Bug fixes.

This update brings our Online functions from a third party Backend as a Service supported framework to a BlitWise maintained AWS hosted server infrastructure. This should provide greater flexibility in the future, and players should not see any disruption in game play or functionality. However, some errors may occur with a change of this magnitude.

All-Time Favorite Game!!!

I literally play this game all day. I love turn-based games that have selections. I've played the PC version with all the weapons. Mobile is the best because I can play anywhere. I battle at least ten people a day and practice my winning strategy time after time. My cons: AI never wins, but never misses lol. Its true, second player is always at a disadvantage with their position. The spinner glitch is lame to lose by - please fix. Request: we should be able to create stages/weapon selections. We definitely need chat during play feature. The game play is casual and would be fun to coach friends some tips during play. Please can we have a record of our matches? How about teams i.e. more tanks like 4 player game. Thank you Blitwise!!!!!!!!!
Update: I thought there was a real update...sigh.

I'm writing this review for the deluxe version

I have purchased the deluxe version and it I'd definitely worth it this game deserves much more attention. So simple but yet so complex. This game also has allot of potential, like possibly in the deluxe version you could have a way to design new landscapes to battle on that could be allot larger and longer and deeper and maybe modes where you have unlimited jump packs and diggers maybe idk. Just an idea but bigger and deeper would definitely be amazing. And also live action team battles both for online and single player. Just some ideas that hopefully get attention. Either way I love this game and it is the best 👍🏻👍🏻

Brings back memories of my younger years

I was in middle school when this game came out. In those days, pocket tanks was only for PC and came in either free or paid versions. I never thought the cost of the paid version was justified, so I went with the free option. When I saw this app on the App Store it was almost too good to believe. They captured the essence of what this game was about. WELL DONE!
