Episode 12: Modern Tanks for the Memory

Whoever controls all the Memory Chip Factories wins!

Page Last Updated: May 10, 2006


Welcome to a world where he who controls the memory controls the universe! The goal of this game is to take control of all the memory factories with your tanks.

Playing the Game

First you must decide how many humans are going to participate. There will always be four players, with the computer controlling any extra slots. Each of the four players has a different color.

The player starts the game with $5000. Each day, the player receives a base fund of $500 and an additional $250 per factory that is under his/her control. When the player has enough money, and his or her base is unoccupied, the player will be given the option of creating a new tank. Players are limited to nine tanks. Tanks cost the player $5000.

The game loops through all the players tanks (if a player has 4 tanks, all 4 get a move). Each tank has a set number of movement points. Different commands cost different amounts of points, as does moving over different terrain types. If you end a tanks turn with extra points, half those points are added to the next turns points. Using more than the allotted points costs double the overflow amount.

The command buttons are on the right side of the screen and are as follows:
