App description: The most GLORIOUS multiplayer tank warfare available online. Blast your enemies! Collect gold! Earn your stars, trooper! NO ADS and two gameplay modes to choose from:

Multiplayer: Battle players from around the world in real-time using Game Center. Collect as much gold as you can find. The player with the most kills wins!

1 Player: Fight against Otto, Bruno, and Yabo while pillaging their gold. Earn stars based on skill & heroism to unlock all the levels. Amount of stars earned depends on how much gold is collected, kill score, and kill ratio. Blast tanks and avoid being killed!

Use Gold to buy anti-tank mines from the Armory. Strategically place mines to block enemies, or drop them in the trees to leave a nasty surprise. Mines can be dropped once every 30 seconds.

Controls and Play:
Use yer thumb to control the tank. Shoot by tapping with the other hand. Use that big mine shaped button to drop mines (duh).

Tell friends to get Heroic Tanks. Send them Game Center match-invites, and battle online!

Note: When inviting a friend to a match be sure to delete any extra player slots before inviting them. Tap the "x" on player slots to remove them. Otherwise Game Center will try to fill those extra player slots with random players and may be unable to do so.

Try looking for multiplayer matches exactly on the hour. Say, for example, 2pm, 3pm, 4pm...etc. That way people are looking at the same time and able to match up.

At first it will be hard to find other players to play against at any given moment. Deathmatch is a lot of fun in this game though and we tried hard to make it so. Try looking for matches exactly on the hour. Say 9am, 10am, 11am...etc. That way people are looking at the same time and able to match up.

You can also invite friends via Game Center or right in the game itself using the Game Center interface. Just be sure to remove the 4th and 3rd player otherwise it will try to fill those spots, but likely won't be able to find extra players to do so.

And while you wait for more multiplayer opponents, the single player game is good training. I hope you guys like the bots. Please leave some feedback and let us know what you'd like to see in future updates. Making a multiplayer game was a lot of work, and we just want people to have fun.

Heroic Tanks

Dig it. reminds me when Q3 came out. Times of UT. Decent throwback. Nice tight controls even for touch(my biggest complaint for phone games), it getting a bit old the retro style but I like it. Nice old school feel, A2600 combat on steroids. would love to see a single player story type game, or coop player verion would be wicked. Resisting trying Morbius Final Fantasy... Since all the comments. final fantasy has been disappointing of late.

now time for some smiles cause I never use em..

Awesome to hear you're enjoying the game! We worked hard to get the feel right. We definately are considering creating a single player campaign with long maps to fight through. If we have enough support that's definately something we'd like to create.

multiplayer issue?

Hmmm... multiplayer doesn't seem to work all the time, add friends to a game and it kinda hangs.

Hi Kekwan, how many friends are you inviting to a match? When does it hang? Does it get to the "synchronizing" message?

Hey Kekwan, when you invite 1 or 2 friends to a match be sure you delete the extra player slot before inviting your friends. Otherwise I think Game Center will try to fill the 3rd and 4th slot with random players but may be unable to do so if there isn't anybody else looking for a match at that moment. So make sure to remove those extra player slots first.

Hope this helps!
