Bug Splatting Twin Stick Shooter Star Tank Advances Onto Android
Following in the footsteps of such extraterrestrial insectoid crushing media as Starship Troopers comes a flashy new twin stick shooter about exterminating space bugs from the comfort of an armored cockpit called Star Tank. Created by indie developer Ormos Apps, Star Tank is an arcade style shoot ’em up where players blast away at hordes of glowing creepy crawlies across exotic planetoids in order to harvest their remains as fuel for their spacecraft. Players must make use of both their reflexes and wits if they want to survive the various enemy types they’ll encounter as they progress further and further into the campaign.
Players move their tank about each stage using either touch controls or a gamepad as they collect power ups and energy dropped from fallen enemies which they’ll need to bring back to their space ship in order to fuel its tank. There are a bunch of different weapon pickups for players to acquire and they can even mix and match two at a time for maximum destructive capabilities. Multiple enemy bug types require differing tactics to overcome such as mimic bugs that gain the characteristics of the ammo they are shot with. Shoot ’em up fans looking for a fun and flashy arcade experience will enjoy Star Tank.
Star Tank is available for $2.99 on Google Play.
