Pocket Tanks Deluxe (Mac) Review

Earlier in May, I posted a review of Pocket Tanks Deluxe for iPhone.  We gave it a 9.9/10, and it still deserves that rating.  After playing the computer version, I am truly stunned. 
 The game has pretty much the same gameplay as the App Store, except for the fact that with all of the weapon packs, there are 230 unique weapons in the game!  There is a ton of lasting appeal, and it is just fantastic all around. There is a form of multiplayer on more than one computer, and also on the same computer.
The regular version of the game costs $15.99 (Link), and has multiple weapon packs available, some free, some $7.99 (Link). The collector's edition of the game, with all of the paid weapon packs except for two, is $44.99 + s&h for the boxed version, and $39.99 for the download version (Link). If you have a Mac, remember to click the link on each page to switch to purchasing for a Mac.

Here is a link to the review of the App Store version, which has roughly the same features:

Tons of Weapons
Easy controls
Different Modes
Incredibly fun!

Cost seems a bit much for expansion packs

Bottom Line: 
If you like to have fun, by yourself, or with a friend, buy Pocket Tanks.

Graphics: 4.9/5
Gameplay: 5/5
Controls: 4.9/5

Overall: 9.99/10
