Lots of great stuff in the works for future release; new enemies, power-ups, and gameplay mechanics, social features, and more.
Drive your tank around a maze, dodge enemy gliders, and destroy enemy bases. Intuitive multi-touch control scheme, simple and indisputably retro, but incredibly fun.

Awesome Retro Fun!
Fun game; elegant grapnics like old-school vector arcade games. Smooth movement, multiple baddies and bases; strategy comes to fore on later levels (fend off baddies while attacking bases). Loved it, esp. after I got a clue and started playing in LANDSCAPE orientation; then the one half of the screen is fire, and the other half is move. Wish there was just a little instruction, but a little trial & error solved any questions (unless I'm missing something ;) HIGHLY recommended!
Now playable on iOS4 + 2nd gen iPod Touch! :)
Bumping up the rating now that I can play the game...
So far so good: the game controls well and is about what I was expecting.
1) You can continue to shoot & earn points after you die, so you can just sit and accumulate points if you really want to.
2) It's a little strange how fast your tank moves in proportion to your bullets - seems that it would 'feel' better if your tank were a little slower.
Garbagemaster lied in his review, this is not bolo! You kill pillboxes to progress to the next level, no endless games of capturing bases, etc... I'd say it's more like Spectre than Bolo. Fun vector graphics, old school feel, but controls are a bit strange. Not bad, not blown away (hahahha, how punny).
