Death Tank Zwei

Also know as: Death Tank | Duke Nukem 3D

Death Tank Zwei is a 2D real time multiplayer game that was bundled as a bonus game in the Sega Saturn version of Duke Nukem 3D. It can be unlocked in two ways: 1. Destroy every toilet in Duke Nukem 3D (including the secret level, Urea 51) 2. Have a Quake or Powerslave saved game on your system when you start up Duke Nukem 3D. It's a 2-7 player free for all deathmatch game. Each player controls a single "tank" which is represented by a different colored parallelogram with an arrow extending outwards. The tanks are dropped at random onto the map screen – a solid yellow terrain with a purple sky. You can move your tank slowly side to side across a simple line landscape, which contains all manner of varying dips and hills that somewhat limit your movement. The objective is to destroy all other tanks. Players can extend their arrows in different directions to add distance and aim their shots. Each tank has a standard shot which reloads every 2-3 seconds. Each shot transforms into a beautifully pixelated arching parabola that showers your opponents like a rain of death from above. The longer the match goes on, the more the terrain lowers and flattens until it eventually becomes a single plain. By destroying enemy tanks, you'll earn money you can spend on additional weapons and upgrades between rounds (the number of rounds can be set from 5 to 200). These weapons include things such as nukes, rolling mines, missiles, machine guns and a devastating cluster bomb called Death's Head.
