Game Review: Join the battlefiled in Clash Tanks.io
Whether you’re a boy or girl, there are some games that attract the interest of everyone. Tank fights cater mostly to men but it’s not rare to see girls enjoy them and this applies to me perfectly. Although I haven’t been interested in modern warfare games, I had a lot of fun playing Clash Tank and while I know it won’t appeal to all of you, I’m sure many of you will find I quite enjoyable. So, let’s see what it has to offer, in detail.
In Clash Tank you navigate a tank in a battlefield that consists only of tanks, all navigated by real-life players from all around the globe. Playing against real people is always harder than facing an AI and if you’re a newbie, that game seems very chaotic and it won’t take long before your screen flashes the Game Over logo. The controls are simple; you tap on the bottom right of your screen to fire and on the left of your screen to move around. Aiming is easy because you can if your target is on firing range but the tanks move so fast that it might be too late when you fire. Escaping the enemies at the same time, is also something that will seem impossible at first, but with some practice it will all seem easier and you will be able to form strategies.
Your main goal is to defeat the boss tank and take control of it. When you receive damage you can make use of power ups that you can collect, to repair your tank and also use new abilities to make your task simpler. You can also speed up or slow down, all with the joystick on your screen. Not as important but still a nice feature, is the various skins you can unlock for your tank. You can choose from a plethora of skins to make yours stand out and make the experience more interesting.
As you can see, it is a fairly simple game in terms of gameplay but because you’re battling against other players, the challenge and adrenaline levels are raised greatly and it will be hard to stop once you get the grip of it.
You can purchase diamond and coin bundles that you can then use to unlock skins. Other than that there are no other IAPs and even this existing one is optional and not affecting the free gameplay at all.
Graphics & Sounds
Appearance-wise Clash Tank has simple graphics which works perfectly for this game, but the tank skins are very detailed designed and make each one stand out. The sound effects are very realistic too and perhaps you’d want to keep your volume low.
All in all, Clash Tanks is a battle game that will keep you busy an occupied when you want to play something simple yet challenging. It is not unique and the gameplay is repetitive, but it is fun and exciting nonetheless. Let us know your thoughts and impressions in the comments below.
