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, though flaws are obvious.

I’ve played this game hundreds of times. I play it at least ten times a day. With that said it’s a great time spender.

The downsides are the AI and the weapons. The AI I’d say after level 3 hits you directly every time. Even if you have perfect aim this leads to problem two: the weapons.

Generally the weapons are fun and silly, but there’s an obvious uneven distribution of power. Sometimes you’re left with on or two truly offensive weapons and the rest are useless defensive weapons. If the balancing was better this game would be near perfect.

Sometimes after the computer goes you are locked into such a terrible position with such terrible weapons it’s almost more fun to restart the game for a more even match.

Regardless, worth the download but just play on a lower setting or with friends.

Can be entertaining but with many flaws.

I downloaded this after Tank Stars became practically unplayable with running ads while your game clock is running. Who does that?? Tank Stars does 😡. This one is entertaining with its silly weapons but has one major flaw that irks me... moving the tank. You only get 4 chances to move and its basically foward and back just a fews steps done by AI, you really have no control over it. Additionally, any uphill bump and the tank can not proceed foward. Tanks are generally designed to go over obstacles. I know its a game but come on, stick to the physics of a tank. Aiming has a HUGE curve. It takes a while for you to learn just to get close to your opponent as it is mainly a loop up and drop style of aiming. Also there is no real ladder of online competition. You dont earn anything, move up levels, no real reward for playing against someone else online. If they fixed those? Then it would be a 5 star game.

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.
