The vast majority of combat vehicles on the modern battlefield are vulnerable to an rpg attack.

Recently changed in this version:
a few bug fixes for challenges
- game review section
- user to user challenges
please note that challenges are still a little buggy especially w/o WIFI. If you get stuck in challenge mode (you can't start a normal game), a device restart will clear the problem. If you need more coins, email me and include your Scoreloop player ID. I haven't yet figured out how to let users earn in-game currency, such as a coin per game, etc to use later for a challenge.
