This game is so good! This reminds me of the original Wii Sports tank game. Brings a lot of nostalgia and I think this was done even better!

Keep working on it! :)


may i please personaly thank you for adding the global cursor, i feel like i wasn't the only one who asked for this but thanks for the addition

(i love this game)

Thank you! I’m really glad you enjoy the game!! Consider leaving a review here on itch.io or on steam, it goes a long way for a solo indie dev like me :-)

Wow, I ended up making a local multiplayer tank game too, but mine is just 1v1 and 3rd person. This looks great, I would try it if my friends ever agree to play this at any point.


Really cute game! Curious if the creator of this  game is the same person who made the Tiny Tanks game from Roblox.

Hey! Sadly I am not the creator of Tiny Tanks from Roblox but I've checked out that game and It's total awesome! Definitely captures the vibe well :-)

Thanks for letting me know!


cool game!

i have only one problem with this, the reticle doesn't connect to the mouse, it follows but its not on top of the mouse pointer

I'm still debating on how to approach the Gamepad vs KBM problem. The game may have online player vs player content. If I had the reticle follow the mouse exactly that may give KBM players an advantage against the Gamepad players. But that's a small thing, idk what I'll do yet. 

so i did try the game with a controller to get a feel for those players and i understand why there isn't a mouse cursor reticle, thing but then i have something else (no im not being stubborn) maybe a toggleable line scope sight type thing, so that is assessable for both types

(plase dont hate me)

I was actually rereading some comments the other day and I had the same idea. Why not have an unlocked reticle as an option for the campaign. It makes perfect sense. I agree with you 100%


Hey DEV I enjoyed this game because it brings me back to the WII Play Tanks game. Although not being exactly a like I do however enjoy the mechanics, not really a big fan of the jumping part but everything else I love. I do have a problem with how I try to go to the settings it constantly goes back to the menu so I basically can't test out what my PC can handle. Scrolling through the menu is a bit confusing and difficult.

Hi! Thank you for the feedback, and I'm glad you enjoyed the game. In the final game there is going to be a "Modifier" that allows you to play the game in "Class Mode", no jumping, 1 health, things are slowed down a bit. Sounds like it'd be right up your alley. 

The menus are being worked on, I know they're kinda tough to handle right now. 


Thank you for your response, I'll keep my eye out for the full game and will give a review again once it's out! Good-luck on your full release!


Wii play, do you?

amazing game reminds me of wii tanks just one suggestion aiming is a bit annoying and I would say to close to the tank maybe on the easy difficulty loosen up the aiming

I am actively working on a better solution for Key board and mouse. The new system should be in the game very soon. I know it's a bit brutal right now. The game is much easier to play on gamepad

(1 edit) (+1)

I agree, I liked the Wii game setup of moving and aiming independently. I'd rather have the mouse cursor always be visible on screen, so the aiming sight not always stick so close to the tank, and the keyboard to move around. Also, the explosion animation (both enemy and player) can have a bit more *oomph, like maybe show it longer or something.

Other then that, this looks pretty dope :)

I’ve slowly but surely learning my way around special effects design. Definitely on my todo list to revamp the explosion. Glad you liked the game!

uh wdym bro 6  Dollers For A Demo?


That is a mistake, the demo is and will be 100% free always. I will fix this. 

I managed to pick up the game, can I have the Steam key, I thought I had the full version


I got stuck on this screen, my tank is not loaded and I am unable to leave the level. 

Looking into the issue now. Thank you for letting me know!

Allright thanks, I hope  you find it.


Mario combined with animal crossing.

Hit the nail on the head


Holy shit, it's wii play tanks!!!


With cool physics 😎

Looking into this now, Will get back to you once it's solved.

Looking into this now, Will get back to you once it's solved.

""wii play, do you?" , is that a threat?" 

-Scott the woz


this concept is giving me some vibes from wii play's tank


it is heavily inspired by that game - I hope you enjoyed it!

quite challenging but also fun

- Thanks for making this tho :)


Great game!

i have put it on my wishlist on steam. 

