Description

Glitch Tank is a digital board game in which two players control tanks and try to destroy each other by playing randomised action cards.

History

Glitch Tank was developed as part of Kompendium, an album of small 2-player games (and is available for free on PC and Mac as part of that). But it turned out to be a much better fit for a touch-screen, so it was developed into a standalone game adding AI, different modes, and a variety of rare events and map features.

Features

  • Fast-paced random matches.
  • Real-time and turn-based modes.
  • 2-player and AI modes.

      • "Glitch Tank also sports chiptune sound design that will ignite the nostalgia engines of anyone who grew up on the Atari 2600. But it operates on the kind of clever, up-to-date blueprint that really shows how far games have come since the wood-grained box launched a revolution across the world."

      • "Le gameplay de Glitch Tank est finalement un pur produit de Michael Brough : des contrôles extrêmement simple dont les combinaisons et l’effet sur le système font émerger une complexité à la limite du jeu d’échec."
