Abrams Battle Tank

07/08/2009

The M1 Abrams is a US battle tank which, according to Wikipedia, was used in battle in the ’90 Gulf war and the ’03 Iraq war. The Abrams Battle Tank game is from 1988. Because no prior battles had been fought with the tank, public enemy number 1 at the time was picked: the Soviets. You’ll fight a series of fictional battles against a (quoting the manual) “large mediocre force” of Soviet tanks. I think I can see some Cold War propaganda seeping through in this game.

Well, my hopes were rather quickly smashed. This game is not quite related to Pitfall. It’s a 3D Tetris game. I’ve played a fair bit of Blockout (also to be reviewed on the site, around number 100 in the queue) and this looks very, very alike. I think it has a higher resolution, but this actually does not help the game as the rotation animations aren’t nearly as smooth as I remember them from Blockout. Also, it’s made 5 years later.
