Product Description

Product Description

BATTLETANX is a wild tank-based shoot-'em-up for Game Boy Color. This one-player top-down shooter takes place in a post-apocalyptic world, where humanity is on the verge of extinction thanks to a virus that eliminated most of the female population. Huge gangs now rule the world with force and intolerance. Play as a lone soldier who sets out to save the world from these marauding misfits. Throughout the game you'll use three different tanks, each with its own capabilities. Collect power-ups to get even more bang for your buck. BATTLETANX has 15 levels based in five different American cities: Washington, San Francisco, Las Vegas, New York, and Los Angeles. Each of the locales is represented with a beautiful palette of colors that depict the explosive action in bright, vibrant tones. Save your progress through the missions with a password save function.


Since 3DO's current existence seems tied up in war games such as BattleTanx and Army Men, it is no surprise that both games would end up on Nintendo's Game Boy Color. Whereas Army Men delivered mission-style gameplay and strategy elements, 3DO's BattleTanx takes a more straightforward approach. Indeed, if you're the type of person into vicarious violence and copious amounts of destruction, BattleTanx may interest you. Make no mistake: BattleTanx's gameplay isn't the most complex in the world. The A button pushes your 20-ton behemoth forward, while B launches whatever weapon you happen to be packing at the time. With the exception of having to aim your cannon, destruction is a one-button affair. Navigate mazelike courses, blow up a few obstructions, and make it to the checkpoint - that's the game in a nutshell. Whether you choose to go through San Francisco, Washington DC, Las Vegas, or Los Angeles, traversing the game's 15 levels isn't exactly a difficult endeavor. Even casual gamers will have no problem beating this game on its hardest difficulty within the first day. Graphically speaking, BattleTanx is about as visually diverse as a still-life painting. Explosions are minimal, the buildings are repetitious, and enemy tanks lack variety. In fact, there are only five tanks throughout the entire game, and you'll witness them all within the first two levels. Still, the graphics get the job done, and there's no trace of slowdown, dropout, or other detrimental nuances inherent to 8-bit gaming. BattleTanx's sound comes across similarly - minimal but effective. The music is fitting without being repetitive, while explosions are adequate and firing effects passable. Unlike Army Men, which featured digitized voice snippets and a variety of sound effects, BattleTanx is strictly a Spartan affair when it comes to multimedia features. Regardless of the game's average presentation, it's the lack of a link-cable feature coupled with utterly simple single-player missions that ultimately proves to be BattleTanx's undoing. Though it's fun while it lasts, once the game is over, it's pretty much over. Other than to experience occasional fits of destruction, there's really no reason to replay the game once you've beaten it.--Frank Provo--Copyright © 1998 GameSpot Inc. All rights reserved.

I know I gave this one star but still it's not the worst but anyway it's so hard to find your way around unless you learn how to use the map and you hardly have any wepons to begin with and the bad guys have pervect speed,wepons,and armor.So DON'T BUY THIS GAME!

1.0 out of 5 stars Why did they waste their time and make this game? June 15, 2003
Ok. I was very gullible when I was 9 years old... This game is the WORST game I have ever played. Yeah, when you first get it, you seem all excited about tanks and guns, but it only has 3 tanks! Maps aren't that great either. Keep your [money] and go buy a few rubber-duckies, because at least those are more fun that this!

2.0 out of 5 stars 1% of the exitement of real tanks January 29, 2001
I'd reccomend this game only to a young gamer who really likes tanks. There are only 3 tanks to choose from, and only 2 weopon power­ups which aren't any good anyway. There are only about 4 different type of enemy which are easy to kill, and no end of stage bosses, Poor music and sound FX, and a unimaginative story line make this game look like it was thrown together over the weekend. Had potential.

3.0 out of 5 stars 13 year old gamer June 19, 2001
By A Customer
This game is awesome. It takes a while to get down the wierd steering bot after that it's fun. It's story line is kinda boring but thats what youd expect from gameboy.I gave it three stars because it took only a few hours to beat. Another good thing about it is that you can play individual stages after u beat the game. The real downfall of the game is that you can't save. After every level you get a stupid password that uses pictures of tanks instead of numbers or letters. I reccomend this game to everyone. It has it's bad sides but it's really cool
