App description: Alert! Alert! Alert!

Navigate your Stella Tank to the ends of the solar system by moving through live alien minefields and other obstacles. Can you reach the Safe Pad and conquer all the minefields that lay before you?

TankATron takes you back to an era of your childhood, where flashing lights, cool sound effects and putting in another coin into the arcade machine was a magic moment.

TankATron features a unique atmosphere effect , where the player can choose to add real arcade sounds and effects to the game. You will think you had gone back in time to your favorite amusement arcade and youll love the addictive game play that TankATron features.

The game features touch activated controls, which are hidden on screen until you touch the screen in certain places. Please see the How To Play link on the main menu screen.

I love arcade games and wanted to create something not seen before and create a retro looking arcade game from the 1970s/early 80s.

Take on dangerous alien hordes and rescue the stranded astronauts in this great looking retro arcade gameyoull love it for its simplistic graphics and game play.

Retro is backwelcome to the arcade game TankATron

Hello Everyone

I am a IOS developer and I have just completed my very first game. TankATron is a throwback to the old 70's arcade games, which I have a passion for.

It is a very retro looking game and as you can see from the screenshots, very colourful. I have included a unique retro arcade sound system, which replicates the sounds of an arcade if the player so wishes.

Here is the iTunes link if you want to check it out. You will also see a You Tube link to a video of TankATron being played through the Gamesalad system that I used to create the app.


Here are some screenshots to show you what the app looks like...

I hope you like the look of my app and I welcome any feedback you have.

Many thanks
