The Icon Bar: News and features: TANKS re-released as freeware

TANKS re-released as freeware

Posted by Jeffrey Lee on 17:57, 28/11/2004 | ,
Rik Griffin, author of Werewolf Software's TANKS, has now re-released the game as freeware. To quote Rik from his website,

Back in 1996 I wrote a game, based on the popular (and widely copied) " lob missiles over the hills " theme. TANKS was meant to be the ultimate version of the genre, packed full of wacky weapons and good gameplay. I like to think that I was successful, and when released commercially the game sold hundreds of copies.

TANKS has now been updated to run natively on RISC OS 5 (Although sound effects are currently missing), but should still run fine on RISC OS 3 and 4MB of RAM (2MB if you're lucky). Some more work and new features are planned for the future, so if you have any feedback then don't hesitate to contact Rik.
