This Week On Live Arcade: Death Tank

Old school gameplay gets an upgrade this week on Xbox Live Arcade, as Snowblind Studios releases Death Tank, a shiny new take on the classic tank-on-tank angle shooter.

What's an angle shooter, you ask? It's any game that involves calculating the angle of projectiles based on terrain velocity in order to efficiently dispatch your foes. Newer examples include Gunbound or Worms, while I always like to go back in time to the days of shareware with the classic Scorched Earth. Death Tank features classic tanks and angles gameplay for up to four people on the same Xbox 360, with eight players supported via Xbox Live.

Death Tank will be available for download early Wednesday morning, as per usual. In the meantime, check out the video below to get an idea of what to expect for your 1200 points.
