Tanks rolling through the streets of Tokyo, big seats with wheels and pedals, polygonal 3D graphics (three dimensions! three!), big bassy booms, and networked multiplayer left early teen me fascinated by Namco’s Tokyo Wars in arcades. I only ever had the money to play it twice (we were a penny falls family), but it’s stayed in my mind all along. I like games doing unlikely things in otherwise-serene modern cities. Well, today’s my lucky day, as folks are making a game which looks awfully similar.
Tokyo Warfare [official site] is an arcadey tank battler rolling through the streets of Tokyo, and has a free work-in-progress version you can download and play today.
