    Since my mega-huge game Retro Knight is still chugging along (and getting a little tedious), I'm going to take a 2-week dev vacation and make Bomber Tanks, a 1player/PvP arcade game in the vein of Pac Man, Smash TV, Tank Force.

    Tank Force:

    1 Player Mode: Play a level-based series of challenges. Blow up other tanks. Collect prizes Smash TV style which are later converted to Gold upon Game Over. Levels are fairly random (still working on the details), so each time you play, it seems a little different. Lots of powerups, different enemies, and bonus stages.

    Battle Mode: Spend your Gold to build a Fort. Buy Drone Tanks. Send Drones to attack other people's Forts. The more damage your drones cause, the more Gold you can get in return. If you destroy the other player's Fort entirely... you get ALL their Gold.

    Defender Mode: Defender Mode turns on if you are attacked by another player. 1 Player Mode and Battle Mode are turned off. In Defender Mode, you drive around your Fort and fight other player's Drones. Do not let them finish off your Fort, or its a big, fat GAME OVER for you. You will know the name of the person who attacked you, so you can retaliate.

    I'm gonna see if I can crap this game out in 2 weeks. Stay tuned.
