“It's absolutely a worthy title in its own right. The character banter is thoroughly entertaining, augmented by solid combat.”
3.5/5 – Clark A. - Digitally Downloaded

“Different in a strangely appealing way; and as a wargame, it is nicely designed and quite tense.”
Costik - Play This Thing

“If you're a military buff with a thing for anime then you'll definitely be interested in War of the Human Tanks.”

About This Game

War of the Human Tanks is a story driven strategy game with a gameplay reminiscent of Battleship and Chess, featuring a story of war, loyalty, sacrifice and human shaped tanks.

This story takes place in a land vaguely reminiscent of modern-day Japan. In the twenty years since the first Human Tank was developed, the war raging between the Empire of Japon and the Kingdom of Japon has turned into a proxy war fought between Human Tanks on both sides.

The Empire of Japon once ruled the entire land of Japon. Now diminished and cornered, the Empire prepares to make its last stand as the tanks of the Kingdom of Japon draw close to its capital. Shoutaro Daihon'ei, Lieutenant of the Imperial Army moves out to the battlefield, followed closely by the loyal Human Tanks in his company.

A simple grid based strategy game that the vast majority of people compare to battleships, you are given a set of conditions in the form of spaces and you need to assemble a squad of units to eliminate the other team's squad. In most cases by destroying all Commander type units on the other team you win, otherwise the objective specifies what you need to do for the win condition.

While quite grinding in places with the need to farm resources (so that you can build and unlock more tanks / upgrades), the story and it's characters are charming and once you get past the initial hurdle of the learning the basics - WotHT is a very satisfying game.

Though I will say on the unit that is known as Mr Cat ... it feels as though Fruitbat Factory were channeling the devil when they invented that creature.

A grid-based tactical game with major fog of war mechanics. Comparisons to battleship are apt. One hit is one kill in general, so things can get tense and turn around real fast. Downside is that the unit management mechanics encourage grinding to the extreme. In a game like this, an extra point of range or movement is invaluable.
