Judging from the screens and video, this game is just up my alley. Same principle as in Blaster Tank and Crazy Tanks for iPhone. Both a clone of a great pc game I can't recall the name of..

This game looks to introduce a nice twist on the genre.
Look forward to when this is available in Denmark!

This game does NOT work on my iPad 2. Starts up, but as soon as the actual game starts, black screen. If I home button out, then app switch back in, I can see the pause screen, but as soon as I tap Resume, again, complete black screen.

I'd wait for a patch...

I'm pretty disappointed in the game.. It's just way too easy.

Also, I wish there was weapons upgrades between the levels like in many similar games, and added difficulty to match.

As it is, there's weapon-drops, which only works a few seconds, after which you go back to default weapon.
The default weapon isn't very powerful, thus, they have to make all the enemies very weak...

It would have been much better with escalating difficulty and harder enemies combined with some way to earn money to upgrade weapons and buy new ones.

Just wanted to point out that, in another thread (the non-HD thread on these forums), someone else with an iPad 2 has no problems running the game.

I'm running the same OS version as he is, so I'm stumped as to why this is happening.

That would be me..
I have an iPad 2 Wi-Fi 64 GB, iOS 4.3.3, and I have no problems running the game...
