Lasertank (also known as "Laser Tank") is a computer puzzle game requiring logical thinking to solve a variety of levels. It is open source and careware and can be used for free. The player must be able to concentrate and think ahead as in playing chess or checkers. Contradicting its name, Lasertank is in no way an action game. Although a player may try to solve a level quickly, there is no requirement to do so, so poor coordination and poor reflexes will not impede a player. Experience allows the player to learn a number of techniques and tricks that need to be used to solve difficult levels.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Lasertank is played on a 16 x 16 grid. The player must use the tank to reach a flag in every level without "dying". The player can move the tank in four directions and can fire a laser that is used to move or destroy objects. The amount of moves and shots it takes to complete a level are recorded in a high score list. The scores are then compared with the current "Global High Score" file.
