My name is Abraham Stolk, I am an indie game developer. My main claim to fame are the 7M+ downloads of my Crane Simulator.

My upcoming game is called Buggy Bang! Bang!. It will feature head-to-head multi player combat with accurately simulated physics.
See this video of an early network test to get an idea how accurate the tank-tank collisions are, e.g.

Default New shader

I'm using a new shader for Buggy Bang! Bang!
Still the buttery smooth 60fps, but looking less flat now.

In the shot, the buggy is making a wheelie.
The nice thing about four-wheel steering is that under wheelies, steering remains 100% functional :-)

Thanks Drelbs,

A quick update: the Game is coming along nicely.
It currently has five single player levels, and two 2-player maps.
The 2-player matches will be death-match or capture-the-flag and will use Game Center for match making and leader boards.
The network communication will be peer-to-peer, so no servers involved.

In most single player matches you will battle against an AI tank.
The AI aims a lot quicker than humans, and is deadly accurate against stationary targets, so you have to outsmart it and make sure you stay covered.

Not sure yet how to monetize it. I think I will go with ads, and a small IAP to remove ads. Monetization is not a primary concern at this moment, I want to concentrate on building a user base first, and then later think about purchases.


Match making is region based to ensure low network latencies. I will be battling in the pacific league myself, against you San Fran gamers :-) I think LA is one league to the east.


One of the arenas. The red line is for debugging AI. The enemy tank has not spotted you yet.

Default Trailer

So the game is nearing completion.
I expect it to be released soon.
To prepare for the release, I created a trailer.
Watch it on youtube: http://youtu.be/eoMWHAU7RRM
