Tank Titans HD iPad Game Review: This Game Tanked

[app id=”875002271″]

Tank Titans HD is an universal iPad app designed by Reece Campbell / Campbell Tech Ltd. You can blow up tons of stuff in this game…if the pop-ups don’t drive you mad first.

Having played this freebie on both an iPad and an iPhone, I have to say I enjoyed the iPad experience a bit more. Size does matter, and with this type of game, you really want a bigger screen.

One thing I absolutely hated about this game were the pop-up ads. I had two pop-ups hit me before I even started playing, and that aggressive use of ads was a real turn-off. I also had a pop-up dialogue window ask me if I wanted to upgrade my tank in the in-game store before I had even played the game for 4 minutes. Three annoying pop-ups before I’ve even finished a single round of gameplay is not a great way to let players get immersed in the world of the game.

There were a few other minor things I disliked about this game. There were some typos, and some of the early game screens that give you game instructions flashed by too quickly to fully take in. I wish I could have perused them at my leisure. I also had the game crash on me a couple of times.

The one stellar part of this game was the graphics. They were really nice, but I do wish that the environments had a greater level of realism when you blow stuff up.

Overall, skip this game for now. It has the potential to be great fun, but the pop-ups, crashes, and generally slapdash nature of the interface make it practically unplayable in its current state. It just feels like a cash grab, and that’s a real bummer. For a game that billed itself as “realistic,” this was kind of a disappointment.
