This game was developed with the intention of being the most customizable already created. Two months of developing. Really addictive!
Use WASD to move and mouse to shoot.
Recently I released a beta testing version, really buggy. Now I'm working with a graphics designer, and this is a concept preview. Most of the bugs were fixed. Hope you enjoy better!

Made one turret, and it glitched out and wouldn't fire. Needs more work.

Can't wait for final edition!

Okay, so generally I only look at movies on Newgrounds. And when I play games, I never review them unless they're really horrendous and I want to be a jerk to the author. But since this game has been open in a tab on my laptop for a couple days, and since every minute of spare time I have I spend playing it (yes, it takes precedence over even Youtube) I had to have a say. I'm not sure exactly what it is about this game that draws me in, but I'll try to go over most things.
1: Ridiculous customizable features!
So, I'm not the kind of person to necessarily want these. In Oblivion, I change the race, face, and hair color instead of going over nose width and stuff. The point is that I'd usually rather play the game itself than fiddle with internal features. In this game, it's necessary to switch up weapons and skills on your tank. You can also build your own weapons, which I used to build a high-powered green cannon code-named "AWESOMESAUCE." I found this to be a rewarding addition to my tank. I actually enjoyed adding stuff on almost as much as...
2: Gameplay!
So, in this game you move your tank around and shoot other tanks. Occasionally one of two powerups will drop; health and X2 damage. You get bounties on most enemy tanks and a final monetary reward at the end of each level, with which you build up your tank more. Deceptively simple; endlessly addictive. You found a great formula and by keeping it simple, it sticks to the popular "easy to learn, impossible to master" formula-theory-thing.
3: Replayability!
I considered naming this section 2-subsection-A, but that's kind of overkill. Anyway, one word that comes to mind when thinking of the simple strategy-action style is "repetitive." And it is, but for me that wasn't really a turn off. It's as fun on level 20 as it is on level 2.
To make it a useful review, I gotta say any problems I found. Mothers, cover your children's ears. There was a major issue with lag even with low quality, but this may have been my laptop's fault. There were some minor bugs like the one mentioned below, where the tank moves continuously in one direction until you shoot. My biggest issue was the fact that when I backed to the sub-main-menu of "SELECT A SLOT" it made it impossible to reenter my account, thus stranding it at level twentysomething and forcing me to start a new one called "Radioface." This will hopefully be fixed in the final version.
5: Conclusion-section?
Oh, grammar. So, this game rocks and I really want you to make the next version so I can annoy my parents some more. It's one of my favorite flash games of all time. You're totally rad! Buy yourself a pizza!

Still buggy...

Can't load a saved game. It shows the saved game, but won't let me click on it.
Also getting a slowdown bug, which may or may not be related to the game.
Thirdly, encountered a bug from designing new weapons, where they would not display properly in their slot to the left after selling. Reloading the game seemed to fix that bug, but not the others.
