I'd say so. More depth, Zoom, Better weapon effects, plenty of options.

No, but it's freaking POCKET TANKS DELUXE!

This blows iShoot out of the water. I've been a LOOOOONG time fan of Pocket Tanks. I mean that I've been playing it for about 7 years now on my PC. I'm an active member on their forums, and have had input on the game.

Mike [the developer] took 8 months and completely rewrote the game in openGL for the iPhone/iPod. He revamped the PC/Mac version in the process, so an update for the actual game should be coming out soon. This guy put a lot of work into this game [not that other developers don't], and is a great developer, which almost guarantees a rock solid game.He has mentioned that, yes, free updates will provide more weapons in the future.

This game is a definite purchase/download for any fan of iShoot or the original Pocket Tanks. Even if you've never played either, I suggest you pick this one up.

Not sure if the full game is worth 3.99 when you consider the amount of high quality games that are available for 79c. I'll download the free version though.
