pimp my tank

A video game created for GitHub Game Off 2016 (Theme is Hacking, Modding, or Augmenting).

The aim of the game is to control your tank and hit other players' (human or computer controlled) tanks. The user the modify his/her tank (by buying new weapons, changing tank's colour) as well as alter the environment (by changing the wind speed which makes shooting missiles quite tricky).
