Have You Tried Tanks Of Freedom? An Open Source Strategy Game

By - | Views: 7,964
We have covered Tanks of Freedom before, but this open source strategy game has changed quite a bit since the initial article. I am pleased to see that they have been doing regular releases, and since our initial article they have added new unit movement, new maps, added a new soundtrack, upped the colour palette from 16bit to 32bit and much more.

The game is made in the also open source Godot Engine, and it's quite impressive what they have so far.

I suggest checking it out if you haven't, as it's quite cool.

About the game (Official description)
Classic turn-based strategy game with two armies fighting against each other. Challenge yourself in campaign against AI or hot-seat battle with a friend. Using easy map editor you can create any imaginable scenario to play and share online for others to discover!

Each 32x32 sprite was handcrafted in gorgeous, 32 colour pixel art. Original soundtrack was made on Access Virus C and Korg Electribe. Sound effects were made on real GameBoy hardware. Game is open-source and runs smoothly thanks to Godot Engine.

TBH the graphics is too '80s for my liking. I can digest pixelated retro-like gfx in 2d platformers or in top-down view, but huge pixels and isometric view don't go well together.

The gameplay is very similar to advance wars

I played it and finished it a few months back and it was great already!!

I saw they have added tons of content!!!

I play many games with "pixels", included that one, but i don't like it much. I don't like the noise into pixel, i prefer clean surface, much more readable. About gameplay it's quite simplistic and boring after a couple of hours. I didn't like a lot, but still nice to try from time to time.

I'm not sure but it could be even ported to the dreamcast and run.
