    Re: Very cool little game

    Hey cool. I use to play a game like this on my Amiga. I can now finally play it on my Mac.

    That looks like a critically modified version of Artillery 2.0.1 for System 7. That was a cool game.

    Edit: Can anyone get the freeware version to download and work?

    It's located just below the Pocket Tanks logo on this page:

    that's a fun game. is it really OS X native, then, or do you have to run classic? i am too lazy to grab the demo.

    I was really addicted to that virus game too until flash locked up my computer with the spinning wheel of death for the second time. Oh, well guess I can't play that one.

    Actually it ran fine for me too for the first game but usually by about the end of the second game the wheel pops up and goes and goes and goes. I don't know if this makes a difference but my games are quite long and each time I won the first game and was just about to win the second game when it spazed out. I don't think it likes losing.

    yeah, this style of game has been around since before time.

    my personal favourite incarnation was 'Scorched Earth'. it was very cool and very funny.

    for those interested: Scorched FAQ

    Damn, nice update to an old game - I love the special shot option, something always lacking in the single shot, get bored really fast original one.

    Hey, anyone ever see a 3D version of this game? that would be interesting....

    You have to be very aggressive. Don't bother trying to get a lot of blocks. Just get to the other side and hammer away at it. One tip- On your way over to the other side of the board, turn a random block to "break the chain" so to speak. That will minimize your losses if the virus gets the upper hand.

    Yes Pocket tanks is a great game, I first played it on a PC and wanted a mac version right away. Thanks to this months MacAddict disk I now have pocket tanks:)
    Now I play against my sis all the time, and of course I beat her but we can't stop!
    I hope I can get it to work on my old PB 5300.

    Carried away

    I got a bit carried away with this game and bought all of the weapon packs. But the best thing with this game is my girlfriend loves it and sits on MY LAP whenever we play it !!!!! GO pocket tanks.
