Total Tank Simulator is an awesome physics based military sandbox warfare game that allows players to plan, watch and take part in epic battles between hundreds of units which you can take individual control of at any time.
We first featured Total Tank Simulator last year when it was in early Alpha, and was a fun, but fairly simple TABS-esque sandbox warfare game. Since then Total Tank Simulator has come along leaps and bounds with a wide array of cool features that makes each battle an epic, carnage-filled experience.
There are plans for adding multiplayer, but at the moment Total Tank Simulator features campaign missions that see you attempting to win battles within a set budget and a sandbox mode that allows you to act out massive free-form battles between two nations. Both modes allow you to place a vast array of units, all of which will automatically attack the opposition when the battle starts and can be jumped into and piloted at any time.
The campaign mode is fun and requires you to use real strategy as you try to figure out which units and formations are effective against different enemy battalions. It’s arguably the sandbox mode that offers the most enjoyment though. In it you choose two factions (USA, China, Russia, etc.) to do battle with and are given an unlimited budget and access to all of their unique military vehicles and buildings. You can place as many units as you want (as long as your GPU can handle it) then watch on as the chaos unfolds.
Most of the units in the game are based on real-life counterparts, with various types of tanks, planes, artillery, infantry, mines and buildings at your disposal. There are also some OTT special units too, that can really shake up things on the battlefield, such as the Russian’s Secret Die Glocke hover tank or their absolutely gigantic Ultra Tank. The Americans even have access to a B-29 Bomber that can drop an atom bomb and blow up every unit on the battlefield, leaving a huge crater in its wake (the entire landscape of Total Tank Simulator’s battlefields is deformable).
It’s a very cool game that allows you to reenact those childhood toy soldier battles on a massive scale. The sheer amount of carnage on-screen is incredible and the way you can jump into each unit really helps to immerse you in the experience. A totally awesome tank simulator that we highly recommend checking out!
Note: LMB – To view a unit close up (but not control it), RMB to take over control of a unit. We recommend playing the Tutorial first.
