This is just screaming for multiplayer! Hope they have some plans for it. Im downloading it now.

Edit:
Dear devs,
WTF were you thinking making this free?
-NotYou

I played only a couple rounds and I love it so far! The contols are better than any tank game I've played so far, the animations are great and very appropriate, and the the level design is (so far) perfect for this type of game. Why it's free is beyond me. If this had multiplayer, I'd be playing it all day.

This game is very nice, and polished (been forever since I used that word). Unfortunately I don't like these type of games, but it's definitely download worthy.

Hello there !

As the general manager of our institute, I'd like to thank you for all these good words !

It took a lot of love from our students and our staff to get this result and our main goal was to get a funny tank gameplay !

Also the animation work was made in order to give each tank a different personality - especially when wounded

We definitely consider the multiplayer option and are currently working on a significant update (new playable tanks to unlock, a brand new battleground and of course more missions, plus some extra goodies...).

BTW, the game is deliberately free - for the moment !
Our games are our business cards

If you like this game, you may also have a look at our Flash games in our website (Shooting star is a pretty nice and polished one too and the upcoming Flubs has a lot a fun inside !)

Again, thanks for the good words: it's our best reward !

Jerome

Hey, that really is pretty polished. Quite probably one of the best freebies on the App Store, really. Could use some Retina love, but for free who can complain? Very nicely done, and speaks well of the Institute.
