    Hi I have been working on a new game for quite some time.
    It is inspired by games like Tank Wars, Pocket Tanks and Death Tanks.

    Features:
    * Blast your friends or foes into pieces
    * Play via LAN and/or internet. Internet games are registered on a server list. (no ip sharing necessary)
    * Kill enemies to earn money and buy new weapons

    Credits:
    Programming: Sulfyr
    Graphics: WioWao
    Music: Kevin MacLeod

    Version 0.1 is ready. It works pretty well for two players but i haven't been able to test it for more players.
    There are still many things that i wish to implement/improve. Please report any errors you might find. I will try to fix them as soon as possible, but i am very busy with school at the moment.

    Download link: TanksDS 0.1
    Webpage: TanksDS

    Controls:
    Left / Right - turn cannon.
    Up / Down - adjust power.
    L / R - drive.
    A - shoot.
    B - hold B and push left/right to change weapon.
    A few screenshots:

    How to host online:
    You need to setup port forwarding for the port you choose in the host menu.
    If you don't know what this means or how to do it, check out http://portforward.com/.
    Things that i would like to include in the next version:
    * UPNP support (automatic portforwarding).
    * Wifi options. Access point discovery + setup.
    * Improved error reporting.
    * Bots.
    Bugs:
    * If you join a game in progress, the level might not be rendered during the first round.
    * Tank physics sometimes bugs.
    * Sometimes stats (scores,cash,kills,deaths) bugs.

    Does this have a single player mode (for all the Billy-No-Mates (including me) out there)?

    It would be more cool something like Combat for the Atari 2600.

    To try the game without having a mate to play with you can:

    - Create a server.
    - When on the "Waiting for players" screen hold select and press "Done".
    - Game starts, but it ends as soon as 1 shell hits the ground.

    I would like to add bots, but I don't plan on making an entire single player / campaign mode.
