3D Tanx is a shoot 'em up video game written by Don Priestley and published by DK'Tronics in 1982 for the ZX Spectrum,[1] C64[2] and BBC Micro.


The aim of the game is to shoot tanks moving across a bridge, shown in the distance into the screen. The player aims a gun turret by adjusting its rotation and elevation, this being the '3D' aspect of the game. Skill and timing is required to strike the tanks.[3]

Critical reaction[edit]

CRASH magazine highlighted the good (for the time) graphics and sound.[4]
