Though this web site still doesn’t have a mobile version, the videos are now viewable on iPhones and iPads.  Previously, the video player on this site used Flash, which was incompatible with iOS.  The player is now replaced with HTML5 video tag.

Long overdue, I know!

Welcome to!  This is a site dedicated to Wii Tanks (what is it?), mostly in the form of strategy guides and video captures (for those who haven’t reached the higher missions in the game but want to see them).  To see more what this site is all about and why I made it, see About This Site.

Guide to this site

For those interested in strategies, read the Overall Startegy Guide first, then click on a mission number below for a strategy guide specific to the mission (with video demo of how I beat it) – I haven’t written all of them yet, so some of them are grayed out:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100

You can also see List of Missions for screenshots of each mission’s block layout (and why not all 100 missions are listed above).  In parallel, you may also want to check out List of Enemy Tanks, which lists all enemy tank types in this game, brief descriptions of each tank, the missions they first appear in, and of course links to tank-specific strategy guides.

Check out the miscellaneous section for interesting trivia of the game.

You can also subscribe to this site via email or RSS, or request an article, but don’t click this link

I hope you enjoy this site!


The music in Tanks! is deceptively simple.  You may have noticed that in the higher levels, when powerful tanks such as the white tanks are destroyed, the background music immediately becomes less complex, less rich.  This is because certain types of tanks come accompanied by their own musical instruments!

This is first heard in Mission 8, where yellow tanks are introduced along with a new bass drum beat.  The bass of the music is much deeper when yellow tanks are present.  Once all yelow tanks are destroyed in a mission, the bass drum component of the music ceases.

The most obvious tank-specific instrument is that that comes with the white tanks.  Below is a complete list (special thanks to U.E. for providing this info):

  • The AI (artificial intelligence) of enemy tanks are randomized – even though a level may always start out with the same tanks (you and enemy) in the same positions facing the same directions, their initial movements are not predictable.
  • When controlling with the nunchuck, your tank can move at various speeds by moving the control stick part way.  Not very useful, but it’s there 🙂
  • “Leading” a tank means aiming ahead of a moving tank when firing.

Officially “Tanks!” with an exclamation mark, it is 1 of the 9 mini-games in the Nintendo Wii game “Wii Play“.  Below is a Wikipedia excerpt, which I had a part in writing:):

In this game, the player controls a small toy tank to destroy enemy tanks in a two-and-a-half-dimensional wooden toy block environment. Tanks can fire shells and/or lay mines. All tanks, including the player’s, will be destroyed when hit by a single shell or mine.
