Vector Tanks v1.1 is out!

Just popped up in my updates! Woo!

EDIT: I tested it out and it's pretty good. I like the brightness setting and the menus. And the difficulty settings are nice to have too.
Also I like how now there's a little menu button next to the radar map that you press and slide to the right to pause and use the pause menu.

Apps iLove: iBooks, Podcasts, Tweetbot, Reeder, Instapaper, SoundHound, MLS Live
Games iLove: Real Racing 2, Minecraft, Fieldrunners 2, Great Big War Game, FIFA 12

Everything looked great.

Except: how to play exits game and opens safari for instructions.

Not a concern for me personally since I'm used to the controls but wouldn't be too appealing for new adopters. ;p

Just got it, small enough to get via HSDPA, which is really good.

No time to dig into it fttb -- still at work!

Great update. Although I don't like the new icon as much as the old one!

Now Peter (should you read this and aren't sick of the question), can't you take this brilliant game engine and turn it into something like that other well known vector based game that involves flying around space and down trenches....?

Hey, you mean this?

Actually, I see no reason why I don't want this also:

In avoid certain troubles, Peter, I think you can rename one object as "Death Ball" or "Iserlohn Fortress" or anything you see fit.

Star Warriors?
Vector Starfighter?
Rebel Alliance?

I think Peter could start his own franchise of "Vector" games, like John Kooistra has with his "Blue" games

Empire wasn't nearly as good as Star Wars though.
