Battle City is a very fun and addicting online game. You start off by either building a city or applying for a job in a city built by someone else. Your goal is to defend your city while attacking and destroying enemy cities. All of this is done in real-time from the comfort of your tank! For more information, visit the Official Battle City Website.

The best thing about Battle City is that it has been released under the GPLv3 open source license. This license gives ownership of the game to the community and ensures Battle City will stay free and open source forever!

Game Design

Battle City was put together in an ad hoc manner, sort of like painting a ceiling with colored spit balls. But hey, we’re learning! It turns out some actual game design documentation might be useful, and maybe a well defined iterative agile process too! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_development)
