Tank On - Modern Defense is a very dynamic game for Windows Phone, in which you will keep the weapon at the ready. The essence of the game is that you have to defend your base from the attack of the representatives of an extraterrestrial civilization. The game has almost nothing in common with the of Tower Defense genre. It is rather a scrolling horizontal shooter where it cannot do without indiscriminate firing at the enemy forces.
The first waves of the enemy will be very modest, and to destroy them you won't have to work hard despite the fact that your weapons are far from perfect. After the defeat of several enemy squads you will be able to upgrade your gun a little, and it is very timely because an enemy boss will come to the battlefield in the near future. Externally, the bosses do not differ from ordinary soldiers but can be recognized by the blue coloring (the other enemies are green).
With each new level the range of enemy equipment will increase, and while at first levels your base started to be shot at only when they got close to it, in the future there will increasingly appear soldiers who can shoot from the middle of the playing field. It will take a little more time before the enemy's heavy equipment comes out. It damages your base much stronger and begins to shoot with its appearance on the battlefield.
Upgrade and additional weaponry purchaseOf course, your progress also will not stand still, and you will be able to afford to increase the power of existing weapons and their firing rate, as well as to purchase other ammunition and start upgrading them. Apart from the main gun, at your disposal there will be few super bombs of various actions. Some can destroy enemies more efficiently while others allow you to freeze the enemy's equipment for a short while. Next to the buttons that control the bombs, a shield may soon appear that makes your base invincible for a while.
All superweaponry has the ability to recover after use, but it depends on your resources the number of which is indicated as a blue band at the bottom of the screen. It will take a little time, and you will be able to set more guns to the base automatically choosing a goal and destroying the enemy as easily as you are. No doubt, the game will not be without losses, but don't despair even if they are permanent. That's because even at that time you earn money with which will be able to upgrade your weapons. To upgrade some guns there will be required gold, but it will only come in case of victories and in small quantities.
ResumeGraphics, sound and controlling in Tank ON - Modern DefenderThe graphics in the game are quite decent though at times reminiscent of the 80s videogame console. The sound is great despite the fact that it consists essentially of sounds of blasting enemy's equipment. That's because each piece of machinery explodes each in different ways, and it also creates some variety in the gameplay. Controlling in the game is performed by using a single finger. What place is touched will be where your turret shoot. You can download Tank On - Modern Defense for free and find yourself a great time-killer.
