Product Description
EVAC HD
One wave down, infinite waves to go
Achtung Panzer!

From the legendary T-34 to today's fearsome M-1 Abrams, tanks remain the kings of the battlefield. Now you can climb into the driver's hatch of one of these beasts to test your armor-plated mettle in Tank Hero, the mobile megahit from Clapfoot Games. If you were a fan of the Atari classic Tank, Tank Hero will be your next addiction.

EVAC HD
Defeat successive waves to earn new weapons
Love Me, Love My Tank

Tank Hero features very smooth controls, so you'll be wreaking havoc in your tank in no time. You have two driving control options: a fully directional pad that you can place on either the left or right corner of the screen, and swipe and tap that allows you to swipe your finger in the direction you want your tank to move. To fire your shells, simply tap on the target you want to hit. This firing system makes your tank a highly accurate killer. Your shells also bounce off the walls, so definitely take advantage of any ricochet effects. Your tank has armor tough enough to withstand two hits from the average tank shell.

Once you have multiple weapons, you can toggle them in combat
Know Thy Enemy

Tank Hero's action takes place in a battle arena. You'll always be outnumbered, facing a variety of tanks intent on your destruction. Oh, and their shells can bounce off walls, too:

  • Blue is a basic tank with an average speed and cannon
  • Light Green is faster, also armed with an average cannon
  • Orange shoots triple shells, so one direct hit kills your tank
  • Red is a slower tank with a deadly howitzer that is best avoided
  • Grey fires off obnoxious heat-seeking shells, so you better be nimble
Campaign and Survival

Tank Hero comes in two game modes: Campaign and Survival. In Campaign mode, you fight your way from board to board. To really rack up the points, don't just go into the arena guns blazing. You get extra points for preserving your lives and using as few shots as possible. As you go up in levels, you can unlock new boards. Survival Mode will simply throw waves of tanks at you. As you survive each wave, you get credits to purchase upgraded guns.

Tank Hero is a relatively simple game, yet its sharp graphics and dramatic martial music makes it feel like a full-on console game. The game requires OpenGL 3D graphics and multi-touch if you want the game's full effects. So, are you ready to rumble?

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite tank battle game January 28, 2012
Verified Purchase
If you've played "Tank Hero" on iOS devices, it's pretty much the same game. If you haven't played it before, if you like fast-paced shoot 'em ups, you'll love Tank Hero. I've played other tank battle games, but Tank Hero is tops for fast-paced, nail-biting action.

In Tank Hero, it's your tank against the enemy, and as in real warfare, the odds are often stacked against you. The enemy tanks are controlled by a pretty good AI, and if you're not quick, you're dead. The enemy has several different types of tanks, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. It's usually not the best strategy to go head-to-head with the enemy, so stay behind walls as much as you can, popping out just long enough to fire off a few quick shots, then retreating. Also, ricochet your shots off the walls - sometimes that's the best way to take out an enemy tank. For me, the most dreaded enemy tanks are the red ones. Unlike the other tanks, their guns can lob shells over the walls and nail you anywhere, so you have to keep moving.

Options allow you to turn the music and sound effects on or off. But why would you want to do that! If you're proud of your scores, you can share them on Feint, Facebook, or Twitter. So far, my scores aren't nearly good enough to share.

Kudos to the developer for putting in some very nice play options. You can set the "camera" to zone in on your tank, or you can have it fixed. My preference is for fixed, since it gives an overhead view of the entire playing field. Another option is for the input type, which controls how you move and shoot. There are three options here, and you need to try each of them to see which one is best for you. I chose "Swipe and Tap," but you may prefer one of the other two.

I played "Tank Hero" on a Kindle Fire HD.

It is a great game, but absolutely terrible that they would market to kids and put in such inappropriate pop-up ads.

1.0 out of 5 stars wonderful game but ads are terrible January 26, 2012
Verified Purchase
I agree... showing ads for men who want women are not good for something a child could install because the women being shown are enticing pictures. This app needs a rating of not E but teen probably. Be warned as a parent... :(

1.0 out of 5 stars Inappropriate ads January 27, 2012
Verified Purchase
This game can not be shared with kids as the ads are completely inappropriate for them. Oddlly enough, this game would mostly appeal to kids.

The developer needs to rethink the business model.
