How To Play The SuperTank
==============================
Because many users write to me and ask how to play the 3D game SuperTank, i write down a simple instruction here.
First of all, the SuperTank is not the same as other Tanks Game or any other shoot games. it will lock the aim, just like the real weapon or missile in the world.
the copter will drop you on the island , then you are free from the copter.
1. Tap the GAS button and hold on it , it runs ahead.
2. When you see or meet the enemy tank, just Tap the enemy tank in 3D world ( Tap the enemy tank on the screen ), it will lock the tank and aim at it.
3. Then , Tap fire button to shoot out cannonball, the enemy tanks will run around to dodge bullets and fire you.
4. If you did not want to be killed , please run around to dodge bullets. or call the copter for help ( Tap the copter button, if you have the copter caller).
5. When you kill the enemy tanks it will drop some property, such as gold , copter caller, fast gun, and health cabinet .
6. And you can go to the repair building to repair your injured tanks .
That's all . if you still did not find out how to play it , please visite our game Website for more information and watch the Demo Video .

We do the best to make this game more splendid & exciting and we hope you like it.

Fletch's comments:


The developer is also working on a HUGE update, that has been taking a mysteriously long time to unveil itself...

A couple months ago the dev posted:

Quote:
thanks your attention .
the current SuperTank has 8 maps and missions . the game control has been changed to free shoot with a collimator . and alot of UI changed
you will find it is a tank game killer in iPhone store

i am doing the test with the OS3.0 test. and adjust the final parameter , for example how many enemy can attack you at the same time. and the run speed, bullet fly speed, missile fly speed and power etc.

Please give me more time to do the test, i did not want to release a tinpot tank game

and also you can see some test maps pictures i send in the website. but the picture is captured about 1 month ago http://iphogame.com/mapstmp/

Anyone wanna test-drive it? The only thing I'm Leary about is the app description makes it seem as though forward/back tilt is only accel. And reverse option therefore I can only assume w/o tilt calibration this has to be played device flat.

If no one bites, what's another couple bucks I'm @ about 50 buck the past week and a half.

Nice graphics, and large textured play-field. Decent movement controls.

I have tried accessing the developers web-site, to no avail. There are no instructions in association with on screen buttons. This one inclusion, I'm sure, would have made my introduction into the game enjoyable instead of frustrating.

There are three different tank types which is your only pre-game option. They have different statistics(attack, speed, and armor). Control of the tank movement is a "gas pedal" on your bottom left and left/right tilt controls. No reverse that I can figure out.

Now the really frustrating; shooting. I can randomly get my machine to shoot bullets, but for the life of me I cannot reproduce it. I have pored over the appstore description a multitude of times and it says you can lock on a target and shoot, or shoot free form. Not in my simple world! If you stop your tank from moving, then left/right tilt rotates the turret, I aim it straight at an enemy tank, press shoot-nothing. I've tried holding shoot, holding, let go and tap, you name it I've failed at it.

There is a no2 for speed burst, and a health bay for replenishing armor and energy fuel etc..

The game description says collaborative heli-tank attacks, I've not been able to produce that either.

I would really like to know how to contact the developers, as this game is dripping with awesome potential, but I don't know if the games final appstore build has bugs, or if I simply need "walked through" the UI(I have tried every imaginable possible push., tap etc...

As is a 1 to 2 star app, so I'll hold off reviewing until I can hopefully reach a representative of iPhoGame.


Btw, I think this qualifies me as a guest member of TOFTT!
