Tanks! is the final minigame available in Wii Play.


The player controls a small toy tank around a wood arena, attempting to destroy all other tanks to progress. Instead of a time limit, as many other minigames feature, Tanks! uses a life system—run out of lives, and the game is over. Enemy tanks will fire back, and being struck by any projectile (including the player's own) will result in a loss of life.

Player shots and some enemy shots can bounce off of walls, and mine explosions can go through walls. Some cork-material walls can also be permanently destroyed with mines.

After completing 20 stages, the game will end. It can be replayed again to play up to 100 stages. Every five stages completed awards an extra life.

There are a variety of tanks to be found:

Color Image Description/Abilities
Light brown Needed.png Stationary and fires infrequently.
Dark brown Needed.png These tanks move at random, and fire more often, albeit randomly.
Light green Needed.png Fires fast missile-like shots, and tend to aim directly at the player.
Yellow Needed.png Faster than other tanks, and tend to attack with mines over shots.
Red Needed.png More challenging versions of dark brown tanks.
Dark green Needed.png Similar to light green tanks, but their shots bounce off walls.
Purple Needed.png Like red tanks, but tend to avoid getting close to the player.
White Needed.png Turn invisible. They can still be perceived with their track marks and shot origins.
Black Needed.png Combination of dark green, yellow, and purple tanks: These are fast, smart, and fire missiles.
