Platform: Flash

Description: A classic flash game in which multiple players (some of them bots) attempt to sink the tank of the other to the bottom of the screen. They do this through the use of varying artillery. Once a player's tank reaches the bottom of the confined area, that player is eliminated from the game.

Genre: Turn Based strategy == This game is perhaps the classic example of this genre. Each player may only move during his or her (or its in the case of a bot) turn. During this time, the player prepares both his shot (through the selection of angle, force of shot, and weapon) and his defense (position with respect to the other attacking players).

Game Interface: The player uses the left and right keys to situate his tank on the landscape. The player adjusts the firing angle by rotating the barrel (the angle that is used to determine the parabolic flight of the artillery is the angle between the barrel and the flat bottom of the tank). The game uses a scale bar that the user manipulates with the mouse in order to determine the force of the shot (influences how far the shell travels).

Goal: The goal of the game is to sink all of the other tanks to the bottom of the prescribed area (effectively destroying them), while maintaining a decent enough defensive position to maintain a surface position for one's own tank.
