Tank Recon 3D now available for BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 and Torch 9810/9850/9860

Tank Recon 3D

Tank Recon 3D first popped up over a year ago for the BlackBerry Storm2 and after a long overdue update is now available for the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930, Torch 9810 and Torch 9850/9860. This first person tank shooter features real-time 3D graphics that make it one of the most fun games on the platform.

Piloting your new advanced tank, code named Alpha, you will be shooting it out with various units such as tanks, planes, AT guns and more. Fire your main cannon and watch as the enemy explodes into pieces. Use your guided missiles to bring down enemy planes or anything else that needs blowing up!

Tank Recon 3D allows you to choose between Mission and Survival mode. Jump right into the action with Survival mode and see how long you can survive. The longer you last the harder the enemy units become. When you're done, submit your high score to the Internet for bragging rights.

Play Story Mode to go on various missions that will ultimately decide whether you defeat the Evil Hepion forces or explode trying. Playing through the missions takes time and is no easy task but fortunately the game supports saving your progress at any point. If you do manage to complete the missions, try them again but this time choose Hard or even Mental!

I've been rocking Tank Recon 3D on my Bold 9930 for a few days now and I absolutely love it. The touchscreen controls are easy and super responsive and the game features loads of replay value. A new version for the BlackBerry Playbook should be on the way very soon as well. Hit the link below for more info.

I picked it up a couple days ago as well. It does play very nice on my 9930. It plays much faster then it did on my Storm 2. Defitely a big thumbs up from me!

I was excited for a minute, but went to App World and no dice for my 9930 on Verizon. Its ok, I'm used to it...

My mistake. I changed it on App World to include the 9930. I will likely take some time to work through the system though.

I appreciate your efforts. I downloaded the game a year ago for my Storm 2, but couldn't deal with the lack of processing power. Played it for a few minutes on a road trip and then gave up on it. I'll definitely give it another go.

That shouldn't be the case at all. In fact I went out of my way to make that exact case not happen and I'm really not happy at all that this is the case.

If you look at the reviews on App World I have a few zero stars due to Verizon breaking ALL 3D games with OS v5.0.0.1015 on Storm 2. RIM has never fixed it and left my customers and myself to blow in the wind. I considered making a new product that was for OS7 so I could ditch those reviews but I felt people that bought the original should get the new update for free. So I spent another week trimming the game down to work on the old Storm 2 and sucked it up on the bad reviews.

All I can say is that I am very sorry and will do what I can to fix it if at all possible.

Hey LoneDwarf
Any chance of making Freddy Jump OS7 compatible? I loved it on my original Storm! Keep up the great work!!

There is a good chance I will do this one as it's a good game to play on the new Bold. Thank you for your support.

This is a great game but it just kicks my butt. I made it all the way to the last tower on the first level and got ambushed by dozens of tanks and other evil things. LOL. Needless to say I failed to advance to the next level.
