Tanks A Lot

I've always wanted to make a tank game. Its on my bucket list. Its been fun making it. Getting close so thought I would share a taste. I simplified the controls for mobile. Powerups, air support, voice overs. Its turning out ok.

    Nice work! - There is a lot going on there from planes to trains, boats. Its shaping up very nicely.

    Is it a set path for each level? Or does the player control the tanks movement?

    Look forward to seeing more.

    Best,

    It's a set path. Initially it was a joystick but I really didn't like how it played on device. So I simplified it. It's a shooter disguised as a tank game.

    The joystick took time to master. I'm finding people give a game 7 seconds. If they can't figure it out by then it's deleted.

    Testers so far figure it out quickly and play 45-92 seconds. They replay 3 times.

    For me, 60 seconds of play and 3 replays before delete is success.

    I'm not really a tank kind of gamer, but how do your shots reload? Or is it infinite? How do you control what direction you are aiming? Looks well put together though

    Controls are a work in progress. Testers hated the system I had. Three buttons.

    Tap on left of screen turns counter clockwise. Right side clockwise. Center third of screen fire. But I have an auto fire on release of turn buttons. On device the testers were correct it didn't work well. I moved buttons around now and so far testers like it.

    Bullets are limited but there are pick ups along the way......
