Endicott, New York– April 28th, 2008 - Blitwise Productions is pleased to announce the release of Pocket Tanks for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Pocket Tanks has long been a favorite downloadable game on the Windows and Mac platforms, and now is available in handheld form.

Pocket Tanks is the fast-paced artillery game that is simple to learn, and fun to master.

Select angle, power, and FIRE! There are many unique weapons including: Napalm, Firecrackers, Skippers, Cruisers, Tracers, Dirt Movers, and dozens more! This is the light-hearted game of heavy artillery for everyone.
