How To Play
Click the map button to bring up an overview of the field. You can move the view around using the scope arrows. Click anywhere on the map to teleport there.
Use the mine button to plant mines around your tank. Mines block the path of enemy tanks. Be careful, enemy mines are invisible until you or an ally has detected them with radar!
The radar button allows you to scan a portion of the screen. This will reveal hidden objects such as fuel, equipment, and enemy mines.
The equipment panel lets you control how you use your tank's precious equipment. Hover the mouse over the equipment icons to see how much inventory you have gathered. Click on an icon to enable or disable use of that type of equipment in battle.
Use the scope arrows to adjust the screen view without moving your tank. Press the scope button in the middle to center the view around your tank. The scope controls can also be used when the map screen is open.
Fuel is the most important resource in the game. Your tank's fuel is used up when you move, shoot, teleport, lay mines, or get hit by an opponent. If your fuel runs empty your tank will be deactivated and demoted a rank!
All tanks begin at Recruit and advance towards the highest rank, General. Click on the experience bar for information on how to advance to the next rank. Higher ranks carry more fuel and equipment.
Using dual shots, your tank can fire two shots at once, causing twice the damage of a regular shot. When shooting an enemy that has armor shields on, dual shots result in the loss of two armors at a time.
Missile shots are useful for shooting over mountains, obstacles, or other tanks that are in the way of your opponent.
Homing shots will follow a target if it happens to move while you are shooting. These are useful for chasing an opponent.
Armor shields protect your tank from enemy fire and conserve fuel. Every time your tank is shot, an armor shield will be used up instead of fuel. If your tank is hit by a dual shot, one armor shield will block one of the dual shots but NOT both of them. Use armor shields when you're low on fuel to avoid being deactivated.
Extra radars will scan the entire screen instead of just a portion of it. Use these to uncover lots of fuel or equipment at once.
