Description

Tankz is a fast paced arcade styled single player hover tank fighting game where you control one of four futuristic hover tanks in a non-stop battle against enemy towers and tanks, while you search for and collect all of the flags to complete the game.

Enemy tanks patrol areas of each level, but if you get too close or shoot them from the distance, they will hunt you down and destroy you. Watch out for enemy proximity mines that get dropped around the level.

Tankz v1.5 NEW features
- TWELVE new unlock-able arenas (4 per existing theme) !!
- Three difficulty settings (Easy, Hard and Crazy)... Easy is now very easy with one shot kills and long delay before enemies shoot you. Hard is what easy was, and crazy is what hard was.
- Best times and scores are kept locally on device, per arena, to let ou know what you need to beat. Gives element of playing against yourself as well as globally.
- New player tank... Scorpion.
- New enemy laser tower (shoots laser beams rather then projectiles - ouch)
- New enemy tank "General" that shoots red plasma balls at you. It doesn't chase you down, but shoot at you from a distance, and the plasma balls explode into deadly particles. Does big damage if you are too close.
- Tank barrels now animate recoil when firing and have muzzel flash.
- Added VO for elements like Ammo Low, Tweet sent, congratulations, etc....
- New Mini-Maps that showcase enemies and pickups (and you) on the map... Map is visble when not driving, and is hidden when driving.
- New Bunker System 5 area challenge level, (looks hot!) These areas are played sequentially, and must all be completed to finish. End area has a cool new challenge at the end to get to the exit. Collect all flags to activate the exit areas.
- New box obstacles that you can ram to move, or even shoot to move (Bunker system only)
- New barrel obstacles that you cant move, and when you shoot then, they explode with massive force doing you damage if you are too close. (bunker system only)
- New artwork for projectiles and rockets, including new cool player projectile trails.
- New targeting system for when in 3rd person mode, to help with aiming.
- Player ranks and stats page (like in Turret Wars)
