An indie 3D game
iDatank, read I-the-tank for the record, can be considered somehow an adventure game, though it's more about a 3D environment puzzle with slight RPG touches (namely, upgrades). In advance, a lot of levels and, here's the best of it, a high replayability thanks to its multiple walkthroughs. However, keep aside standard conventionalisms, because it's an indie game in heart and guts. A lovely 3D indie game, for sure, but far from what we are used to call "casual gaming": controls will feel odd even clumsy, plot's about aliens and robots, and you may be left with a strange aftertaste when you end a level: have you overcome the evil genius who designed the game, has it all been mere luck ot was it what you would have expected for?
On the other hand, iDatank isn't a rosebed for gamers. There are few if any options regarding gameplay and game's performance should be improved further, as it likes to badly lag when you've been playing for a while. In a nutshell, all cards are on the table: this is an all-in game you may like it or not, but won't leave you cold even when it's set in outer space.
This is a three-dimensional story of the scout drone adventures. Yeah, the adventures are painted in sci-fi colors and filled by energy beams, plasma bolts and overheated weapons.
Our cybernetic hero will have to face a horde of extremely evil aliens. Of course, if all creatures in the Universe were kind and friendly - anything similar wouldn't happen. :)
iDaTank is the first and, I hope, not last indie release 'wink' 'wink'

"Despite the ambiguous name, iDaTank is a surprisingly in-depth adventure game with a thin, but adequate layer of RPG elements added on top to keep you coming back for more. Like the best rogue-likes, it works like crack in that you'll manage to inch further and further into space through each playthrough before suddenly realizing it's three in the morning." - Thorin Klosowski, Touch Arcade (4/5)
"This game is what AppaSnap was created for. This is a really quirky little game that is not mainstream, but appears to have enough depth to keep you coming back. It is slightly difficult to understand precisely what's going on at the beginning and the tutorial could be much easier to use, but stick with it and you'll find a brilliant little game in here. We like this!" - Appa Snap (9/10)
"iDaTank pulls together some great mechanics and blends them in an interesting way. The levels and enemies keep things interesting and the leveling up and upgradable weapons will keep players engaged. The game is much deeper than it seems at first glance and players will be pleasantly surprised." - Jason Wadsworth, 148 Apps (3.5/5.0)

Some lists where this application appears: Reviewed by Peter Warrior.
It's quite a simple app and some bad grammar but it's pretty fun. I think with some work it can be a pretty cool game that never ends
This is an okay game to play whilst passing time, but the interfacing is difficult to understand. I don't really see the point of the game, either, and I can't see myself playing it for more than half an hour without getting bored. Slightly disappointed with it.
The graphic's great, the controls are working good, no lagging and easy to learn. As another reviewer said, it's a "serene" game. I'll add arkadish and cutie monsters. It will keep many a person pinned to their phone, playing, but I think it's too repetitious (but that's why people play these games, isn't it?). Try for yourself—it's a free demo!
