"Even earlier ascii versions from as early as 1976 are reported.
Now that's real history - all other games (pong and chess excepted)
are modern upstarts.
"One of the older and more mature open source Artillery clones,
with version 0.5 first available in January of 2003, Atomic Tanks
doesn't seem to have the online presence of it's contemporaries.
This is probably because it doesn't look that nice, with garish
colours, coarse widgets, and almost badly drawn sprites.
"What it lacks in the graphics department, it makes up for in
features. The sheer range of weapons is overwhelming. You earn
money, which you can use upgrade features and improve your tanks,
making the game a much more appealing single player experience.
Also the land behaves differently, falling to fill and holes
created by explosions."
