    Battlegear(alpha)'s review

    Published: 2014-03-27, by Peter Warrior.

    Guide your tank through the maze and blast walls and enemies alike

    • Enjoyable gameplay
    • Level editor
    • Below average technical performance
    • Needs more variety

    "Maze tanks"

    Battlegear is a game where you control a tank and have to get out from a maze. It's controlled by dual on-screen sticks left to ride and right to open fire, which work better than expected. Corners and corridors are defended by anti-tank turrets and other tanks.

    As far as it's in the alpha stage, graphics, animations, sound and overall technical performance is quite below average. Gameplay is smooth nonetheless, and although is really simple it allows some sneak attacks and tactics on-the-fly, mainly going a step forward over a corner, shot, and go back to cover.

    A neat addition is the level editor and the chance to share your levels with your friends.

    At the end of the day, a game enjoyable by old school gamers, dinosaurs and younglings, even though hit deserves further development in all areas and more enemies, perhaps some traps, and stuff.

    This version comes for free, with ads showing full-screen between matches.
