Lil Tanks reviews and comments

Translated by

Small unpretentious little shmup. Here you do not play a ship as usual but rather an elevated tank (thx Captain obvious...). The graphics are Mimis and the correct playability. One feels becoming more and more powerful with upgradeable equipment: over the levels you will acquire XP that will allow you to unlock new weapons to be more powerful at the level of artillery. Unfortunately you are obliged to have the best weapons to finish the last levels, which forces you to grinder as the first Korean MMORPG came... At the shmup level in itself there are some gaps... The Hitbox of your tank is not clearly defined, it sometimes happens that it is impossible to avoid an enemy shot, and if we add to that the leeeeeeeeeeeeenttttttteur of your tank, we arrive at disaster scenarios quickly while everything was leaving well. Another thing, bosses do not have identical patterns to each part... Not very practical to learn how to avoid them and kill them. Special mention to the last boss who never made me the same pattern 2 times... I had to retry my luck a lot of times, until I had the simplest patterne and finally could kill him. So we feel that the dévs have tried to artificially lengthen the duration with this story of XP and unpredictable bosses and it's a shame. Nevertheless the game remains pleasant in small sessions, and can occupy you a few hours in solo or co-op.

Product received for free "Lil Tanks" Horizontal scrolling shooter with greenhouse experience. In This arcade we manage the prototype of a powerful tank, which must defeat hordes of aliens. About The game: 3 modes are Available: Campaign – We perform several missions with cleanup all over the world. Infinite-try to survive as long as possible against the endless hordes of aliens. Training on the bosses-hone mastery, fighting with the bosses. "Lil Tanks" Is an unusual system of upgrades. We'll have to grind to pump our tank. For each killed enemy we are given experience. When The experience scale is filled, we raise the level and get an upgrade. All in the game 11 improvements. They are unlocked in turn, you cannot choose an improvement. But the upgrades and earned experience are permanent, they are not taken away after death. This system allows you to pump a green tank and pass levels that are difficult to overcome. We Will have to farm the experience on the first missions to move on. In addition to improvements to US available drop-down bonuses. The Tank can pick up several weapons on the battlefield. You can only Use what you picked up last. You cannot Switch weapons in this game. To This arsenal is added constantly following your tank-companion and the ability to use the shield and laser, which can be used constantly (they replenish energy in time). About Local Multiplayer: The Game supports local multiplayer. You Can play together on one computer (shared screen without splitting), but you will need two controllers. All Local multiplayer is that a small companion tank will manage your friend, not the computer. The game is easier To pass. You can exchange bonuses With your partner during the battle. Bottom Line: The Graphics are nice, though under the oldschool, but without cutting eyes pixels. The Management is simple and obedient. Fully supported controller. There are achievements, there is an opportunity to play together at one computer (you need to have two controllers). Everything is Done soundly and pretty. The Price is quite adequate. I liked the Game. A Fascinating, moderately complex arcade game. All difficulties are solved by Grinda experience and twisting the tank. Fans of arcades and scroll-shooters recommend to the collection! The Review was written for group Reviews Online. You can Read other reviews here.
