Tunnelers is a top down, Action tank Shooter MMO Game.
In the game Tunnelers players battle it out underground using specially designed tanks that, sometimes have to dig tunnels through the environment. All the fights are fought against real players, meaning this game is heavily inclined towards PvP (player vs player) combat.
Tunnelers have three game modes: - Free For All (FFA) mode, in other words everyone against everyone. Until the time limit or frag limit is hit, fight and achieve points by destroying everyone else using countless styles and tricks. The player with the most frags wins. - Team Showdown, this is a team mode similar to FFA. Those who fight with a team have a better chance to win. Every team has a base to replenish energy and shields. The team with the most frags wins. - Capture The Flag, this team mode is different. Every team has a team colored flag usually spawned in the base or nearby. Your goal is to steal the enemy`s flag (by touching it) and score by bringing it back to the place where your flag spawns. If your flag is not in the spawn place, you have to retrieve it. By destroying an enemy carrying your flag, the flag is dropped and by touching it it is returned back to its spawn place. The team with the most scored flags wins.
Before the battle each player has to choose one tank from three different classes: - Light Class are faster tanks with lower energy and shields, but with solid weaponry, use them as scouts or thieves. - Medium Class Tanks with balanced firepower and speed and with average energy and shields, use them as supportive units. - And the Heavy Class, very durable, slow vehicles with strong firepower, use them as defenders.
Upgrades are used as a temporary advantage enhancing some of your tank abilities. They are spawned at specific spawn points on the map. There are two types of upgrades: passive and active upgrades.