Please make the tutorial restartable.

Had to restart the game because i connected the controller after i started the game.

Thank you for the feedback, Duly noted!

nice game i have no complaints


Very fun game! Simple mechanics, easy to pick up, and just enough of a challenge to be addictive without being frustrating.

TTwo things to admit for those who don't watch the video: 1. I chose hard mode because *insert good reason later* and 2. I think half of the video is level 1-6. It should be a testimint to the game that I was stuck playing that level over and over but having such a great time anyways that I kept pushing the end of the video just to see it through.

I kept launching myself somehow, I'm hoping I can review the footage and find out because it's so funny and fun to do that I want to learn to do it on purpose.

Other than that, I got a little lost in the menu, but that might be my fault, I don't use my ps4 controller that often so was never fully sure what button I was clicking. The gameplay is great and a total blast, and I want to gather some friends to play it with me!

Cant wait for the full release! Thanks for the game!


Very glad you enjoyed the game, Thank you for playing!

Is this game inspired by the Wii Tanks? I loved to play that as a kid! Your game is VERY frustrating and sometimes lags, but that is just the demo version. However, your game was quite quick and smooth (I managed to get 200 FPS on my bad graphics card) and was overall fun to play. Can't wait for the official release!


um..thank you for making the game free for now. i just feel bad claim it without paying. 😅

i hope your game can inspire other Developer to make games :D

The full game is coming to steam in the next few months, give it a Wishlist, that's more then enough! https://store.steampowered.com/app/1345440/Toy_Tanks/#game_area_purchase

this looks awesome just from this page

Thank you! Took me a while to get everything right. I’m happy I could convey the game’s vibe with just the page itself. 

There is an issue with the new update. Me and another person tried downloading the game, but crashed while playing. The main tank does not spawn.

Thank you for letting me know I will look into this now. What platform are you on?

I tried it on Windows

I recently updated the windows version. I couldn’t replicate the bug myself when I tried. It may be a good idea to just download the newest version and try again. If it still doesn’t work, message me back with more details on what exactly you did to make the bug occur. I will do my very best to fix this for you. 

I tried playing the game but the window was too big for my screen, and I couldn't see the bottom of the screen. I also can't resize the window.

Hi the minimum window size is 1280x720, what's the resolution of your monitor? You should be able to press the "ESC" key on the splashscreen to get to the options menu to change the resolution. 

Thanks, I didn't realise you could do that. The game's really fun and addicting :)

Glad to hear your enjoying it! 


Hi Wii Tanks.

In all seriousness this looks nice, I may have to check this out later.

Heavily inspired by that awesome game! But the physics really change the formula!


nice game

Is the photoshop UI available?

Hi! I don't know what you mean by this, Maybe email me and I can help: rodneyluckhurst@gmail.com

The UI.. Is there a photoshop file for it.. The UI image shown above.


Holy Cheez.....This is AMAZING....I wish I could code this well

Never say never! I've been practicing for over 5 years now, Keep at it and you will get there!!


Played a disgusting amount of hours of Wii Tanks when I was younger, so I felt it I had to give it a shot when I stumbled across the game. Let me tell you this game is addicting. From just playing the first few levels I was hooked. The physics of the game were very interesting and often led to some hilarious gameplay. Overall the levels are challenging and offer tons of replay value in trying to 100% the game and setting new times. Can't wait to see where this game goes when it is finally released. Thanks for giving me a piece of my childhood back!!! 

Glad you enjoyed it!


Pretty awesome game, has a lot of cool mechanics and satisfying gameplay, also fun enemy variety and the dashing is VERY satisfying mechanic, 10/10 good game

Love the support!!


very fun take on the wii tanks genre!!! very physics based and slightly unfair but that just makes it even better!!!!! its really funny when you see your tank fly across the screen or even make other tanks fly away. you even have 4 tanks to choose from!! it also has really fun dash mechanics and is overall a really good game!!

Physics = Fun! Haha, thank you for playing.
