Tank Wars (also known as BOMB due to the name of the zip file and it's executable file) is, as you might expect, a tank battle game. It is quite similar to the better-known game Scorched Earth which was released around the same time in the early 90's. The goal of the game is to destroy the other tank(s) controlled by human players or computer opponents (of varying intelligence levels) by selecting the angle and velocity of your shots. The game generates terrain of different formations for each level and includes wind as well (both typical of games in this genre, even the famous QBasic Gorillas game) as well as a ton of different configurable options. There are also different weapons that you can purchase between rounds. Generally a fun game of this genre. I have heard that the computer opponents' AI is tuned a bit better than Scorched Earth, so if you're looking to play against your PC (up to 10 simultaneously) this may be your best choice.
