AppLoot Review 4 out of 5 stars.
"So there's a lone rocket man (go put on some Elton John, I know you want to) and he's shooting the hell out of tanks. Sounds cool right? Maybe the plot to the next Rambo movie? No, it's just what you could be doing if you played Open Fire Gold."

Out of curiosity, what turns you off? Is it the genre? Do the screen shots/video not look interesting? We're always looking for ways to improve, so any critique is valuable

i played the game a bit and it is kinda addicting
your aim is to avoid tanks to get on the other side of the screen ( in survival) or to kill as many tanks as possible
you can shoot with rockets or you can set mines on the bottom
and there are 2 powerups
one lets you shoot faster the other one lets you shoot 3 rockets
you can also get a "super attack" if you shoot fast enough
the grafic is well made and reminds me a bit of the pictures if the irak in every days tv news
the game runs smooth on my first gen ipod
the sounds effects are good
the controls : 1 finger tap = you shoot a rocket at the position the finger is
2 finger tap = you set a mine
the controls work good but i would like to see a fast double tap for the mines
there are a few more things i would like to see:
a powerup that slows down all tanks ( maybe 1/2 speed)
a new mode where have to shoot only at enemy tanks and you have to save your own
(and maybe a small story mode )
