Mega Tank

This is Al from Game Gardeners and I would like to share with you our upcoming game Mega Tank!!

It is a hybrid castle defense and endless runner. It is an art game lovingly crafted by a few people.

The story is simple. The old model robots are going to be recycled by the corporation, and so they rebel, jump in their Mega Tank, and plan to teach Earthmart a lesson and roll until the treads fall off. The original idea for the game comes from the street art and fine art of Poor Al's Earthmart universe.

Here is the trailer for the game...



We are currently in soft launch in a few countries and only on iPad. We are working on the iPhone version, and making sure it is ready for worldwide launch.

I will post news and updates here about the game, and you can additionally follow us at Twitter or Facebook.

I can't wait to play this game on my iPhone. I don't have an iPad.

So how do the on screen controls work? Give us some more information! The game trailer is really awesome!

Billy-

Glad you like the game trailer. We are really proud and excited to get it into more people's hands.

Will answer your question regarding the controls here.

The player touches on the weapon on the tank to activate it. Then you use the aimer that appears to point the weapon in the area you want to hit with fire. Weapons either use a 'cone' aimer or a sliding 'area fire' aimer that slides back and forth. Most weapons auto-fire until out of ammo, and then reload. Some are manual press weapons like the ground mounted ones and the Longbow 8200zx Sniper Rifle. There are 26 upgradable weapons in the launch game.

Power-ups are used by touching them. Some are automatic use, and some are manual and require secondary aiming. There are 9 starting power-ups in the game. Player can have 2 armed with a 1 stack tank, 4 with a 2 stack tank, and 6 with a 3 stack tank.

Here is a link to video of a team member actually playing the game (with fingers in the movie so you can see how they play it):

We will post more screenshots, weapon videos and some history on the art of the game in future posts!! Let us know if you have any other questions, we'll be happy to give you more info!!

I meant to say thank you for the response. I apologize for not getting back to you. It sounds like it's going to be an intense experience. The control scheme sounds really good.
