I have always enjoyed tank games, and was delighted when I heard for the first time about Pocket Tanks. However, I was a little surprised to discover that this isn’t your ordinary tank game, but something else…
Launched on the Windows Store more than a year ago, the Pocket Tanks game is available for Windows 8 and Windows RT users which can download the full game for free (link at the end of the article). The game is already one of the most well-rated in the Windows Store, having received a good rating from more than 1000 votes. Designed for Windows 8 tablets, this game will definitely remind you of Worms with its style of play and the retro looks will give it a special look.
Pocket Tanks for Windows 8 is lots of fun
Actually, Pocket Tanks, the original game, has been released for Windows devices since 2007, but only in 2013 had it landed on the Windows Store. What’s really cool about it is that you can play against the computer, or against a friend, which is quite entertaining, I must tell you that. While the game is available as a free download, by purchasing the Deluxe upgrade, you will get more weapons, which is something you’ll be interested in, once you get bored of your current arsenal. So, I urge you now to go ahead and give it a try!
Pocket Tanks is the fast-paced artillery game that is simple to learn, and fun to master. The perfect quick game for friends and family, you’ll find yourself hooked for hours of play! 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! There are many unique weapons including: Napalm, Firecrackers, Skippers, Cruisers, Tracers, Dirt Movers, and dozens more! This is the light-hearted game of heavy artillery for everyone. Pocket Tanks has been loved by fans for over 10 years, who have downloaded the shareware version MILLIONS of times. But now, for the first time on Windows, you can try the game in high definition!
