Review Tank Masters

Brandon Girod
8.5Excellent
Educates you on the mobilized weaponry in WWII, features a very interactive discovery system, sports and intuitive interface
The in-app purchase system is really odd, the info you get isn't too in-depth an can be found free elsewhere
Tank Master Android is a really interesting app because it’s maybe one of the first games on the Play Store that I would say is one of those “not a game” apps. The core functionality of the game is to educate “players” about the various types of tanks and mobilized weaponry that were used in WWII from the various major players, but they do so in a way to engage the player.
You start off with a few “elements” and the idea is that you want to mix these elements to create reactions. An element is the result of a reaction. In game, however, elements are things like turrets, blueprints, body chassis, inventors, etc. In other words, you can think of them as parts that come together to create something, and in this case the creating process is the reaction and you want to eventually construct tanks.
Learning about tanks is basically the entirety of this game, though. For some reason the developers included some in-game purchases that allow you to buy leads or new elements. Considering that combining two elements together is really the only interaction here, I don’t see how this is a viable tactic and I wonder why anyone would purchase something to begin with. So far only the USSR stuff is unlocked and there are tons of elements to find. You can purchase 20 for a dollar, so you’d be spending an unbelievable amount of money when you can find all of this information for free online. Albeit the interaction level might be a bit diminished by comparison.
I like the idea behind this app a lot. It’s fun discovering new elements and I enjoy reading up about the gear used in WWII. That said, the vast majority of the game isn’t in the app yet and the prices for the in-game purchases are pretty silly overall.

Intuitive interface, original gameplay

Tank Masters for Android is a unique game of combining different elements to build up new elements of increasing complexity. Start with engineers and design plans, then work up through different kinds of wheels, chassis, turrets and engines. Finally, combine the new elements to make different kinds of tanks. Then have fun expanding your fleet of tanks by combining them with different weapons, engineers, and so on.
You can only combine certain elements of course. This plays kind of like a card game, where you build up a stack of cards by combining different ones. There's interesting descriptions for all the different technologies and people. I didn't feel like I really retained any historical information from it though. Unless you're a real tank geek, you are not going to really be able to figure out what should be combined with what; though of course you can make educated guesses. It's interesting to see how different technologies were built on each other in this area.
Tank Masters focuses on Soviet tanks for the time being, but there are more countries' tanks on the way. I really loved the concept of the game, even though I'm not all that interested in military technology. I found revealing new parts to be fun and addictive.
