We are anxiously preparing for the big day. Touch Tanks has evolved into something we think is going to be very special. We will support online 4 and 6 player gameplay over 3G, WiFi and Edge. We use Apple hardware, Xserves, on the back end so the whole game is built on Apple tech.(We will have more on the server technology later.) We were shaking out our production hardware yesterday with some people playing from Germany and some people playing from the US . We think we will be able to support gameplay world wide based on what we have seen in terms of network latency.
In terms of gameplay we have added three power-ups, an optics power up, a health power-up and a cloaking power-up. We have also added the ability to upgrade your tank munitions and armor as your earn experience. You can deploy mines to set up defensive positions. Take a look at these gameplay screen shots to get an idea:
