Very fun game, possibly rigged
This game is tons of fun, but there are some questionable practices in design. (1) The final prize spinner in hard mode is clearly rigged. I have likely completed 100 hard mode courses, and not once have I received a top tier prize (ONLY ever receiving 20 gems, or a free resurrect). (2) A small handful of power ups (x2 shot, barrage, hp+, crit, attack speed) are actually useful. Most of the rest (and especially your tank’s special abilities) are virtually counterproductive, as they fail to raise your dps or survivability in any meaningful way. (3) The inability to use two sentinels at the same time is ridiculous. There is no point to invest resources into two of them, when only one can be active at a time. Delete the second slot, or make them both active at the same time. (4) most of the tanks are too slow to outrun the reg dog boss’ flamethrower attack. Assault and Striker are barely fast enough to do so, and you’ll still likely get hit just barely for massive damage. Reduce the dog boss’ hit box to give a better chance to players.
Archero Rip-off, worse than it appears
This game is a ripoff of Archero, clearly, but that’s the reason I play it. It actually does a good job of feeling like an interesting alternative at first, as all the different tanks have very different plays styles, and gameplay is smooth. Additionally you get timed chests all the time. Seems great right. Nope, as you play and progress it becomes obvious there is absolutely no progression without paying money. You cannot merge low level gear into Epic. Epics are only available from a chest you rarely get to open. There are two tiers above epic that require merging epics, and after 3 weeks of playing I only have 1 Legendary item (Ammo) and that item barely increased my power anyway. I am officially at a paywall and done. Beyond these fundamental faults, their advertising is super glitchy. I have crashed on more ads in this game than I can count, each time either losing progression or just wasting my own time for no reward. It probably deserves 1 star for its fault, but as I said, it was fun for a while, so it gets a 2nd star.
You know what...
Of course everyone is gonna call it an Archero clone, even I would myself. It is not a bad thing to me though, I been playing it since it came out (Archero), and I am truly sick of Habby’s bull crap. It feels fresh and familiar at the same time, which is good since obviously at one point I did like Archero and didn’t find it tedious. Hopefully you are lucky enough to have gotten here without Archero tainting your opinion of what seems to be a pretty cool game in it’s own right.
Edit: some of these levels and bosses are so difficult for me I don’t even think leveling up my tanks or equipment could get me through them. The biggest factor for me though and is going to cause a deletion of this game, is too many of the tanks can only be obtained by chance, this has ruined too many games for me and I absolutely refuse to waste my time with games that do it. Well it was fun while it lasted... at least with Archero though often overpriced, you knew for sure you were getting what you wanted. You might as well just flush your money down the toilet opening chests for things in games.

This game is fine but I have problems with hard mode. 1. The level design. This bothers me because most of the ways the levels are designed guarantee for you to be hit especially since most of the levels are littered with those robots that deal splash damage. 2. The absurd about of damage. This is also bothersome because in hard mode, the enemies deal like half of your health with one attack. Then there are three bosses that insta kill you basically, but have to hit you one more time to kill you. I have 7000 max hp and got insta killed at a boss so I think the damage is to high. This last one is in general, 3. The bee things follow you too perfectly. They are basically impossible to escape if there are multiple in a room. I mean it’s ok to have enemies home at you, but not to perfectly to the point where you can’t escape. Take the room with 4 of those bees as an example, you are guaranteed to get hit at least once for 2000 damage.
If you like Archero and Tanks.....
I played ALOT of Archero. I’ve also played knockoffs of it. To top it off, I don’t play games I have to pay for. This game is quite enjoyable. The play is fast and fun, graphics are clean, and the reward system seems to be fair to those who just want a game to play for free. Obviously some games will get quite hard later on, and paying $$ is the easy way out. I’ll see how this one goes, but even if I only play for a while, it’s definitely worth the download.
Have you played Archero?

Then you’ll love this one. Basically the same but with Tanks, better gameplay imo, and abilities and power ups actually have percentages that tell you how much damage or chance increase goes up. The ability for each tank to have charged moves that doesn’t punish you for moving or repositioning is wonderful. Great game, definitely a good one to piddle around with
Good Game! Although targeting/lock-on system is suspect!
So far the challenge of the game has not become overbearing yet, keep in mind that I'm writing this as I'm entering the 6th or so stage of the game.
Graphics are colorful and varied, although not as much as the game this is going to be compared to the most, Archero. Overall the game is beautiful and plays well.
One thing I must say is that the lock on system is very suspect at times. There are instances where the enemies will go through the walls and hide on the other side and your tank will aim at them and shoot at the wall. This is very problematic especially when dealing with hectic hoards of enemies.
Edit: Chapter 7 on normal has one of the most difficult bosses in the game. Very hard to defeat as the boss changes it's direction on a dime, leaves a trail of bullets that scatter in all directions, and even splits into two bosses once it's health reaches halfway. Atrocious level design, especially for a difficulty gap that spontaneous and absurd!
More than one side gun?
This game is truly fun and is a great time killer. However im having a problem with the side turrets. It says you can equip 2 different turrets but when I equip them only the one on the right shows up and contributes to my game. Am i not seeing something or doing something wrong? Thats the only problem i have with the game. Other than that its worth a download.
As people have said, it has taken the art style of Archero. This doesn’t bother me too much because it’s something else to play and pass the time now. What is bothering me and forcing me to write this is because of a bug/glitch on Level 5, The Forgotten City, Stage 1. I go into the first room to fight everything and all the enemies die except for one, the health bar is at 0 and moving around, horizontally, on my screen where my tank is.
I hope y’all fix this issue soon because with that, I can’t progress further and it’s kinda annoying.
Best tank gameEver!!!!!
Yeah I don’t really write reviews on video games because a lot of the mobile games are glitchy and paid play so far experiencing this game I can definitely say it is not what you would expect from a mobile tank game that controls offer such fluidity when moving endgame tanks it allows me to complete access and it’s fun plain and simple to the core fun
