One of the best multiplayer freeware titles ever made, Tank Wars is a fun artillery game for one to ten players. The goal will be familiar to anyone who has played Scorched Earth or Gorilla: opponents attempt to destroy each other's tanks by firing various weapons at them. Pick a weapon, then set the trajectory. Terrain, gravity, and the opposing tanks' weapons and relative positions to you are some of the factors you need to consider.

In addition to the fun and familiar gameplay, Tank Wars adds a lot of bells and whistles to make the replayability much higher. There are also seven levels of AI for you to compete against. With up to ten tanks in the playing field, the game is typically fast, hectic, and addictive. The graphics are standard VGA with no frills, but it's more than enough for the purpose of just blowing things up ;)

Note: the game was actually released as shareware, but registering the game (which cost $3) brought no benefits aside from the author's promise that he would notify registered owners of new version releases.
