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.
For a small little $10 game, it's a pretty good deal.
I really enjoyed everything about it. From the timer based combat, to the funny story.
I never expected the music to be this good either!
Warning: It has anime style jokes and art. Stay away if that's not your thing.
I found the gameplay to be quite fun, the story itself to be funny, and there was still a great deal to do after the campaign was over. All in all, a very enjoyable game and I hope the sequels are translated so I can play those as well.
