Death Tank coming to Arcade

Death Tank coming to Arcade

Snowblind Studios has announced Death Tank for Xbox Live Arcade, featuring up to eight players on Xbox Live. The game is a remake of the popular classic, and if you don't remember it now you will by watching the announcement trailer. Personally I can't wait for the madness in online multiplayer.

There is only one of these games that rocks, and it is Scorched Earth. That game is so awesome :D

Oh shi...this is real time? Okay then, screw scorched earth, this just bumped it :D

I am kinda disappointed that I didn't see any kind of damage being done to the environment like mountains having blast holes .Or mountains getting smaller & such from the bombs But I like the graphics though i might get it.

dude, you need a new pair of glasses... second 38.
If you can't see that, make an apointment with an eye doctor, ASAP. I'm worryed about your health. really.

It's obvious they are taking the realistic route, grenades don't do massive holes in the environment .

This. Isn't. TURN BASED.

Wasn't the original turn based? There must've been more than one version then. I remember playing this on my old PC.

Death Tank is a very popular visual "clone" of Scorched Earth.

Scorched Earth is turn-based. This, is not.
(can't find better shots)

your probably confused to "what" is "who".

I think that's really one of the biggest things that makes Worms and Worms clones not fun to me. Both the trail and error and the way you take turns, always gives one player a huge advantage, this game is looking really great IMO can't wait for it.

There is no trial and error for Worms pros.

I think the trial and error part is the most fun about worms. If you have a mind for physics (even on a basic "feel for it" level) and the game does well in making sure it abides by those rules, then you can figure out what you need in order to get a hit. I like these games because if you're playing with more casual players, it's fun to have the heat turn up when you need that last hit and miss by a few centimeters.
