App description: Tank Raider
-----------

Tank Raider is an intuitive and fast-paced strategic shooter. The game plays out across three beautifully illustrated levels. It sees you the player venture out into the terrain to collect as many gems as you can and bring them back to your base. Remember though, raiding bases is the name of the game! With three opponents each vying for the top spot you have no alternative but to head into enemy territory to steal what you can.

Levels
------

Three gorgeous levels include

- Deep in the heart of the amazon jungle.
- The harsh and barren plains of the desert.
- The sprawling icy alpine tundra.

Control system
--------------

Designed from the ground up specifically for iPhone/iPod Touch, Tank Raiders unique and revolutionary control mechanism makes controlling the tank feel so natural and easy. No on-screen gadgets or buttons, simply draw out a path with you finger and the tank will follow. This allows you to plot complex routes through the terrain with ease.

The combat system has also received special attention, to engage a target simply tap on your victim. Your tank is equipped with an automatic targeting system, once a target is selected the turret will lock on and open fire. Your tank will maintain the lock and continue engaged the enemy even if you decide to take evasive action. The targeting system is programed with just one directive it absolutely will not stop . ever!

AI
--

Tank Raiders AI features sophisticated analytical algorithms that adapt to your reactions. When you encounter an enemy in Tank Raider they portray an almost human like emotional response. If, for example, the enemy has collected a stash of gems, they are less inclined to pick a fight with you, instead they will skirt around the trees trying to avoid you. If, however, that same enemy has recently spawned and encounters you well, depending on how frustrated theyre feeling, they might just pick a fight with you for the hell of it!

Power-Ups
---------

- Red star, gives you super bullets and allows you to crush your enemy during battle.
- Yellow star, increases your speed, assisting your escape!
- Green star - replenishes your health, gives you the edge when harvesting gems.

If you've had your iDevice for over a year, chances are you've played some tank games. For some reason last night when I saw this one, something about it stands out. Which is odd as there's no online integration/scores.

Hi mmadden2,

I got my iTouch for Christmas, and I'm a sucker for Tank games. You gotta buy your first few apps at some point right?

Can't believe I didn't get a touch earlier some of the games you can get for this thing are amazing. Just sorry I'm so late arriving to the party
