Terratech's Free DIY Sumo Tank Demo

Terratech it is, though. We had a look at the jolly, Legoy vehicular combat game’s Kickstarter last month, but they’ve now added an appealingly ridiculous local multiplayer mode to it, and even released an updated demo to show it off. It’s The Incredible Machine does Robot Wars, basically.

Thanks, tanks. Thanks.
