Great Tank War: Dual Stick Tank Combat

Kind of stunned that there's no thread on this game yet -- it came out on July 1st, just went on sale for $.99 (the price in appinfo is wrong), and it's up to 54 in the top selling apps.



I actually bought it at the original price (I'm a sucker for tank games) fully expecting the worst, even with the good reviews it's getting; Nate Games has released some pretty awful cellphone ports. Thankfully, this isn't one of them, though I'm not sure it was worth the original price.

Here's a video:

And yes, that's the in-game music -- kind of bizarre, considering how much the description emphasizes "realistic" tanks and combat.

Thanks for the vid. Is there an option to keep the sound effects but lose the music?

Yes, there is.

EDIT: What an amazing coincidence: I bought this last night and waited till today to start the thread -- 3 minutes before the developer started his own. Mods, feel free to close this one -- I'll copy my comments to the other one.

Looks like Dev posted his own page here at the same time as SquareZero:
