Toy Tanks 3D

This looks pretty polished. I haven't tried it yet, but I probably will. I'll post my thoughts on it if I do.

I noticed that, too. Could still be fun though.
Has anyone bought this yet?

Hmmm my prediction is: this is boring and unremarkable.

In the video it seems that you don't need to aim exactly on the enemies, just press to fire? LOL

I hope you can turn that off (so that you have to aim more exactly), otherwise this is way to easy...

okay now I couldn't resist...

Normal tank fire is without automatical projective direction, you really have to aim, which is pretty funny.

You can shoot at Boxes which include 4 rocket fire, they are targetting automaticly, but you don't find them too often, so you really must aim with the normal fire!

Graphics are really awesome, I didn't notice any flimmering on object borders.

This old Preussen Marsch music is really thrilling

EDIT: About the railway "Shooter" thing, sometimes you have 5 enemies or more nearby,and your old tank doesn't turn around that fast, so you have to make sometimes tactical decisions which you shoot first, which won't hurt you so fast. So it's not necessary too easy!
