Wii Play Tanks - Remixed

IMG_1945First off, let me preface this by saying these were not my ideas, they were my friend's original ideas.

These are alternative methods of playing Tanks, one of the games included in Wii Play. The game by itself is very fun to play, both in single player and multi-player modes. However, by changing the way you play, the game can be even more entertaining.

The first method, and more difficult, is to simply play two player mode and have the players trade nunchucks. In this way, each player drives one tank and shoots the other. This is extremely confusing as you have to track two different positions on the screen. I haven't played this way very much, but is is still very fun.

The other method, and more popular one from what I can tell, is to play with four players on teams of two. Each team has a driver and a shooter. This is fun for several reasons. First, more people are involved. Also, the driver and shooter need to communicate and each focus more on their own task.

One of the things I noticed while playing with four players is that the tank stops moving for a short period of time when a shot is fired.

Tanks is one of the best, if not the best, game on Wii Play. Altering the way you play the game can add an entirely new level of play making the game even more enjoyable.
