August 14th, 2009

We are pleased to announce cyragon games latest project, Tank Combat HD! Tank Combat HD is being developed exclusively for the XBOX 360. We will be announcing a release date in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!

Tank Combat HD is a classic fast paced combat game pitting tank against tank. Be prepared to bring your wits and lighting fast reflexes as you battle up to four other tanks in four game modes.

Single Player will allow you to have up to 3 AI opponents in any game mode. Come ready for the challenge as they won’t take it easy on you.


  • Local: play with up to 4 controllers for intense tank action!
  • XBOX Live: ready to take your Tank Combat skills to the world? Join friends and gamers on XBOX Live for the ultimate Tank Combat experience! When playing on Live, you can select which team you want to be on for co-op game play (requires more than 2 players).

Available game modes

  • Melee: first tank/team to reach 25 points.
  • King of the Hill: only the tank/team controlling the “hill” receives any points. Points are awarded based on the amount of time spent on the “hill”.
  • Tag: one tank is “It” and all other tanks are on the opposing team trying to tag “It”. When a player tags “It”, they become “It”.
  • Stealth Mode: tanks are only visible when their missile is visible.

That’s right, Strategic Command!

Two armies. One battlefield. One victor. Will it be you?

Use strategy and deception to maneuver your armed forces into your opponent’s territory and conquer their headquarters. The winner will be crowned with glory and live to see their name thunder down the hallowed corridors of time. The loser will be buried in infamy.

The fate of the war is in your hands. What will you do, commander?

This will be our entry in the Silverlight Server Quest Game Contest.
