App description: Realistic 3D Armored Warfare puts you in the thick of tactical artillery action! This mobile artillery game app uses real physics and models based on actual vehicles and weaponry to provide the ultimate gaming experience on an iPhone or iPod Touch. Players are provided with tools and maps but winning the war is up to you. Click "...More" to learn why you should download this App.

There you are, facing the enemy. Only one of you can survive a direct hit, its either you or him. The situation is tense, you need careful aim but you need to be quick, too! Lining up the sites in your M1A2 tank, you prepare to launch your secret weapon the cluster cumulative shell. Everythings in place, you fire but notice that your enemy has taken his best shot, as well. Time seems to slow down as you watch to see if your shell hits its mark and find out who will die. Is it you?

Armored Warfare is a tactical artillery game that uses physics and 3D imagery to give you a profound sense of realism. Each of the armored units has a design based on the real thing. Youll be playing as though you are participating in real combat, facing enemy attack and strategizing your routes and shots.

All of the tanks are unique but you can make a fully informed decision about which one to use because the game gives you stats. Youll know the size, firing power, armor and secret weapon of a vehicle before making your selection. As you spend more time playing the game, youll learn which ones are the best for defeating your enemies and destroying obstacles that stand in your way.

The app doesnt just plop you in a tank and send you on your way. Youll be given maps of the various landscapes, which will prove invaluable to planning your way around those obstacles and for choosing the best vehicle for your mission.

One of the perks of Armored Warfare is that you can play against the CPU if youre alone, or with a friend in the player versus player mode. That means you can play anywhere at anytime.

When youve built up some tactical artillery confidence, you can try one of the more difficult levels of game play. There are three available, which should keep you and a buddy going for a very long time. You might want to become something of an expert before challenging a friend. Get lots of practice and then watch the other guy squirm as your show him how Armored Warfare is really won.

Armored Warfare Features:
* Full 3D graphics, with realistic models
* Real physics
* Two game modes (player vs player, player vs CPU)
* Three difficulty levels
* Two sides of confrontation with unique armored units (M1 Abrams, T-90, M270, BM-30 Smerch)
* Each unit has it's unique alternative weapon
* Different maps with various landscapes
* Destroyable obstacles
* Easy, touch screen controls
* Moveable camera for best observation

Armored Warfare gives a soldier every tool he might need. The built-in camera views can be changed to ensure that you know whos coming up on your flank or where that enemy tank you saw earlier is sitting. Put that together with all of the other great features that this app offers and you have every advantage of a professional tactical artillery squad leader.

What are you waiting for? Get the Armored Warfare app now and starting winning the war.

Future Updates Coming Soon:
* Online multiplayer mode
* Campaign mode

Looks erotic. I love artillery games, so I might just TOFTT on this one.

Thanks, Hmar9333. It does look very good. Gameplay would be the tricky bit. Can't wait for review.

Ok, I've only been playing for about 5 minutes, and so far it seems to be a fairly solid artillery game, graphics are quite nice, and trees can be destroyed, which is a nice touch (no pun intended) But the element that will ultimately make or break this game is the controls.

When you fist start up the game, there doesn't appear to be any instructions, so you'll have to play a game to work out the controls (it's not too hard, but an instructions manual would be nice). You'll also need to get a feel for the physics and power of the weapons.
When I first started playing the controls felt quite awkward, but already, even after just a few minutes, the game seems easier to play as I am getting more and more used to the controls.
One complaint I do have is that when you are adjusting the vertical angle of your shot, the camera is positioned in such a way that you often can't see your opponents. It's not a deal breaker and I still find it relatively easy to aim, but it would be nice if that camera was zoomed out a bit.
Another nice feature is that the secondary weapon on a couple of the tanks is a guided missile, and when you launch it, you get to directly control it and aim it however you like. Once again the controls for this take a little bit of getting used to, but it won't be long before you'll be using the feature with ease.

There was one problem I noticed though, one of the vehicles is a sort of rocket truck with 6 or so barrels mounted on the back of a semi-trailer, and if you aim the rockets at the cockpit of the truck you shoot yourself...

Anyway,

At the moment the game doesn't have a lot of depth (skirmish mode, 2 maps, 2 different teams with 3 vehicles each, 3 difficulty settings) but the AI is solid, the future updates sound sweet, and it's only $0.99

The Verdict:
If you are a fan of artillery games this one is definately worth a look for only $0.99.

Your definition of erotic and mine are vastly different.

I was thinking the same thing when I read that.

Unless that was an accurate observation, and the game is actually Tank Porn.

Two guys walked into a bar. You think they would've seen it or something.

Well I use erotic very loosely, I use it to mean: looks very good, as opposed to the dictionary definition.

It's Objectum-Sexualis. Like that woman who "married" the Berlin Wall until some heartless bastards killed it.

This does look like a pretty decent Scorched Earth 3D type deal, but there really needs to be a nice texture plastered on that skybox just to avoid that surreal, empty-feeling landscape.
