VCS, and this has some of the same charm, but how long do you sit there playing Combat these days?

The game offers several play modes: Duel, Capture the Flag, and Search and Retrieve; plus three different maps. Sadly the game feels slow and sluggish which sucks some of the fun from it.
