App description: Solving puzzles with a panzer is fun. This is what critics and players say about 'the little tank that could':

"A fantastic game, and a must have for any iPhone owner: GOLD AWARD" (iPhoneWorld)

"It is amazing, the graphics fit perfectly, the controls are easy to get used to, and the physics are really well done." (Legowiz)

"I have been playing the crap out of it. Cool game." (Dana)

"The physics in the game are incredibly accurate and everything moves and falls exactly as you would expect." (iPhoneWorld)

This is the LITE version of the little tank that could. It's what I call a panzer-puzzler. You steer your panzer through the level using Newtonian physics. Make your tank smash, roll, jump and fly through or over obstacles. And if nothing else helps, just fire your gun. The game features a state of the art physics simulation where each link in the tracks is faithfully simulated using Chipmunk's physics engine.

The lite tank that could features three fun-packed levels with entertaining challenges. Upgrading to the full version will
give you 9 more levels, and an online leaderboard.

And now on iPad!

Heh.... that's the advantage of vector graphics: no sprites/textures to rescale.
The little tank that could is already running on the iPad
Ported from iPhone to iPod in an hour or so.

See the footage of a 1024x768 hires version of the game in action on youtube. It shows some action of the first level of the LITE version.
