Recensies

“Tank Universal is een geweldige combinatie van de film Tron en het spel Battlezone. Dit spel is zoveel meer dan alleen maar een leuke afleiding voor tussendoor, en voor de indie-ontwikkelingscommunity is het een waar voorbeeld.”
78% – GameFocus

“Een van de best bewaarde geheimen van deze zomer. Dit spel heeft naast de bekende run and gun-gameplay ook de nodige strategie-gameplay in huis. De kunst is juist om de wil te vinden om te stoppen met dit spel. Het is vrij verslavend.”

Wow. This game surprised me. Very fun game & very unique in some aspects, the game gives off a neat Tron like feel, if Tron was a complete warzone anyway.

Story wise Tank Universal delivers, I'm only a few hours into the main story but it's pretty fun, the only dissapointment is that they set it up that you're some old guy using a simulation helmet.. ruins a bit of immersion, but oh well! The actual story is pretty fun to play but so far I've realised there's a lot of empty parts of the game where you're just driving endlessly to get to your next objective which can be a bit drab.

When you're actually in a battle though the game is very exciting to play, alongside a ranking up system with Steam achievements to match your rank the game can make it feel rewarding to excel in combat.

Overall? Great game but the story can drag on a bit, and there's a lack of a proper skirmish mode (Maybe you unlock it when you complete the game?) -Also the music they have in the game.. perfect, well suited to it's theme. 8/10

I would love to see these developers have a kickstarter to make a much more advanced version of the game too.

A strange Tron like tank driving game that I had a lot of fun playing. There was some sort of story line to the game, but it was very strange, but not nearly as hard to follow as Eye: Divine Cybermancy. The tank was not too hard to learn to control, the only thing that took a bit of work for me was aiming the arc of the cannon at high speed long distance battle. Much of the game has you doing roughly the same thing over and over again, with more elements added on though. Capture the flag, but as the game goes on the "flag" gets harder and harder to get to. But there are a few times you have to get out of your tank to do things, like try to hold on for dear life as you ride a virtual goat or something! As a whole the game is very enjoyable, but it doesn't really do anything new.

This game is one of those games I picked up for cheap and looked at the screenshots to see a "Tron" like game with tanks, I thought to my self, that looks fun, ill play it.

Honestly, I do not regret this purchase, Yeah sure the graphics may be dated, The framerate might be a issue for some (capped at 30 I believe, but that never stopped me from having fun), but seeing past all this, is not a bad game.

Fun for those who want to burn up some time or want to witness a story in-between a base building/Tank warfare game.

But hands down the best part of this game, you get to ride a sheep at one point, annoying at first to control but fun.

If you are someone who can see past problems and isn't bothered by them, get this game and waste a few hours on it, you might actually like it.

English Review
This game is terrible. Graphics weak, 3D environment I really do not like. It is a game where you just drive your tank and you have to get to a certain point and shoot other tanks.
My rating 1/10.

Slovak Review
Táto hra je strašná. Grafika slabá, prostredie 3D veľmi sa mi nepáči. Je to hra, kde proste riadite tank a musíte sa dostávať na určité miesta a strielať ostatné tanky.
Moje hodnotenie 1/10.

This is TRON, 1990's style.

I say this with love for this game, Tank Universal, that without directly infringing on copyright the authors have adapted the game style around our favorite classic movie in an impressive way! Tank Universal sticks to just the tank battles rather than all the different gaming styles it's obvious inspiration, the movie TRON, taught us about. This indie developer hit the mark with a sweet blend of tank simulation that is fun to play. It really feels like you are another human wandering the computer plains in a parallel story to the original TRON movie.

The game only has one real weakness, it wasn't an officially licenses TRON game. Because of this it doesn't have the strongest story line in terms of dialog and has to makes up for it in presentation. It does this in spades however and can keep you engrossed as you truly feel like you are alive in the original TRON world. Most of the time, in game, I felt as though a greater story line could have come about if only the author wasn't skirting copyright. There is an epic sense of why you are playing that feels like it needs stated outright. This is obvious, for those of us who have seen the original TRON. Without being able to state the complete and rather epic story that is hidden within Tank Universals premise, the story comes off shallow and lacking. It feels like we missed the main plot line of something truly epic. Despite this flaw, the game is incredibly fun.

This game is great in what it does, it does WELL! The tank battles are fun, and can be quite challenging! The battlefield is a living environment and there are some decent physics at play. There is even a small amount of strategy in how you attack directly affects the results of battles. Watch as the enemy rebuilds his fortress if you slack off on the attack; beware indirect fire, and call in a Titan to literally tear down your enemies walls.

I only wish that Tank Universal had been a licensed TRON game as this is what the first 3D TRON game should have been. The licensed official game should have been the sequel to this one! All fans of the movie and or tank battles should try this game out!

A great game about tank skirmishing in 80's-version-of-the-future-worlds. The player goes up against a giant eyeball overlord along with men from a resistance movement. Together they fight past vast amounts of enemy vehicles such as tanks, artillery, and even ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ bombers.
The story is more or less just there so people won't complain about lack of a story, and the read-only dialogue is laughably bad at times, but the game contains a lot of fun to be had and some really unexpected twists.
Once you beat the campaign, you can test your strength in the "skirmish" mode, where you have 20 minutes to kill as many enemies, of all types, as possible, and try not to die in the process.

