Editors' Review

by   / August 14, 2013

Battle City plays fine for an emulator, but its buggy controls and onslaught of ads don't do it any favors. This game was not as popular as other NAMCO arcade titles back in the days, but if you do remember it from your past, this download might appeal. However, most gamers probably won't be drawn in.

If you don't remember this game, that's because it was called Tank Battalion in most places. Like many other NAMCO shooters, your goal is to guide your tank through a stage full of obstacles to find and destroy the enemy tanks. It's helpful that the tanks are all on a loop, because the game's controls will sometimes misbehave, leaving your tank out of position. It doesn't help that the controls will take up most of the screen on a smaller phone. Add in the fact that a good portion of the screen is covered by a nasty ad and you have a game with too many obstacles outside of the gameplay to contend with. The final straw is that Battle City sends an ad that takes over the entire screen anytime you try to quit or advance stages.

Even if you remember and liked the old version, this app's presentation makes it hard to like the new incarnation. Battle City just doesn't have the polish or flare that most other Android emulators will give you. Instead, you'll just get finicky controls and more ads than you'd ever really want. We recommend you find another shooter to quench your thirst for arcade fun.

How can you tell if an Android app is safe?
