Just a simple A for left movement and D for right movement, and mouse for aim would be perfect. But that is the only con I see from this game. Other than that I find it greatly enjoyable.

Hilarious.......worth it if you get the PopCap huge set of like 30 games. Would NOT spend 4.99 on this by itself though.

If you enjoy suvival shooter games here you go. You are basicly on the only soldier out on the field and must help pervail through a war. You must drive your tank for 9 maps with only 2 live against who knows how many planes. As most players know tanks have a major dis-avantage against plane but per map boss you defeat you get better upgrades to your tank. But be aware that the farther you get the harder your enemies are. You even run into planes dropping WARHEADS AT YOU.
I beat this game once but then there a major turn. All bosses were copies so you must do another 9 maps which I cant beat.

As for the dislikes :( The music is always the same each map. Orginally made for Windows Xp and below. I use a Windows 8 and the game can barely keep up with my video card. Upgrades get boring after a while. And onyl other mode than Campaign is Survival. But over all I give this game a 8.5 out of 10. Sorry PopCap Plant vs. Zombies still is the best : )

I've played the 360 version and it's a pretty fun game there. In this version, however, you can no longer move in one direction and shoot in another.

These controls break the game in the higher levels when there are ground targets that take many hits to destroy. Since you cannot target them without moving in that direction, you just ram into them while shooting. Horribe, horrible design choice.

This game has been out for a while now, so lets face it, if it were going to be fixed it would have been by now. Avoid this game.

This game is Nostalgic. It reminds me of the days when I used to go down to the Council Library and play for an hour (as you had 1 hour timeslots). I loved this game as a kid, and not just this 1, but many other Popcap titles. Popcap Games are really good singleplayer games, probably some of the best offline games I've played, highly recommend them!

This game was challenging personal score 7/10


Bad points about the game
No Multi Player or Online
Cannot make the game easy to play to start off with

But overall all this game was addictive and fun to play

And it also has Survival mode High Scores And can't foget Mission Mode
This should last you hours of gameplay
Soundtrack can be annoying but a very nice game people should find this game challenging

Thank you Steam for putting this game on Steam.

Those negative reviews are utterly misleading. Back in 2006, I've played this Heavy Weapon Deluxe since the first release. There is no XBOX platform. Only PC version.

To be honest, let me start with both comparisons. What you get in:

PC Platform Console Platform (PS2/XBOX)
Number of Players Single Single / Co-op
Movement Mouse Controller
How-To-Move Point left or right, vehicle will follow your mouse cursor. Stop the vehicle's movement by pointing your cursor vertically, right above your vehicle OR just point the vehicle. Hold left click to fire, right click to nuke. Left joystick to shoot, right joystick to move. Vehicle WILL NOT MOVE if you don't move your right joystick. Nuke using on assigned button.

Consoles version are enhanced version, specially made for 2-player game compared to PC. For PC it's 2006 game, PopCap don't upgrade to co-op version. Ignore the negative reviews, they never play PC version before. This game on Steam version is still solid.

I bought this for $1.00 one of the holiday sales and must have sank 4 hours into it or more. Very fun and very simple. Its like a fun arcade game to spend time playing while waiting for stuff. I played it awhile the wife would get dressed for work in the morning.

Is the tank the weapon, or are your weapons the weapon, and if so why the singular naming for a plural set of objects? Is Heavy Weapon Deluxe really a screed about the division of self from society and how we are in truth a greater, unperceived whole, meaning our identity is beyond our control and indeed an artificial construct we bolt together piecemeal from the social experience of those with whom we identify?

Dammit, Sartre, stop making me think and just give me Peggle 2 already.

All Pop Cap's games are just perfect. Easy to learn, "plug & play" but, with increasing difficulty and clear instructions before every new thing to learn. Intense rythm, you are always clicking the mouse, no time to rest. Original, they can be based on anything else but they do their own way and with outstanding imagination. The right difficulty at the right time, to maintain the interest. Variated play modes. Ridiculous simple controls, usually just the mouse and their two buttons, some times the arrows pad is also neeced but, that's all. Very good music and sound effects....
Well, if you already played Zuma, you know what I mean but, they have other interesting titles and this is one of them.
Highly recommeded for casual tmes, when you are in a hurry and want to play just a bit or, for that "in between big games" time.
AWESOME ARCADE!
