Stug is an online tank-based competitive game that gives players control over a military-grade machine to battle their friends and foes. Gamers navigate various boards, seeking advantageous positions and locations to shoot at enemy vehicles while avoiding incoming fire.
More specifically, Stug allows players to modify and upgrade their tanks in the garage for additional attack power, speed and armor. Players can also use the research feature to enhance their tanks and unlock machines to drive on the battleground. And if players get tired of playing solo, Stug makes inviting friends, family members and co-workers easy to manage with their friends feature.
Stug's intuitive design helps players move seamlessly across the map using the WSAD keys on their keyboard, navigating tight turns and intricate mazes to attack their foes. The W key acts as the pedal that pushes the take forward, while the A and D keys allow the player to move left and right, respectively. And if users get caught in a tight corner or need to escape the chaotic fire from enemies, not a problem. The S key helps put the tank in reverse to find cover behind walls and steer clear of unwanted damage.
Now, let's move on to the topic players care about the most: firing the cannons. To shoot upon an enemy take, the user takes their mouse, points their cursor in the location of their nemesis and left-clicks their mouse to fire. Once a shell is fired, a small indicator appears over the player's cursor with a refill animation, indicating that another piece of ammunition is loading. Once the refill animation completes, the user can aim and fire another damaging round onto another tank's exterior.
However, there are instances where basic maneuvers aren't enough to escape the enemy. To give players an added layer of mechanical fun, the shift key acts as a speed boost, temporarily increasing the momentum of a player's tank and giving them extra agility to dodge incoming fire. Players can also ricochet their rounds off nearby walls to attack enemies in tight-knit spaces. And if their tank receives damage in a battle with another tank, pressing R will quickly repair their tank and recharge their armor for additional skirmishes. Word of caution: when pressing R to heal one's tank, the player's vehicle becomes immobile, creating a vulnerable position for enemy tanks to take advantage of.
