My craft-em-up side-scrolling retro-shooter has been released on the Google Play store and the whole game is available now to play for free.
You can download it right now from here.
These early days are really important for a free-to-play game like Shuttle Quest so if you have an Android device I hope you’ll boot it up and download the game.
After all the hard work, the tiny pixel art tanks, the triumphant SNES style music and the endless games of poker – it’s finally available for you to buy on the PlayStation Store.
Boot up that Vita or Xperia device and load the PSN store. Under the PlayStation Mobile section you should find a brand new TACS Game creation waiting for you.
If you can’t see it right away check out the ‘Latest’ tab as some regions have not updated their stores yet.
Thanks for playing and as always I’m interested to hear what you think.
I’m delighted to say that ‘Super Tank Poker’ has been approved for release on PSM. It may even be accessible from the PSM store as early as next Wednesday. So then, on this occasion, is the first trailer for the game.
From the PSM store:
Turn based tactics combined with tactical poker! Position your tanks, pick your targets and place your bets!
*Fight through more than 30 missions in Story Mode.
*Play a variety of mission types.
*Battle against 9 generals, each with a unique play-style.
*Five tank types including rocket tanks and mobile command vehicles.
*Customize and replay any battle in Skirmish Mode.
I’m looking forward to hearing what you think of the game when it finally pops onto the PSM store (perhaps next week).
This may give you a clue as to the work I’ve been doing this past week.
The Super Tank Poker World Map
There are 31 levels in the main game. This is the world in which you travel to discover these levels and progress the story mode. Each of the 31 levels can also be played in the Skirmish mode.
There are grassy areas, muddy constructions, cities, snowy areas, islands, quarries, deserts, pipelines, camps and walled structures. I don’t think I’ve made a game with such a diverse set of levels and this world map reflects that.
I’ve never wanted to hang a world map on my wall more than I do now. Super Tank Poker is really coming on.
I’m pleased to be able to say that Super Tank Poker is the game I’ve been working on for the past couple of months. It’s still a little way of being completed but I’ve nailed down most of what the game will be and so I am comfortable showing you a few screens from the game.
The game itself is a fusion of traditional turn based tactics game and a poker game. You must position your tanks on the battlefield to gain the advantage and then do combat with cards. Each tank has it’s own pool of chips which represents that tanks health and ability to do battle.
The game has a large world map to explore and many battles to take part in against many different opponents all of whom have different strengths, weaknesses and play styles.
Super Tank Poker will be releasing first on PSM.
I hope for you to be enjoying Super Tank Poker soon.

I’m pleased to be able to say that Shuttle Quest 2000 has been submitted for PSM review today. If all goes well you will be able to play the game in 2-3 weeks. I am going to take a short break from smashing my head against a keyboard and go away for a while.
When I come back I will be right back at the grindstone with some new projects. Some more PSM might be on the cards and there may be some other new things too.
I hope you’re looking forward to Shuttle Quest 2000! Here are some screen shots from the final version of the game:
