“It's absolutely a worthy title in its own right. The character banter is thoroughly entertaining, augmented by solid combat.”

Acerca de este juego

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.

Although I am not interested in strategy games that much, I find this game to be very enjoyable. When I bought this game, I bought it for the art style and the whole “human tank” concept. Then when I played the game, I found it really engaging. The gameplay is very unique for a strategy game and the story has more depth than I expected for a game revolving around “human tanks.” When I first started playing this game, its pacing was okay. It was a little slow, but still in enjoyable. When I reached the latter stages and upgraded all of my tanks completely, the game was so fast paced it was insane. I was able to kill entire armies before they even got a chance to move! I personally really like the music for this game. Although, I can see people really despising some of the songs. So I recommend for anyone just getting into this series to just buy this game solo. Then, if you like this game and its soundtrack, buy the second game with the soundtrack bundle. Both soundtrack bundles share the same soundtrack anyway.

Anime storyline, not in a bad way just not really great either.

The real question is do you like like playing chess with cutesy pieces that carry guns or explode violently?

and being wiped out by a cat(s)!

At first sight, you can think this is strange game, since the tanks are humans. But if u are fan of Kantai Colection or Upotte, this isnt a problem; well if in Kancolle have Shipfu and Upotte have Gunfu, maybe u can find your Tankfu here. Its a vn game mixed with strategy game, so the battle system is strategy based in turns, where every turn u control your human tanks and need reach certain objectives to win the battle. In your standby phase, u can dev new tools to upgrade your tankfu since they can be destroyed or you can dev new tankfu models. For story, is very funny and hilarious.

Pros:
- Well, in otaku world have every type of waifu, so why not Tankfu?
- The story is very funny

Cons:
- If u are a neko lover, dont play this one in mission bonus; because they are a hell cat, with few turn they can destroy your army. But if u win, can have neko as ally.

You're a guy with a cute little sister. Also, the tanks are like little sisters. But then they die... But then you make new ones to replace the old ones. 10/10 would replace loli tanks again.

Gamplay is cut into two parts.
There is the Visual Novel part which tells you a simple but funny story and then you have the battleship/chess aspect.
The game have found a nice balance between showing you the story part and at ample oppotunities allows you to switch to
battleship/chess mode.
My only gripe here is that you can never seem to play until you've elimated all enemy units in "Free Battle mode"

Excellent upbeat music playing in background.
The choice of music is upbeat and suits to up-tempo gameplay that it provides.
The characters while basic are totally awesome.
While in game mode they look like little pictures on a chessboard and the animation while in combat are always the same, it doesn't get boring.
On the otherhand when in visual novel mode, They still look simple and cute but the background that have been chosen are really interesting and make it a blast to follow the story instead of simply clicking through it rapidly.

I can highly recommened this game to all.
Especially if you are into "battleships" type of game.

This is a great game, for a discounted price.

Keep in mind, this is no 100% Orange Juice and although the humor is there some of the time.. it's kind of a gamble when that's going to be and when it is there.. it seems like they drag it out a bit too much. The storyline took way too long to get into the actual gameplay.

The gameplay itself is.. ok. It's like minesweeper.. sort of,..with tanks? If that makes sense?

You build tanks, you deploy tanks, you kamikaze tanks.. you distract tanks, you guess at enemy positions, you recon spots and find enemies, etc. You can build essentially buff items too.

That's pretty much the game. Pretty simple, not too bad for maybe $2 to $3. $10 is far too much as the game is far too simplistic. If you want a game from this company I would recommend 100% Orange Juice more. It's much more fun and has tons of replayability.. this does not.

This is one game unless it's on extreme sale for their sequal.. I will not be getting.

Everyone is a cute chibi with weapons 10x bigger than themselves (later in the game though).
The story is the essence of a cliche anime. Cheerful little sis, straight-laced tsunder-ish big sis figure, secret weapons, clouded pasts...It's even got an opening and an ending before/after each mission.

A cute little gameplay VN. Story is nothing too special but not entirely bad either. But the real reason to play is the RTS section. It plays sorta like battleship and chess combined but is more fun than it sounds. If you think you'll have a fun time strategizing how to destroy the enemy's little girls before they destroy your own little girls then this is definitely a worthwhile pickup.