However, there are a few downsides to this game:
  • no multiplayer whatsoever
  • capped at 30fps
  • you don't have a reliable way to deal with swarms of enemies

This game is one of a two-part series, and there is a Tank Universal 2 in the works. Hopefully we see some modernization in it, I would absolutely love to skirmish with real players.

Overall, I really like this game, and definately recommend it, but know that replayability is extremely limited and there is no multiplayer.

Recommended: A TRON-inspired romp made with some obvious heart and care that might not set the world on fire, but is a well-executed and well-designed game.

Everything is covered in "Shiny Space Glue" and is basicly bleach for the eyes. Horribly easy.The only challenge here is how long you can play before your stomache aches.And for me that was an hour.Ihad no fun here.I just wanted to get it over with.But it never ends.Each level is just fighting in the same place alone over and over and I kept wondering if I was lost or the gaem was broken.The story is that you yes "You" (nobody inb particluar) are the best thing since canned bread to happen to the resistance.Why is the resistance important?I have no idea!In the beggining of the game "You" (old man with cancer or something) puts on a VR helemet his doctor perscribed and walk down a long and borring green catwalk until your told you got to play with realy slow ai companions in some tank thing.The restistance then transmits a message along the lines of "0mG H33tler haS SEDUp a TWRAP to K3el U ListniN t0 Us go D0wn utheR pAthway TOO fR3D/UM" and i refused to listen.Afterwards i died in a cutsene and had to wait about 5 minuites before choosing again.

I follow the linear path to the resistance and one blew up and thats about how important they are.Then "U" get to go on sooper dangrus misun to do...somethin.So you trek through nowhere to get nowhere and thats the ENTIRE game.



1/10 worst game in the universe.

A highly sopisticated Tron like game where you alternate between controlling a 65 year old man, and a 65 year old man driving a vehicle with all the handling of a refrigerator precariously perched atop a unicycle.

You're probably reading this because you liked the tank scenes in the movie Tron.
Not coincidentally, Meridian4 made Tank Universal because THEY liked the tank scenes in Tron.
And I bought it because I like the... well, you know. And it definitely has a certain Tron vibe, only instead of Jeff Bridges, the protagonist is a bored, incapacitated old man. Compelling!

Am I glad I bought it? Yes, because now I don't have to wonder if I was missing out on something great. So IS Tank Universal great? No. Is it worth your time as a die-hard Tron fan? Possibly. And if you've never seen Tron? Less, um... possibly.

Ask yourself:
"Do I enjoy Tron-inspired games where the primary mechanic is mentally calculating how to hit moving targets from a moving vehicle on sloped sufaces with a relatively slow-moving projectile that is affected by gravity (even though the existance of gravity in a digital world makes no sense)?"
If the answer is "yes" and you have $5 to spare, buy Tank Universal.

But also ask yourself:
"Am I deeply annoyed by incoherent/irrelevant storylines, especially when I'm forced to endure them in lengthy, unskippable cinematics?"
"Do my eyes roll back into my head during tedious, unnecessary travel sequences through static environments with no interaction?"
"Do I have a hard time letting go of my nagging sensation that a game, for some unknown reason, isn't as good as it could have been?"
"Did I hate Tron?"
If the answer is "yes" to any of these, consider passing over Tank Universal. Maybe the tank moved a little too slugishly, or maybe the upgrading & leveling system lacked the right incentives or rewards. I could never figure it out. The game always felt like off-brand Legos: that kind that fit together, though not quite right, and never with that secure, satisfying "click" of precision. Don't get me wrong, it's still fun, but why didn't Grandma just buy EXACTLY what I WROTE on my *** **** LIST!?!?

Sorry, I'm thinking of my 9th birthday. What were we talking about again?

Damn good fun. Tron style tank warfare, and digital sheep riding simulator. Also one of the very first indie games to feature on steam. Paid full price back in the day and don't regret it.

Tank Universal is a great throwback to VR, TRON, Battlezone, and just plain old-school gaming full of action and strategy.It's plain as day that Tank Universal is not a professional game - the basic animation, the chunky graphics, the lack of any voice acting whatsoever - but it clearly has heart. While not perfect, for its price, indie roots and throw back to the movie “Tron”, this is a must buy for action gamers.

Now, this was the first legit PC game I've ever played on a computer. I mean, back when I was three and four, I'd play flash pinball on the massive monitor that we used to have, but once we got a laptop, I started indulging in the internet and downloadable games. This was the very first game I downloaded, and I have to say, I began my internet life on the right foot.

This game has been and always will be my favorite game. The cutscenes can be a little slow, but everything is made up for in the strategy and the style and look of the game. I love the aspect of adventuring into unknown areas, especially in this game.

If you enjoy some strategy with action and something interesting, this is definitely a game you should play.

I really love this little indie game!

As the description says you drive a tank in a TRON-like computer system. The missions you have to fullfill have a very wide spectrum, so you will not get bored with always the same routine like in other games. You can also upgrade your tank with very cool new weapons.

I recommend everyone to try at least the demo!

Btw there is a Tank Universal 2 in developement, but because the Team behind this game is only one person it will take a while until you see a sequel. More sales might shorten the time for release. ;-)

Are you a child of the 80's? Do you like TRON? Then you should probably play this game, because it is very much like an alternate version of "the Grid", with tank battles, exploration and a sprinkling of 'Battlezone' type strategy.
No light cycles though...
