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.

What's New in Version 2.0.1
2.0: Pocket Tanks goes ONLINE!
2.0.1: Improvements to Online communication with server, WiFi Lobby problems, and other bug fixes. Integrated crash logging and submission for improved technical support.
This update adds two brand new game modes, allowing you to play against your friends over WiFi, or anywhere in the world!
First, is the Local WiFi option. This allows you to play a classic game of Pocket Tanks with someone on another iOS device on the same local wireless network. It is real time, and you see the actions your opponent takes as he takes them.
Second is the Online Asynchronous (Turn-based) play. Play against a friend at your own pace, with all your weapons available. If you need a quick fix, you can get a game started against a random opponent, with random weapons too!
This update also adds the ability to replay your Online games, in fast or slow motion, and to take and share screenshots easily via Facebook or Twitter.
iOS compatibility changes: Pocket Tanks v2.0 is compatible with the latest generation iOS devices, and iOS 7.0+. Consequently, this update no longer supports iOS versions before 5.0.
Online functions are currently available free for all Deluxe owners. No guarantee or warranty of service permanence or reliability is made.
Great game, needs improvement though
This is a great game, play all the time, but there are some things that need to be added...for instance there are many cases where you will be playing a game against someone and then they only take 5 turns and stop playing. There should be something to send a notification to the other player to take his/her turn. The other thing I think this game is missing is the ability to send messages to your opponent. I know that this is available in the PC version as I have used it a lot (it's there for LAN games anyways, idk about Internet games as well). A chat option should be implemented into the game. It could be used by double tapping the playing field with one finger in order to bring it up so as not to add more buttons to the well known interface already in place. Other than those two things I love the game, I just hope somebody reads this review that can actually do something about it :/
First off, ANYONE WHO DOESN'T HAVE THIS GAME SHOULD BUY IT.
I almost have to apologize for giving two stars, and I WOUld have to apologize if I gave it one. It's definitely my most played app. I love pocket tanks. BUt.. It REeally needs something.
👉 A better server would be nice; I've been having trouble.
👉 Anything new would be nice; 1)time set matches. 2)chat option. 3)record keeping. 4)a weapons pack.. we will buy weapons packs. 5)Make some new terrain types or colors or a soundtrack or SOmThiNG.. To name a few possibilities.
👉 Replay of my previous turn--when it is my turn. (If you can actually do this, disregard)
👉 Some of the weapons when fired (Black Forest) make their branches or whatever and then they change when it proceeds to the next player. It is rare, but a game changer, indeed.
👉😁👍😁 I really do love pocket tanks but MAYBE someone reads these... maybe...
Great game, BUT...
One of my favorite games, especially with the online option, but there is one flaw I wish could be addressed. There should be an option to auto-forfeit if you are inactive in a match for more than 24 hours. That, or some sort of push notification that players could send to "ping" slackers. I play online, almost exclusively and because of the lack of an auto-forfeit, push notification to play a match, or any sort of consequence for not being active, I have over 20 open matches!! Please, please, please fix this pocket tanks.
