LONG ago back in '97 when Bonus.com was alive and well, some of you may remember a multiplayer game that was so addictive it kept their players coming back. Sadly, the website dropped off the face of the earth back in 2005 and discontinued their awesome game.
But early last month a few die-hard fans obtained the source code from who knows where and resurrected the game!
It can be found at www.tankpit.com
and its super easy to register.
For anyone who has never heard of the game, I urge you to give it a try. This game was THE first Battlefield title (non related, of course) and was one of the first online multiplayer game I ever played.
If you like World of Tanks, this game will be like playing it on NES
The point of the game is simple, you have 4 colors: Red, Orange, Purple, and Blue
You create a tank, choose a color and enter a map. You start as a recruit but work your way up the ladder by gaining experience. Once you reach Sergeant, you must deactive (kill) an opponent that is the same rank or higher than you. You must do this for every rank up until General.
You may see players who are decorated with medals. You can find out what they are and how to obtain them by reading some of the FAQ on the site.
Long live Battlefield!
ps: I go by fps on the maps.
My old name, if any of you played back in the day, was 'Standford Eagle USA' and 'THING2'
