Note from the author:

I have been writing artillery games since 1993. I created Pocket Tanks in 2001, and thanks to the many loyal fans, it is still in active development to this very day. Please join me in my quest to make Pocket Tanks a classic artillery game that stands the test of time. Thanks to all who have supported BlitWise over the years.

Awesome game

Jason Thomas Gross

I really like this game, and I've been playing for a long time. The one issue I'm having with it is that, suddenly, my attacks aren't hitting home anymore. I've never had a problem dialing in to hit the target, but recently I can barely get a direct hit, my shots fly all over. Meanwhile the computer hits me dead on every single shot. I have wind turned off, level 5. Other than that I love it, but it's discouraging to get hit so bad by the computer, when I know I'm accurately lining up my own shots and they end up being way off

Amazing, but...


Incredible game overall, awesome gameplay. So many hours were spent, but the main issue is that it is still a struggle to play online with a strangers, no matter if I play with wifi or 4g data lags are pretty common so that you simply cannot finish your move, the same happens with your opponent, you just wait for him to finish move and nothing happens. Would be happy if that can be fixed.
Anyway, thank you BitWise for amazing game!

I love this game

I have played this game since I was like... 7 and I have bought all the packs and everything because it's an amazing game. The only thing though is that they aren't updating it anymore and it's really sad because I would love new packs and everything. So if the developers are out there and you see this, please make more stuff for this amazing game. I would love that and I'm sure other people would too.
