When thinking about which game to choose for this Game of the Day, I wanted to choose something a little bit different. Tanki Online is a charming, fast-paced, and completely free-to-play tank game that draws players in after just a few matches.
Initially the game seems very difficult to become competitive as a new player, but once you’re involved and have a half decent tank, it becomes a whole lot of fun.
Fast & Fun
A lot of “war” games these days try hard to add an aspect of realism and grit, by having historically accurate weapons and vehicles, and controls as close to the original as possible. This style of game is all well and good for history buffs and those that take gaming seriously, however Tanki Online is nothing of the sort.
Tanki Online has a number of out-of-this world weapons and tanks, and it sometimes feels like you’re pushing around toy vehicles making the laser and gun noises yourself. It is competitive, but doesn’t take itself too seriously. This is one of the main reasons why I have chosen Tanki Online to be the Game of the Day. It is a nice blend of fun action-packed gameplay, and fun ridiculousness that lets you just chill out and blow some other players up.
Although players can spend money on the game to get more crystals and upgrade their tank, it’s not too much of a barrier for new players. If you follow the advice that we gave then you should have no problem at all keeping up with the competition and destroying some tanks.
