    TanksDS

    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.

    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.
