For those interested in classic 64 games I did a playthrough recently of Battletanx and just wanted to share it with others here. :V I added annotation commentary as well.

Wow, I remember playing the original Battletanx oh-so-very long ago. That was a pretty good game...

Thinking about it this game had one weird storyline. All womens are dead? lulz. But, the multiplayer was something else entirely. Definite fun!

Yeah, it is a bit odd but understandable once you progress in the story. Multiplayer is fun. :D

Yep, me and my brother used to co-op campaign mode a lot. :V

Lol my dad used to put restrictions on the game because if you picked certain things you could almost immediately win a match.

No Iron Maidens and no Nukes. XD

M-80s albeit seemingly pointless. Are actually a good strategy.

Nukes are definitely cheap but they aren't impossible to avoid. I've always found Bouncing Betties to be pretty cheap when placed on top of each other.

Teleport for the win! :V Best way to dodge a nuke for sure unless you are the Goliath, that thing is a wall.

Just make sure you are at the edge of the course or near the nuke so you will not teleport into the destruction. :P

What was your favorite team to play with and favorite course to play on?

I do not remember much about the teams but I can admit I did not like the map with the train (or train tracks if there was no train...I forget) and I had lots of memories on the map with the subway system and the level with the castle. I forget which cities these levels were located in but it is my friend's game, not mine.

Lol. xD I do not remember most of the teams by memory but my favorite team would be Griffin's Army or the Cold Warriors. As for course, I cannot remember all the multiplayer courses. :P Wow, my memory is bad on one of my favorite games. >.< Yeah, there are a couple of courses with trains on it. Just do not want to be on the tracks when they pass by.

And here I thought you'd laugh at me for not remembering much. Either way they had a lot of great levels and most of the teams were pretty good except I don't think the team with two of the small vehicles was all that good and the one that came with two of the massive tanks was pretty good. <----They were the team that could start with a nuke, right?

I have the playstation version. The cold warriors don't have goliaths XD

I got a lil' nostalgic and played this game again a few days ago. Me and my brother loved stealing each other's queenlords. XD
