What's New

Bug fixes.

This update brings our Online functions from a third party Backend as a Service supported framework to a BlitWise maintained AWS hosted server infrastructure. This should provide greater flexibility in the future, and players should not see any disruption in game play or functionality. However, some errors may occur with a change of this magnitude. We thank you for your patience and ask that you report any bugs, issues, or errors to tech support using the in game support button.

Note from the author:

I have been writing artillery games since 1993. I created Pocket Tanks in 2001, and thanks to the many loyal fans, it is still in active development to this very day. Please join me in my quest to make Pocket Tanks a classic artillery game that stands the test of time. Thanks to all who have supported BlitWise over the years.
