BattleTanx is a classic arcade action shooter, a fast paced game of 3D Armored Tank Combat set in a post-apocalyptic United States. The game combines "kill or be killed" adrenaline-pumping battle action with the tactical elements of Capture the Flag. It can be played in multiple camera perspectives and can be experienced by one to four players.
Five types of fast and furious 3D action gameplay:
You are Griffin Spade, warrior and battle leader in a post-Apocalyptic future. Your destiny is to fight your way across the radioactive wastelands that were once known as America, in order to find the woman you love.
You can still remember how it all started. The precursor of the Apocalypse was a lethal virus that appeared from nowhere. Known as the X2 Virus, it was selective, choosing only females to act as its host. The second phase of the Apocalypse was anarchy, caused by panic among the men who dominated governments worldwide. Focusing their attention on saving the remaining women, governments rounded up all survivors, by force if necessary, and relocated them to secure, quarantined facilities in secret locations. This policy was implemented virtually worldwide. Discontentment and rioting soon followed, as groups of men banded together to form pseudo-militias. The barrier between civilization and anarchy toppled, and the world became a barbaric collection of small nation-states virtually overnight.
The third and final phase of the Apocalypse was global war. The remnants of the world's governments opted for what was in their short-term best interest. With this twisted logic, the country that could secure the most women would be in the best position for maintaining its population. Countries with large military forces immediately attacked neighbors in hopes of capturing and containing their surviving females. Although there are no known records about who fired the first nuclear shot, in the end it didn't matter.
The world as you knew it is gone, devoured in the purifying fire of nuclear cataclysm. The massive amount of fallout caused catastrophic famine and ecological damage across the entire planet. Over half of the sprawling cities that once consumed the land with their brilliance and innovation are now only rubble. However, the X2 Virus is no longer a threat - the few women who have survived its decimation are all immune, and infinitely precious to the few surviving men who still populate a desolate Earth.
The survivors of the devastation now claim ownership to vast regions. These militarized gangs are known as Tribes, and they show no mercy to strangers. In these societies, women are now treated as holy entities. Referred to as QueenLords, they are both tribal rulers and objects of jealous adoration. Tribes guard their QueenLords at any cost. Almost certainly Madison can be found somewhere under the "protection" of such a Tribe...
