I’m not much of a gamer, so it’s not really my field to write about this but I handled tunneler pretty well, back in the day. I found out that Tunnelers has been released yesterday as a 3D MMO action shooter, as they say. It’s basically a tank tunneling through ground and shooting things. In 3D. Against, not one, but many other tunnelers. Watching the promo video, I must say, it looks pretty cool.
My understanding is that the game itself requires a downloadable client. I didn’t find the specifications for system requirements on their site, though. Looking further, I learned that the game requires Windows, of course. My point being is that as pretty as the 3d visual effects and loud explosions are, I don’t think that this game will bring me so much fun as playing the original Tunneler had, back in 1991.
Perhaps future really is HTML5, even for some games. Mozilla proved that with their Browserquest few days ago. I had great experience playing that tiny little game and it didn’t require me to download or setup anything. Playing original Tunneler build upon that very technology, I would have a blast. I can only imagine. Hopefully, more browser games will be released soon.
