I felt like something was missing from my recent benevolent urge to splash out on games, and realized it was Vector Tanks. Sorry Peter, but at least I finally bought it!
And I LOVE IT! Real hark back to the days of arcade cabinets and hardcore gameplay! It's really frightful when you see a tank dead ahead, but not sideways... He's actually firing at you and you desperately try to evade, sometimes by a whisker, most likely not! The thrill of one-hit kills was great!
Add another request for deeper base on explosions pls!
And looking forward to any other vector games... Would love a tempest one!!!

Cheers! Oh and pricing is perfect. Don't change pls. Not because I would feel jealous. But because you deserve it for making such a fathfully revival of this classic. Great job!

I got about halfway through modeling a helicopter but got distracted by other things.

It will probably be 1.3 before the helicopters are in as 1.2 will have additional tanks, tanks with turrets, and more than one tank attacking at a time. Im hoping to wrap that up by next week.

When you get the update, Id love to hear your feedback!

Online leaderboards is something I am looking into right now and will definitely be in an upcoming version. That and network play are my 2 most requested features!

The update is live, and I'm really happy about expert mode The new Icon is Sick!

EDIT: I did search and didn't find the other thread at first. It wasn't listed when I searched Vector Tanks

YES!

I will definitely be doing network multiplayer. I actually bought another iPod Touch the other day just for the purpose of developing this feature. My plan is for 1. multiplayer all-out deathmatch, and 2. a 2 player cooperative mode where one player drives the tank and the other player controls the turret and firing. That is going to rock.

So yes - I am working on it. I just want to release 1.2 first that has additional tank types and multiple tanks attacking at the same time. Then leaderboards and multiplayer.

Also in the works - a killer soundtrack (and I do hear those asking for the ability to play their own music, so I am looking into that as well).

Even though I have seen this thread a hundred times or more, for some reason this time, I thought it read Vectorman. Blood almost shot out of my nose, anime style. Seriously, I want Vectorman.
