Tank You is supposed to be a round-based 2D vehicular combat game. The main libraries we use are Slick and JBox2D. For UI we use a slightly patched Thingle.

This is not an actual game yet. It is intended to be shown here to find the worst bugs and to get a general impression of what the game could become when it's ready.

Webstart (Requires Java 6)

Please tell us what you think. We will read on here but you can also discuss on our page, it's up to you.

Some questions:
  • Does handling and control of a tank feel right?
  • What shall we do when a tank lands on its "back"?
  • What would you recommend for animated turning of turrets? At the moment, we just turn them immediately, and thanks to the symmetric shape no body changes, but eventually we want that to be animated (and ideally represented in the logic).
  • It is not visible in this demo, but a tank can push another one as far as it wants. Is there a way to avoid that?
Oh, to avoid confusion, we are two, MentalFS and me (he should be registered here).

Well, thanks for the feedback so far.
Nice to see that it works on ubuntu as well.

Some win7 users seem to have problems
can someone verify or refute?
