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.

Ratings and Reviews
It Has Potential
This game is really fun and addicting, I just wish that the online play was better. When you play pvp online it takes sometimes up to ten minutes for the player to take their turn. It’d be better if it only matched you up against players who are actually PLAYING at the time the gzz as me starts. If you choose to start a online battle and no one is available it still connects you with the first person to try and play online which leads to you sitting there forever waiting for the other person to take their shot, usually you’ll have to wait until the next time you log in to see if they took their turn. Idk the game has a ton of potential to be an excellent online PvP game.
My childhood has returned.
I finally found this game after about 7 years. I played this all the time as a kid. I never won a single game but I had too much fun listening to the fantastic soundtrack and watching the weapon effects. I finally won my first game coming back today. I’m glad to see the game is still being worked on. I also just found out this game came out in 2001. Dang, 20 years. Congratulations on keeping the masterpiece alive for 20 years! I can’t see myself getting ready to stop playing anytime soon. Thank you for keeping the updates running so we can play on modern devices. Most old games can’t be played on newer phones. But this one has existed for 20 years yet we can still use it!
Special thanks to the developers for providing the greatest childhood experience!
Great game, but online play desperately needs a time limit
The game itself is awesome and plays just like it used to 20 years ago. The AI is pinpoint at anting about mid-level difficulty, so I thought I’d play against real people for a more balanced experience.
Online play is terrible, flat out. There is no time limit to fire, so you never know if they just quit as soon you land a hit (seems pretty common) or if they are aiming. There needs like a 60 or 90 second time out before it just fires the current settings, or forfeits you for inactivity. There’s no need to have every match end on the second rally because the enemy hasn’t done anything for literally 10 minutes. Frustrating, and the online menu navigation isn’t the most clear either.
Please, add a time out or kick for idle activity feature, and then this will be an awesome experience again since the game itself is great.
