Here's an article from Pocket Gamer:

I had no idea this existed and I am excited. Hopefully the links work. Maybe a more skilled thread creator/moderator can give this the full treatment (pictures, description, avatar).

And just like that, Andy is on it! Anyone interested should probably download this soon; see the article link I posted up top for background. Haven't had a chance to play it yet and don't know if there are ads and/or IAP.

picked this up this morning after it got Jeff Minte's seal of approval in the twittersphere. It's tilt only but don't let that put you off. Man I loved battlezone as a boy. The way the tanks et al explode is beautiful.

Pretty much, yes. The tilt controls work well enough but it's a shame the touch controls from Vector Tanks Extreme didn't make it in. Those worked perfectly, I thought. The game's still definitely worthwhile.

Thanks for the heads-up Andy.
This is absolutely outstanding.

I think the tilt controls work really well.
There is a tiny bit of deadzone in them that prevents the "always tilting" jitter that plagues tilt-based games.

Oops! I didn't scroll up far enough to find the true OP.
I stand corrected.

Thanks Guise for the heads-up!

Love the graphics, seems very smooth. Sadly though i'm just not a tilt person, I'll keep an eye on this in case theres an update