*War of the waifus. Title error that steam made. If you've played any grid based strategy game before you'll probably like this. It's like Battleships, but with waifus. No tutorial, but the game isn't very hard to figure out how to play. One thing that bothers me is that your units don't move very far very quickly, but this game is a lot of fun

The graphics are incredibly cheap. However, it passed an important test: I had a really hard time stopping once the game started

The programmer of this game knew what he was doing. Despite the cheap graphics, there is a polish to the game. The gameplay overall is solid, and the story is actually somewhat good. An easy game to underestimate due to the presentation, but overall enjoyable

I can't help but be reminded of Paw Patrol for some reason

"¿Desea abortar?", me pregunta el juego antes de salir. Pero la pregunta está mal hecha. No me la deberían hacer a mí, sino a los padres de los programadores cuando decidieron tener hijos.

Intentaré explicarlo. El juego, este juego, es para echar la papilla. Se trata de un supuesto miembro del género estratégico basado en hexágonos. Un jueguecito cuyo comienzo le obligará a saltarse más de cien diálogos iniciales con el ratón o el teclado Y digo saltarse porque, como cometa la aberración de intentar leerlos, perderá quince minutos de su vida escuchando una historia estúpida.

Historia que da pie a un juego con una calidad gráfica penosa. Tan mala que es incluso inferior a la de una SuperNintendo (si no fuese por la resolución, todo lo demás podría hacerlo aquella consola de 16 bits). A partir de ese punto, y con el acompañamiento de una música machacona y unos efectos de sonidos insidiosos, deberá intentar desarrollar una estrategia sobre un tablero de hexágonos para matar a su oponente.

Si le dijo que es una m1erda blandita y esponjosa, me estoy quedando cortísimo. De modo que ya sabe lo que tiene que hacer. O no lo compre, o cómpreselo y regáleselo a algún c4pullo al que quiera ver muerto de cáncer cerebral.

War of the Human tanks plays like a sort of grid-based strategy game in the vein of battleship, but with significantly more tactical options and threats than the board game classic. Unit abilities can light up fog of war, kill enemies at greater range, self-destruct your unit for a wide swathe of, well, destruction, and so on. Between missions, you spend supplies gained from previous sorties to upgrade and replenish your army, increasing their effectiveness, area of effect of attacks, range, and so on.

Its titular unit, the human tanks, are mass-produced military personnel who for some unknown reason look like cute young women and charge fearlessly to their doom at your command. If that sounds too weird for you, this game may not be for you. But if you can look past that strange outer layer and the (gasp!) DREADED ANIME AESTHETIC (the horror!) this game offers a lot of fun and deep tactical gameplay.

The plot is presented in a visual novel sort of style between missions, so you will have to do a lot of reading. But there is plenty of (dark) humor to be found, and some surprisingly deep themes for such a wacky game.

Also, its soundtrack is seriously catchy and unique.

I personally ADORE this game, and if you have any interest in tactical RPGs like advance wars or any other strategy title really, I think you could do a lot worse than War of the Human Tanks. If nothing else, try the demo - it gives five levels of playtime, plenty to decide on whether this game is for you.

War Of The Human Tanks has quite the weird premise in that, as you can guess, that the tanks used in battle are human or at least things that act and look human. The game has been developed by Yakiniku Banzai and published by Fruitbat Factory, and you can tell inspiration has come from the classic game of Battleship with an evolution to the formula. a bold task to undertake and one that has been well executed. It’s hard not to compare War Of The Human Tanks to battleship where you place your pieces on the board, while the AI does the same though neither side can see where the enemy positions are. Your pieces are combined of Command units which if destroyed means you lose the battle,Shock units that are basically bombs,Assault units that are the basic infantry, Battery that can do long range damage, Scouts which do recon, Interceptors which defend your units from incoming missiles and finally the Samurai/Knight tanks which are the only units that can evade attacks.These seven types are unlocked over the course of the campaign, and after each battle you can upgrade them by developing units with more weapons or modules that give certain advantages to different tanks. It's a good system to have because it keeps the game interesting as you decide how to shape your army as the battles get tougher.The actual war is mix of anticipation and luck.In War Of The Human Tanks the pieces move around, so at one point you may discover where a unit is then the next second that enemy could have moved onto one of the unknown squares.Its a mechanic that can lead to some tense battles, but they never stray into frustrating.In fact when you lose a battle it doesn’t seem unfair but instead a lesson, as you work out which tanks the enemy is fielding and figure out how to counter them. The game’s campaign is designed like it is a TV show with intros and end credits present before and after each battle. There will be story scenes before the battle giving both a background and adding more depth to the characters, then scenes after the battle showing character reactions. What I also liked is that outside of key battles you didn’t have to win them for the story to progress.If you’re looking for a cheap strategy title then this is definitely for you.

