Donnie comes up with a first person tank game today.
I wanted to see how fast I could do a first-person tank game for the GBA, and this is the result. I saved some time by reusing code from my last one, Collision Course, but by the end I had to rewrite and optimize a great deal to be able to display two tanks instead of one. This is once again a vector-based game, but this time in 3D wireframe. There's a lot of Bresenham line drawing and integer division going on, so I hope it runs at a solid 60 frames per second on hardware, which it hasn't been tested on.
My only real experience with the inspiration for this game, Battlezone, was on the Atari 2600, and I've never operated a tank, so I'm not the best person to try doing simulations. In any case, a modified version of Atari's arcade game Battlezone was used in U.S. Army training.
