    I recently got both games and noticed there very similar. Each one has thing I like about and dislike. Which one is better?

    iCombat is way better imo

    Way better controls. And just more fun to play. Simple, basic and fun.

    Icombat:
    likes: it's just like the classic , it's straight simple and to the point, the AI is way better the tank-o-box, and the graphic are fun
    Dislikes: needs direction pad, maybe different tanks you can choose from, tank upgrades, that's about it

    Tank-O-box:
    Likes: really good graphics, has d pad,
    Dislikes: AI is dumb, die to easy, the d pad is to streched, no upgrades, idk

    As I said both are very similar but I find that icombat is and will be the better game. What do u think

    Yeah but you have to drive on a grid, very UN-tank like.

    I haven't played Tank-o-Box, but I do know with iCombat, the controls seem pretty smooth and the targeting works well. Looking at the video for Tank-o-Box, the grid set-up just doesn't look right, and my guess is that it makes it difficult to turn and shoot especially if you need to face an enemy and shoot quickly.

    iCombat needs better calibration for when you're lying in bed.
    TankOBox grid system is terrible, meant for old phones with direction pads. Also the graphics are poor.

    Still no great tank game yet.

    Well I own iCombat and thought it was a pretty good game. Don't own Tank-O-Box though but from the screenshots, I think iCombat is a win here.

    TankOBox graphics are some of the most dusty, rudimentry graphics I've seen. Everything is a wash of gray. No artstyle to save it either.

    Tank-o-box just has a rather primitive control scheme and movement style - movement along straight lines and turns at 90 degree angles only. It's really a graphically updated version of old NES/gameboy game Battlecity.

    Haha no but I'm thinking it must be really good to beat tank-O-box lol. Is it worth looking at? I saw some pictures, it looked bland to me. Like, a big sand pit.
