Topic: RetroTank3D (WIP)

here are some early screenshots of my game project RetroTank3D.  Its a retro toon-style 3D remake of the tank portion of Atari Combat!

Re: RetroTank3D (WIP)

haahah! that looks great! pocket tanks seems to finally have found a worthy competitor smile

...any chance of a demo?

Re: RetroTank3D (WIP)

thank you smile  no demo yet but my vision is really coming together nicely.  i want to get the multiplayer functional before i put anything out.  although i only get an hour here and an hour there, things are humming along pretty well.  im really hoping for a complete game sometime in July.

Re: RetroTank3D (WIP)

I'm a fan of the guided shell mode. It's pretty freaking hard to control, but I'm way down with it's addition.

GREAT WORK - Keep it coming!