Human-like Tanks: what's not to like. Gameplay is easy enough; I found it to be like a watered-down version of Advance Wars, with one of the largest divergences being tile size = hit points (1x1 unit is killed/destroyed by one hit, with a few exceptions).

I liked the storyline between battles too. If you read in other reviews about how the cutscenes were too long; you can speed it up by holding down Spacebar, if I remember correctly. You can also unlock and replay maps, if you're not into the main storyline.

Get the game, or you'll make Heshiko cry a second tear.

Pros:
Good fun for a cheap price.
Decent customization.
Funny (if maybe a little odd) humor.
Better plot than expected for simplistic graphics.

Cons:
Simple graphics (...who cares)
Can be a bit long winded sometimes with dialogue. (If you really wanted to though you could skip past it but you'd be missing out imo)
It's a bit easy so far (I haven't beaten the game or anything though yet, so this might change)
Edit: an unintentional bug gave me unlimited money, it's already been fixed probably why it was so easy haha (this shows good support for the game too!)

This is a weird game.

You don't really need my review to see this, it is after all a strategy game where all the tanks are at the same time anime girls and the setting complete accepts both aspects of this somehow.
I know that these anthropomorphic representations of war vehicles are not unheard of in anime / Japanese media, but for me it took some getting used to.

Don't let the look of the cutscenes fool you though, this isn't really a visual novel, nor will you end up dating your tanks. It's not quite that far out there. This is, first and foremost, a tactical strategy game.

Your troops are deployed (at specific positions of your choice in the landing area) in a hexagonal grid representing the battlefield, and you move them around in a turn based manner. The presentation is very clean and static, with no real detailing on terrain or anything. This isn't necessarily a good thing, but I managed to look past it eventually.

There are various classes of human tank, each fulfilling different roles on the battlefield. From reconnaissance scouts to suicide bombers to artillery installations to the run of the mill tank.
Each of these types can be improved with resources won from battles, allowing you to construct direct upgrades to the original types (usually slightly more expensively than the older one).
There is plenty to unlock, and some of the unlocks even have story tied to them when you manage to get there, but getting everything can be quite the grind.

The story takes place in an alternate-history Japan, where two factions are fighting for control of the land. You are a lieutenant in charge of a recently reinstated branch of the imperial army, and manage your human tanks with the help of your trusted mechanic and a newly assigned advisor / observer sent by high command (both also anime girls, because of course they are). The story takes some twists and turns and was a lot more interesting and entertaining than I expected, basic anime clichés aside, and I was happy with how it was brought to its conclusion.

I got one of, I think, four possible endings and the player is free to start over after they've reached an ending and take their army as-is into a new game. Between missions you are also able to replay any previously cleared mission (and a variety of side missions), which I feel is a nice touch.

I would recommend this game to players looking for a decently long, very Japanese strategy game with a solid focus on story and replayability.
There is a sequel out as well, I have not yet had a chance to try it but this first instalment forms a complete, stand alone story.

I'm a long time fan of the Fire Emblem series, as well as the Final Fantasy Tactics series. I'm one of those people who'll get mad and reset whenever someone dies. In my fantasy wars, my army destroys it's enemies mercilessly without any casualties.

This game did some bad things to me.

One of the first units they gave me blew herself up all in the hopes of taking a few enemies with her. I reached out, a soft no escaping my lips before her final warcry, a deafening explosion, and a heavy silence.

