Tankz v1.5 ready for submission!

Finally, Tankz v1.5 has been handed over to my publisher for submission.

It's turned into an absolutely HUGE update with more than 5x the levels, two new enemies, a new player tank, some new and improved art, level unlocking, mini-maps, best score and time tracking, more comprehensive high scores breakdown, global ranks system, some VO, some feature requests, new game options, Twitter support and some bug fixes.

I am sure anyone that already owns Tankz is going to totally enjoy this comprehensive update... and for those of you that were sitting on the fence... time to jump off. Tankz v1.5 will be going up to $1.99.

Wow, the update looks amazing. I can't wait to try this out, did you add a new icon in the end?

Are flags and baddies placed on the level randomly or according to a set course?

My first guess would be "Voice Over" and or just the concept of having some person's voice saying "Good Job!" as opposed to just showing the text to that effect but no clue how that would play in this game.

v1.5 is out now and it looks impressive.

But, the game itself.

Are these set courses and pre-scripted enemy placements or is any of this randomized for the arenas?

That update took one hell of a long time to get approved.

I'd been on the fence about this one, but with such an impressive update, I gotta buy it.
