2d tank game?

Post by SomePerson » Thu Nov 15, 2007 8:00 pm

Been looking for some old games that I played a long time ago. I have found a few, such as jetpack and hover, but i am looking for some tank game where everything is composed of green lines with a black background. You control a tank and you shoot at other tanks. There is also a few powerups. Anyone know what it is?

I had also that one in mind, but I thought it was a bit to advanced regarding his description.
Anyway, if is, HotU has em:

A 2D tank game on a black background could be:

You mean Battle Zone?...

It had some shapes to navigate around, tanks to fight. The tanks turned into triangle shape tanks after a certain level, and there were buzz-bombs that would drop-down now and then to seek you out.

Green lines, black background, yeah I think you're right.

Spectre for Mac (B&W): (AGAIN nothing on Moby for Mac, those Mac adepts are really lazy bums !)

[EDIT]
As the Mac users seems to be too lazy to make and upload pics for the Mac games, I made my own ones.
Those are some screenies from Spectre color for Mac.
(They are from the French version)

[EDIT²]
Just realised the previous screenies are from Supreme Spectre for Mac.
This one I took is from Spectre 1.0 (English version this time) for Mac:
