Pico Tanks - Multiplayer Mayhem
Pico Tanks is a casual but competitive, team based multiplayer mobile shooter, focused on action-packed combat and rewarding team play. Pico Tanks will be free to download on the App Store and Google Play.
Before entering a battle the player must build their tank with items unlocked and upgraded in the Research Tree. Each item in the Research Tree has a cost associated with it. Currency to unlock and upgrade items is earned by competing in battles, leveling up and completing challenges. Players can also customize the appearance of their tank by adding tank toppers and antennas.
After being matched with other players and entering a battle the player chooses a tank that best complements their team's composition. Players are rewarded for performing tasks crucial to their team's success in one of several game modes. Some of these tasks include; completing objectives, supporting team members, and destroy enemy tanks.
A player’s tank consists of a base, weapon and abilities.
The base is what moves a player's tank around the battlefield, is also determines the tanks health points, speed, stability and the number of ability slots.Some examples of tank bases include:
- Typical tank base
The tank weapon is mounted on the top of the player's tank base and is the primary means of destroying the enemy. The player's weapon choice determines their effective combat range and how best to approach enemies. Weapons vary greatly in damage/healing dealt, projectile speed, projectile trajectory, effective range, fire rate, reload speed and kickback. Our goal is to have a weapon selection comparable to the Worms series of games by Team17. Some weapon examples include:
- Standard cannon
- Bounce cannon
- Homing missile
Abilities are the extra tools the player can use to obliterate the enemy or support their team. Some examples of abilities include:
- Personal bubble shield
- Targeted airstrike
- Deployable turret
We hope to start a closed beta in a few months and an open beta mid 2018.
Post release we're are planning to add a survival mode where a solo player or team fights increasingly difficult waves of AI enemies, more content and possible release on console.
Check back for updates
