    Hi, I'm new here. Sorry if this topic was already posted, I couldn't find anything about this. :eek:

    I'm wondering, iShoot or Pocket Tanks? iShoot has a weapon editor, so I'm leaning more towards iShoot (cheaper too). But, I don't know if I should buy it yet. Help me?

    I have iShoot, it's great and I love making weapons. However the lite version of Pocket Tanks was great so i'm waiting on a sale of some sort for that.

    Ishoot is really fun, especially the weapons editor.I have a lot of fun experimenting with it The soundtrack is great too and it even has an online mode!

    There are lite versions of each that you could try out.

    I've tried both lite versions, but it just doesn't give the real feel of the game.
    That's why I need people that have the full game tell me why they like iShoot or Pocket Tanks better. :)

    They both have lite versions, I suggest trying those out! Best way to make up your own mind.

    Having said that I have iShoot and played the free Pocket Tanks and I really enjoyed Pocket Tanks a bit more. I like that its based on points and not health, it makes things much more interesting and longer too. I think the variety in weapons is much more in depth. And yes while iShoot has a weapon editor, I dont think it can match Pocket Tanks vast array of weapons and what they do that add strategy to the game.

    And I've only played the free version which only has like 20 weapons.

    Good point! I think the lite versions are good to check the gameplay.

    lol ya I question that line of his, Pock Tanks free version gives you plenty of feel of the game, the only thing is more weapons in full version and prob a few more options I think.

    iShoot has the weapon editor which prob isnt in the lite but again the feel of the game as you say is in both lite versions so I really dont understand that statement.

    I think some people just cant make up their own minds like in real life they prefer to follow the pack and not their own instincts.

    I love picking items at the beginning of Pocket Tanks. It's like picking teams for a pickup football game.

    Having tried both, I prefer Pocket Tanks because of the wider array of weapons (105), and the focus on points instead of health. The look and feel is another consideration because of the cartoony graphics which I prefer over iShoot. It really comes down to personal preference.

    On that note, you may also want to check out Iron Sight which is a 3D version of these type of artillery, turn-based strategy games.

    It certainly seems like it, a ton of options, a ton of weapons each quite different. Ultimately I would say play those lite versions again til you think which one you would like best not thinking about their prices. If you think Pocket Tanks is better then yes its worth the price...

    And judging by the devs comments on these forums it doesnt appear he will be lowering the price anytime soon and will add more weapons but only when 3.0 comes out for a additional price. And its 5 dollars not 4 but yes its prob worth it if you're really into these type of games.

    'Iron Sights' is good, its like ishoot or pocket tanks but in 3D. It is in full 3d with excellent graphics, and has online multiplayer, and its only 59p ($0.99)! Also there is 'SoldierAnts' which is exactly like worms with the randomly generated, destructable, 2D environments.:)

    iron sight is not like pocket tank or ishoot at all...destructible environment are vital in strategy, plus the hundred choices of weapons in pocket tank..iron sight has..missiles..and some trees or buildings that can block attacks..thats all ive seen so far, not that its not a good game i like it, but its different for sure
