Death Tank Zwei start screen
Death Tank is a 2D multiplayer versus shooter developed by Lobotomy Software, set on a hilly terrain. Although similar to Scorched Earth, Worms, or Gunbound, the gameplay is real time instead of turn-based. It supports two to seven players, represented by differently-colored tanks, with a range of weapons to battle it out. The terrain on which this occurs, an ever-decreasing yellow landscape, is completely obliterated by the players during gameplay or otherwise gradually whittles down to a flat plain.
The original Death Tank was a bonus game in the Sega Saturn version of PowerSlave (1996). A sequel/update, Death Tank Zwei, was hidden in the Saturn version of Duke Nukem 3D (1997). Death Tank and Death Tank Zwei were developed by Ezra Dreisbach, a member of Lobotomy Software.
Xbox Live Arcade version
A version of Death Tank Zwei is included as an extra in this release, which can be unlocked by shooting down a supply plane in the main game. There are a number of minor differences between this new version and the original; it lacks the title screen (and Death Tank theme), options and player selection screens. The game has an upper limit of four players (instead of the original seven), and there are a number of changes to the names of the weapons.
