Indie Mac game publisher
has posted an update to ThinkTanks. The new version is ready for download in Mac OS X, Linux and Windows flavors, straight from the Web site.
ThinkTanks uses GarageGames Torque Game Engine to make a 3D action game that borrows from “classic” tank games that harken back to the early days of video game consoles and quarter-driven arcade games. Players man tanks as they span rolling terrain, collecting power ups and blasting each other. ThinkTanks features both solo play and online play, and enables players to create their own servers.
The game update features a variety of tweaks, according to the developers, including adjustments to target range, improvements to Heavy Tanks, easier aiming, the ability to pause for solo play and a variety of other changes.
Joe Maruschak, creative director for ThinkTanks developer BraveTree Productions explained that most of the tweaks are “small and subtle” but work together to improve the game’s fun factor. Many changes were the results of direct player feedback.
Also, the developers have launched a dedicated server for “Scrum League,” responding to “hard core Scrum players” who “wanted to play some serious Scrum.”
ThinkTanks costs US$19.95. The update is free for registered users.
