Survival shooters are all over the place in the app store with a different one featured on the Top 25 almost every few months. The latest one out there to receive some hype is Great Tank War. The game presents a military-themed survival shooter that will take you through various levels of difficulty and have you fight many different enemies.

The game is controlled in the same way all survival shooters seem to do. Players use two joysticks, one to shoot and one to move. A unique approach the game decided to take is launching missiles. By letting go of the right joystick, your tank will launch the large projectile. This was both a fun idea and probably one of the more annoying parts of the game. It caused many deaths when I wasn’t able to shoot fast due to my finger being off the joystick. The graphics are good in the game but the upgrade system was definitely too pricey and made it a pain to continue through the game.

Overall, the game wasn’t the best of its type that I’ve played but it was still a fun game to play through. It got extremely hard in the later levels so expect some heavy challenges. Check it out.
