Tanki Online is a 3D browser based tank game. It is a free-to-play MMO-shooter with real-time PvP-battles built on Flash technology. Players fight each other online in a fully 3D arena, earning in-game currency and advancing their tanks to better their armour and weapons.
The games features are close to real physics so tanks can get stuck in deep pits, overturn or fall from the bridge. Players can fight individually in the Death Match, form teams in the Team Death Match or hunt down the flag in the Capture the Flag mode. You can gain experience and crystals in a variety of ways, including destroying enemies, healing allies, and capturing flags. The more experience you get, the higher your rank will be and overall the better chance you will have defeating lower ranked players.
There are many types of armour, weapons and bonuses available. Higher ranks unlock new coats, turrets, armour and supplies. All of these can be bought in the Garage using the in-game currency — crystals. You can gain crystals in battles, buy them (with real money) or get them as a gift for inviting your friends to the game.
I’ve been playing this game for over a year and I have enjoyed it since the beginning. The game is constantly being updated and its growing community is very active. It’s possible to ask any questions about the game regarding the bugs you’ve encountered or raise complaints about your experience. To my surprise, questions are typically answered within 2 hours either by your fellow gamers or the developers themselves which is always a bonus.
This game is very addictive as I’ve found it. The one thing I particularly like about it is how simple the game’s mechanics are and yet very fun to play. For you guys who don’t have a powerful gaming computer, this game can almost run on any computer without the experience of glitches or anything technical.
There are various weapons in the game and each gives a unique experience and different gameplay. “So if you ever feel anyway close to being bored change the weapon”. Personally, I love using particular sets of weapons which are: real gun, Shaft and the Shotgun they pack a real punch to the enemies. If that doesn’t suit you, there are many other weapons and hull to choose from.
All in all, I have found no faults during the year I’ve played this game. It has some bugs, but they have never affected the way I play the game. After all, we’re only humans.
I would recommend this game to anyone because I find it good, to an extent where I pour hours and hours of my day playing it. Also if you think you have a better computer I would highly recommend you to test out Tanki X. It’s made by the same people who made Tanki Online. This version is made using Unreal Engine, so you can expect the graphics to be top-notch.
