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.

My favourite IPhone game

I’ve been playing Pocket Tanks for years now, and I love it.
The vast variety of weapons and novel mechanics makes replay-ability a strong positive for the game, and to see that Pocket Tanks is still being supported after all these years is a great perk.
Honestly, all I want to see are even more wacky weapons, and maybe some new maps - even just some new colours for the traditional map - I think the darkness of the background can be a nuisance at times, but I’ll live with it.

Bloody great game. I don't know why people are complaining about difficult AI when it's not difficult at all, just challenging. If it's too 'hard' go on an easier difficulty >< Also you can change the landscape easily in options. Just not the background or type of land. I agree with the whole back button argument. But it hardly takes time to restart the app, still yes a back button would help. Online would also be a very nice add on to the game. Overall the only fault I can find is the back button. Great app and good work. I look forward to further updates, perhaps more weps or online =]
