Can't play the game

continue button is not working so the game is not starting..




Platform: PC

Yes I love it!

This is a great game especially with deluxe! The only bad thing is that it is pretty expensive for just a game. You get a good amount of weapons but they are pretty repetitive.

Cross Platform Troubles

I love the game and have played between my android and an iphone without problems. But when I tried playing with my surface and my android the terrain would not form correctly. Most of the game was spent re-calculating the terrain and it was different on both platforms after that. My tank was left floating in the air and a shot hit terrain that was invisible on my android but not the surface. A bug that needs to be fixed but other than that the game is playable for now. I hope that it will be fixed quickly.

Playing this game online and blowing opponents up all over the world is fairly satisfying. I'm semi-addicted. Love the strategy involved in choosing weapons and using them in a particular order to maximize destruction! Muhahaha..

Wont open

It will not open on my laptop after I download it. This really sucks cuz it worked for a while and it was awesome. When we tried to upgrade to the deluxe version, that's when things went haywire. :(
