Customer Reviews

A great start

I enjoy games like this - a Scorched Earth style game. I really like the animation, as i think it is crisp and fun. The music could use a little more diversity, as it makes me want to silence it altogether. There is a good variety of weapons, though some act weird. For example, dirt effectively penetrates a shield, but napalm does not. I like that you can battle endlessly. My big problems with it for now are that most of the weapons do so much damage that you can easily blow the enemy tank to smithereens in one hit, as it can readily do to you. The premium tanks are extremely brutal when controlled by the AI - often 1-hit, 1-kill. Given the targeting system is very generous in giving you a good chunk of a parabolic arc, aiming is pretty easy unless the enemy is in a weird spot. Another issue is that while the overall map seems somewhat random, any given battle location is fixed - the same things in the same locations every time. Plus, the tanks are in the same relative positions on the map most of the time. Dirt seems to do really odd things to your tank. Sometimes, a pebble rips you a new one, while other times a mountain falls on you and nothing much happens. The enemy tank seems far more likely to gracefully withstand mountains, though. I am weirded out that tanks take no damage from falling, and can scale cliffs with ease. Maybe as a special tank ability, those would be better. I am looking forward to seeing what upgrades and changes bring, though.

Lame excuse for money grubbing app

This could be a fun game, but it's NOT!!!! Lazy developer spends more time making money siphoning gimmicks than he does making good game play and fixing horrid gimmicks, wish I could rate this app negative.

I got ripped off liking it in Facebookw to get 5000 in game cash to buy weapons, to this day I have yet to get that money.

Would be more fun if more tanks were on screen like the game this originally rips off called scorched earth.

Shields are pointless and useless.

Should get more money for winning, most of the time you spend more in munitions than you gain by winning which of course is a gimmick for ripping people off. If you want 50 or more dollars for a game then make a real game you sorry pathetic excuse for a developer. This is a .99 cent app to kill time not a 3d game of awesome story killer graphics and the like. Developers like this is what is killing the gaming industry.

Special in app purchased tanks are used by AI even if you the player did not buy them giving the computer a cash edge and a tank edge most of the time.

Highly addictive

Mixed feelings for as addictive as it can be there tends to be a steep sway in favor of the enemy tanks example:
For some glitch or another, enemy tank goes air bound bouncing off the walls, and manages to fire the grenade with pin point accuracy.
I generally wouldn't care if it wasn't for the fact that if you don't destroy the enemy tank in one shot, you have already lost. Especially when they drop little rollers near your position and it blows up your tank every time, though to return the favor with a direct hit only does minimal damage.
Great game if you had a chance to actually exchange missiles instead of one shot matches.
