Tank warfare on your handheld

Handheld game developer Astraware has released My Little Tank, an arcade style game for Palm OS devices, Windows Mobile/Pocket PC PDAs, and Windows Mobile Smartphones. From the Astraware product page:

Through 60 action-packed levels you must shoot enemy tanks, defend your base, and destroy enemy radar stations and bases. You will encounter a range of hostile terrains including snow, swamp, plains and deserts. As levels progress, tougher enemies will appear that require more than one shot or more effective weapons.

As you carry out each mission a range of powerups will appear to aid your progress including Smart Bombs that destroy all tanks in the vicinity; Life bonuses to regenerate your tank; Speed to make your tank go faster; Invincibility to protect your tank against the enemy; Weapons upgrades; and Freeze bonuses to halt the enemy tanks and make them easier to blast!

Who'd have thought playing with tanks could be so much fun? You can even choose what colour tank to play with!

My Little Tank features:
  • 60 exciting missions
  • 5 different enemy tank types
  • 6 types of power up to aid in your battle
  • Destroyable scenery!
  • 7 customizable tank colors (Registered users only)
  • Supports hi-res (320x320) and hi-res+ (320x480 and 480x320) Palm OS® devices
  • Supports native QVGA (240x320), VGA (480x640) in both portrait and landscape, and even "square screen" (240x240) Windows Mobile® for Pocket PC handhelds
  • Supports standard Windows Mobile® for Smartphone resolution (176x220)
