Pocket Tanks finally makes its Windows Phone debut

The classic artillery game Pocket Tanks, which was first released for the PC way back in 2001, recently, and very quietly, made its debut for Windows Phone devices. The game has also been available for some time on Windows 8.

The game, developed by Michael P. Welch of BlitWise Productions, is described like this:

"Bury your opponent in a mound of dirt, or assail him with a barrage of bullets. Visit the Weapon Shop before battle to arm yourself for the struggle, or try the Target Practice mode to learn all the weapons and the best tactics to win. Experience the thrill of launching volley after volley of powerful and fun weapons across the battlefield, using very simple controls. Select your angle, power, and FIRE! Your arsenal of unique and useful weapons includes: Napalm, Firecracker, Skipper, Cruiser, Dirt Mover, and dozens more! This is the light-hearted game of heavy artillery for everyone."

The free version of Pocket Tanks includes 35 weapons, along with support for Wi-Fi real time matches on a local network and online turn-based matches. You can also upgrade to the Deluxe version in the game for $4.99 that will remove its ads and throws in a bunch of new content:

  • 105 brand new weapons
  • Jump Jets for moving your tank around
  • Bouncy Dirt for creating reflective terrain
  • Digger for tunneling your tank underground
  • Support for weapon expansion packs, both paid and FREE!
