                     Tanks! a Short Overview.
                    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 Do you remember that great game called "TANKS !" which appeared
on several machines many years ago.? You don't.?,where have you been
all this time.? 
 Many an hour was had by kids and adults alike playing this simple
game at college and at work. Its one of those games, you either love
it or hate it.

 I am afraid I don't know who created the original Tanks,so I can not
give them any credit. ( If somebody knows who it was then please contact
me, I can then give them credit.! )

 Anyway Tanks is a 2 player game only ( Although I have known a few
people who play in on their own! ),each player is given a tank to
control on a landscape,the idea is to take it in turns to shoot at your
opponent. ( See.? I said it was simple ). You have control over the
angle of the tanks barrel and the velocity behind the shot.
 The winner is the person who scores a direct hit on their opponents
tank. ( Cooo, now there is a surprise.)  
 Thats the basic idea behind the original Tanks game, now here
is my version.


                             Amiga Tanx.
                            ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 Amiga Tanx follows the same lines as the original game,but with just
a few variations.

    a) Randomly generated Landscapes.
    b) Two main types of Landscapes.
    c) Variable gravity.
    d) Variable wind strength and direction.
    e) Targets to hit.
    f) Objects which affect the flight of the tanks shot.
    g) Full Stereo Sound.
    h) 50 frames a second screen update.
    i) Parallax scrolled play area.
    j) Over 100 colours on screen. ( Honest ! )
    
 I could go on ,but I won't.
