MiniTank - 4.0.0

OK, so, there are these blob things*, and they seem to like you. They will come for you. Get away as fast as you can! You can't beat this game; just stay alive as long as you can!
*No one made me a better image, so we go with this one.

Cool:) But could it be faster? After 30 min it becomes boring... Light effect is great!

*Mouth gaping* Gosh this is way improved. Nice work. The badguys are the same though.. maybe I'll draw you some :D One thing. Get a longer music loop. Keep up the good work!

Neat! The game plays very well. Kind of hard, and the badguys look weird. Try changing them into evil looking robots or something ;-) Overall its pretty fun! Things to add:

1) Maybe add camera scrolling
2) Make the badguys more interesting
3) More weapons!!!
4) More levels!!!

This game has some great possibilities. Keep up the good work :)

Dude great game! Very original and very polished! Amazing particles like usual :D. I love the boost effect in missiles and the light effect around tank, it's very cool too. Excellent work buddy keep it up. Just one suggestion, improve the resolution of the movement degrees... i mean, try to get a finest control for the tank when you turn around. Nothing else, overall excellent game (and very hard too)
