War tends to be more fun on the small screen than in real life, and a game like Tanks of Fury is proof why. Gone is the blood, the trench-foot and the tragedy, and what we’re left with is a challenging Angry Birds-esque game with a military twist.
In Tanks of Fury, you control one of three commanders as you attempt to breach (presumably Nazi) enemy forces on beaches, in forests and, eventually, in space. After picking your colourful character, you get to customise your tank’s colour and logo, and then you’re ready for battle.
In Tanks of Fury, you have to balance firing shots from your tank at enemy positions with staying on the move to avoid getting hit. A couple of soldiers assist you in each mission, and keeping them alive will give you bonus points. It’s tough stuff, and the lack of a zoom option to give you a better perspective on the battlefield leads to some frustrating moments.
Get past this minor qualm though, and Tanks of Fury is a colourful and challenging game that’ll push your precision-firing skills and composure to the limit. The levels are plentiful and varied, with bonus objectives such as shooting down planes spicing up the gameplay. Though not fast-paced, the game can be relentless, and will satisfy the biggest of challenge-seekers.

The time has come. You must fight. Not because you have to, but because it’s fun!
