I completely fell in love with this little steampunk tank fighting game. In Steamlands you're the operator of a steamengine and you fight other steamengines for fame and fortune. The graphics are really cute 2D pixel graphics with a lot of detail.

Your tank is made up of different "lego" blocks that you can move around to change it's looks and it's ability to withstand damage and deal damage to other steamengines. The whole thing is centered around the actually engine. You need to make sure to put your cannons close enough to your engine so that the steampower can reach the cannons and get them shooting. You also need to plan where and how you arrange your blocks of armor so that you protect your control room and your engine. If you take damage you can send out your steamengine operator with his little spanner to repair your tank. As you progress through the game you get more and more blocks to construct your steamengine and you face bigger and bigger opponents.

The game is developed in Flash by Nitrome. Try it out at their site:
