Hey all! Need a little help here. There was this game I used to play all the time. It was shareware when I played it, and it was fairly old. I THINK it was a DOS game, although not sure. It was a game almost JUST like Scorched Earth (No, it wasn't Scorch 3D). It was with tanks on a 3D-ish isometric perspective, you could turn the playfield around I think. It had purchasable weapons like Scorched Earth. It also had comments when the tanks fired, and when they died. The comments were humorous (ex "Your shoelaces are untied!" and "I'll be back..." in an Arnold voice) and there was actual speech to go along with the text. I LOVED this game, it was so much fun, but I can't remember it's name for the life of me. Please help?

I also remember the game had a Tesla Coil as a purchasable item. (for shields or energy I think)

LOL no, it definately wasn't that good. And it wasn't an online game. It MIGHT have had a LAN multiplayer feature, but It wasn't mainly for online.

That was the point.

Mmm. Well I don't think it was an insperation, or predecessor for that game. The game im thinking of was shareware made by one guy, and it was like "Donations of 15$ or more to register" kinda shareware games.

I don't remember the graphics too well. It was close to Cannon Fodder's tech of graphics. I don't know technical names for them too well. (ex. VGA, SVGA, EGA) The games was definately insipired by Scorched Earth though. You had tanks on various parts of this 'playfield' (you could see the entire playfield on the screen from overhead, like Scorch 3D, but I dont think you had the camera freedom of Scorch 3D) and you had to set angle, direction, and power of your shots. You had shields, I remember that much....Im sorry I don't know more. Please help!