War of the Human Tanks is a comedy game of give and take, managing your expendable human pawns in an effort to make sure the enemy loses more expendable human pawns. It's brilliant. I expected this game to start preaching at me about war and death and the value of life and it never did, because the game recognized that those things are probably common sense, and instead we could have light-hearted, yet dark humor develop interesting characters. I got the game to slake my thirst for grid based tactical combat, and also received a surprisingly deep narrative along with it.

The most notable feature of the combat is that it takes place in real time, with your light, kamikaze units often being the quickest, and your heavy, blow them up from a distance units being a bit more sluggish. The game uses fog of war to keep you on your feet and a wrong step into enemy territory is certain death. Not for you, but sometimes you feel pretty bad when your terrible decision making gets your innocently little scout shot to pieces.

Most units die with only one hit, but units that are larger-and thus also easier targets- must be hit in each of their segments before they die.

If I had to complain about anything, it's that once you get certain units you're basically an untouchable god of death. When you can literally bombard an entire half of the map with just one unit, you're probably not going to lose any fights. But then getting to that point is rewarding the first time you actually get to do it, but that said, the challenge maps usually laugh at simplistic strategies like that and send you straight to hell. Well, not you, so much as your pawn tanks, but still.

Pros- Hillarious, surprisingly interesting narrative, combat is simple enough to pick up quickly and deep enough to stay interesting for the long haul.

Cons- Some of the sound effects (mostly death cries) get annoying pretty quickly, not too hard to get over-powered, and I wish there was a competitive multiplayer mode, even if it was just local.

5/5

As a final note, this game has a demo, so there's no reason not to at least give it a try.

Battleships and chess with lolis.

Fantastic fun, interesting story with many twists and several endings, engaging gameplay that demands strategic thinking and an incredible soundtrack throughout.

The game's story is told through visual novel format, which sets the state of affairs and the stage for the battle to follow. Battles are fought in real-time, but with a sort of turn-based system that runs on ticks, for example after giving a unit orders to move you must then wait for it to radio in asking for new orders before it can be moved again. Battlefields are presented as a grid of octagons, and before the round commences you must first place your units as in Battleships. Each unit has it's own special properties and characteristics similar to chess, for example some may move 2 spaces at a time whereas others may only move 1, or one unit might only be able to attack horizontally whereas others must attack at least 2 spaces ahead of itself. The aim of each battle is to eliminate the opponent's 'Command Tank' before they destroy yours which, regardless of how many units they have remaining, wins you the battle. The battlefield is covered by a shroud as seen in most real-time strategies with sight range varying between your different units, so early game tactics may usually consist of Battleships-esque artillery strikes into the dark hoping you'll hit something, as your units gradually advance closer to the enemy, thinning out their ranks until their command tank is within firing range.

Very nice little strategy game, with several challenging achievements to really push your tactical prowess. (You don't know pain until you've watched your entire platoon get demolished by a cat)

I also throughly recommend purchasing the unbelievably extensive soundtrack, 91 tracks with a runtime of exactly 3:32:23. Three and a half hours of various funk, electronica, pop, rock and other genre-bending music that's really worth a listen if you're a true connoisseur of music.

Great game, I personally managed to lose 73 hours to it and I've already pre-purchased the upcoming sequel, ALTeR.

Definitely recommended if you like strategy games and/or visual novels and/or lolis.

War of the Human Tanks is a charming grid-based tactical game. It features a set of colorful character archetypes (the strict Satou, the easygoing Choko, a shut-in genius, and a bunch of awesome 'Human Tanks'. After playing for over 30 hours, here's what I think..

Pros:

- upbeat soundtrack
- large unit strategic variation
- challenging bonus maps
- multiple routes
- easy to learn
- great character design

Cons (sort of):

- the campaign was too easy (common in a lot of games that emphasize difficulty in bonus content)
- the tutorial was a bit lacking
- there's a fair bit of farming involved (as with most Japanese games)
- there is no way to significantly speed up large actions (you can cut out animation but it still takes a while to do hit confirmation for a large target area radius attack)

**The game has a lot of dialogue in it. If you are solely interested in the tactical combat, there are several skip features implemented to aid in this.

Overall, the game was really enjoyable. It would have done just fine with a little less farming but that's not much of an issue. The campaign does not take long to complete in case you are interested in the story behind it all. I am definitely interested in playing the other titles in this series once they get on Steam!

Oh and for those of you who like achievements..
