Towards the end of last year, we had the chance to play Smash Tanks! at the Yorkshire Games Festival. The game was a blast — in more ways than one — and released in December to glowing praise on iOS. Now those on Android devices can get in on the friend-destroying AR fun.
Smash Tanks! turns any flat surface into a battleground, where you take it in turns to smash tanks against those of your real or virtual opponent. It functions a bit like billiards, letting you bounce tanks off walls to reach out-of-the-way spots. The physicality of its AR controls immerse you in the fun of it: tanks careering across the arena, buildings toppling down.
We were impressed with how fun even our short experience was, so undoubtedly since several months of updates, Smash Tanks! will be a great game for Android users to pick up. Whether playing on your own or with a friend, it is perhaps the kind of AR we always wanted when the dream first became reality.
