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.

Fun game

It’s a great game. For having simple graphics it’s a really entertaining game. Me and some buddies of mine love playing against each other and we’ll be going at it for an hour or two. The only thing I wish would be put into the game is the ability to create a custom game. For example, you could add that your tank could move 10 times instead of 4. Or you could make it so that there are 20 volleys instead of 10. Kinda like how you can add wind or change the size of the explosion.
Thanks for the great game!

Almost Scratches that Nostalgia Itch

For those of us who played the original Scorched Earth in 1991, Pocket Tanks Deluxe is a heart-felt and (mostly) faithful tribute to that classic, and there are some genuinely clever weapons and gadgets included.

There are, however, some design decisions or technical limitations that prevent this game from taking the title of "Mother of All Games": namely, the restriction of only ever having one opponent available. Gone are the days of wild 10-player carnage, and impromptu alliances and betrayals and while it may have been difficult to implement additional players when Pocket Tanks was first developed, in the 20 years since, other more recent "Scorch-likes" have upped the player counts as technology improved.

Even if multiple opponents were added to the Vs AI or Local Play modes only, this game would remain on my device for years to come. As it stands, it's a nice but fleeting reminder of those days of DOS, long gone by.

Pay to win

Pocket tanks is my favorite game and I have a lot of fun playing online and with friends. But I have to take away a star because it is pay to win. You can buy weapon packs in the game and it’s not like they’re at least balanced. They are very overpowered weapons. Every time I go against someone that owns them I forfeit because I don’t even stand a chance because their score will be over 1,000 while mine is 300. There’s this one guy named bigvally who I hate playing against the most. I hate this guy with a passion just because of his stupid weapons it’s Just unfair. How is this gam even fun for you if you’re guaranteed the win?
