Tank-O-Box is out

Tank-O-Box

There are numerous tank games on the app store, but this one still looks like it could be interesting.

This looks like Payback with a tank.

It seems they have a free one hour timed demo on their website. Don't know if it's the same as the iphone version but I'm downloading.

Don't like the top down view, nothing touches VECTOR TANKS, even Crazy Tanks gets old quick

Based on the Youtube video, it looks pretty good, and some of the old reviews seem to back that up.

55 levels eh? That's impressive. The video reminds me of that old school tank game that tests your skils by limiting your mobility. You can only move left right up or down one direction at a time, no strafing. Looks fun.

To those trying it out, what kind of structure does it have? Is it an arcade game in which you try for a highscore and you have to start from scratch when you lose. Or is it mission-by-mission in which you can choose your mission. Is there a medal or achievement type system?

I played the demo and it's pretty cool. They add elements to the game as you progress through the levels. I recommend trying that demo first...I linked to it in my previous post. I might get it. I dunno though, no hurry for it.

I want to hear how the controls are for the iPhone version first.
