Retro Classic With 21st Century Edge - Vector Tanks Available Worldwide on the iPhone and iPod Touch!

Remember BattleZone from the early 80s? (if you're old enough...)

Chillingo Ltd, Europe's premier iPhone publisher has teamed up with Peter Hirschberg to deliver Vector Tanks - a 3D vector style shooter game on the iPhone and iPod Touch.

Vector Tanks is the brainchild of programmer extraordinaire Peter Hirschberg, the inventor of the translucent vector effect technique in the mid 1990s - a technique which quickly became ubiquitous in arcade emulation implementations allowing programmers to enhance the visual qualities of vector style arcade games.

"Vector Tanks began when I decided I wanted to design a game for the iPhone that used a control scheme of a thumb placed on either side of the touch screen. I immediately thought "tank game" due to the unique controls that most of the early tank games had in the arcades. The iPhone platform is extremely powerful and really allowed me to take the graphics and game design a lot farther than I was originally hoping for. My passion is creating games that preserve what was great about the early arcade games and also take advantage today's graphics hardware. If you do it right, you can take a retro gaming experience and add an extra level or two of energy to it without sullying the spirit of the gameplay." said Mr. Hirschberg.
