Mr Scribbles ,

Exelent but....

It is a very good game!! it is the most played on my ipod but one problem.... I would like to reccomend that in the terrain if there could be not only mountains in between each player but diches and cavens/crevices so you could earn mountains of points each shot and so could the other player!! It would be so chaotic and everything would be blown up in a few secconds!! I am saying this because the computer versen hes the dips and crevices between each player. Imagion if you could vs people on wifi!!

Big fan

Im a big fan of pocket tanks, should be the no.1 app. I have the computer edition with all 18 expansion packs and 230 weapons. When i found that pocket tanks was on the ipod i was very excited and bought it instantly.
I knew that i was getting 105 weapons and it says v1.0 (THIS is why i only gave it 4 stars) which means there should be a v1.1 and v1.2 etc.
If they took it in and really cared about their customers they would update it with more weapons even if i had to pay just a little bit more. But they did not even bother to say in there description if there would be a v1.1 so that puts me down a little :(
But back to the good stuff the app is great please buy it and enjoy it. Until an update a little price drop would be nice for about $4 or $5. Overall good game 5/5 if more weapons. 4/5 for now.

Über awesome

An unusually addictive game. Mr Welch, needs more tank moves than 4, weapons shouldn't disappear off screen edge if enemy is there , mud pie is rediculous, 12 or more weapon options would make the game a little longer,the random weapon option should be more "points" balanced, sometimes I just get multiple glue guns, otherwise , keep it up! Nice work
