This well-designed app is a ton of fun if you like arena tank shooters! Be sure to do the short tutorials to make sure you’re using the commands as efficiently as possible. A combination of voice and air tap moves the tank and fires.
Only drawback: the arena tends to be larger than the field of view of the user, so aiming is sometimes a bit difficult.
The graphics and 3D models are great, and the curved menus are a neat twist.
