Most of you are probably way too young to remember Apogee Software´s old sci-fi FPS game “Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold” (the game was released back in December, 1993), but in my case, I grew up playing that game. In the matter of fact, it was the second FPS game that I had ever played at the time (Wolfenstein 3D was my first FPS game). Well, I have never really forgotten about Blake Stone. As I truly enjoyed that game quite a lot. However, it´s been a long time since I played a game of that kind (“Hovertank 3D” is another game that comes to mind, now that I think about the matter).

Well, funny enough. Just the other day I (Robin Ek, TGG) was contacted by HardDisk Productions, and they presented to me Abrams Tank (you can buy the game via Steam for 3,99 Euros):

“You’re the guy they contact when things go really f’ed up. You’re the guy that gets things done. And you have been summoned here for a reason. There’s people to rescue, mutants to kill. Get in, rescue/kill, get out. Without any questions. That’s your priority. Politics, flags, loyalties, or even the thrill of the ride, you aren’t concerned with none of that. Your single concern is the meeting the objective, with deadly precision or else your failure will be seen from space. Abrams Tank is a true retro fps that has the sensibilities of the early fps like wolf3d and blake stone.

Featuring brand new beautifully hand painted 2d sprites, midi sfx, true retro level design philosophies and aesthetics. This isn’t those fps that claim to be retro but have levels divided around sections that have the player clear hoards of enemies and then have them move to the next fenced area like many AAA games nowadays. This is a true retro school fps right from the 2d pixel art era.”

In other words, if you enjoyed Softdisk’s old vehicular combat DOS game “Hovertank 3D” (created by Tom Hall and released by ID Software back in 1991). Then you will have a blast with “Abrams Tank” for sure! And you´ll get a lot of value for your money, since the “Abrams Tank” offers 20 missions and plenty of challenges for you to take on.
