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 generic sounding title has so much more. The gameplay is like a arcade side scroller, I feel nostalgic playing this like I'm in an arcade in 1995. It has some very strong "Fight the Soviet Commie" overtones that has me laughing. This game is more like a time machine than anything else and is very fun.

Poor port from a game that is meant as a twin-stick shooter.

Played this on the XBox 360, and it excels there, while the simplified controls for this port make it less satisfying: mouse controls both movement and aim. Impossible to win the game this way.

Also no multiplayer, which was present in the XBox 360 version.

Very disappointing.

The game has a nice sense of humor about itself and doesn't take itself too seriously. There's a lot of stuff to blow up and the action can get pretty hectic. Some basic upgrade paths allow you to improve your tank between levels. But, it feels like a Flash game with mediocre controls. Controller support with dual analog sticks would make it more enjoyable for me. After playing the first few levels, it didn't grab me, and I had no desire to go back to it later. There are better shooters out there with better controls and deeper mechanics.

Heavy Weapon is yet another PopCap game with the working formula of a simple game principle getting harder by the level. In this case, it is navigating a tank with considerable arsenal through the war-torn levels of a rather... well... it's hard to really describe it.

I can only say that I have gotten stuck on the third level a little already, which is both embarrassing and still encouraging that I just try on and on.

Ah, I remember playing this in short spurts. I had a bit of fun shooting all the little planes and enemies that run around and shooting everything down with that mega-laser is pretty satisfying. It does, however, feel and play like a flash game, but a decent one. Overall, I think the $5 price point is fair for this bit of short shooting fun.

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.

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!

Controls are horrible. You aim with the mouse, and the tank also follows the mouse. You can't shoot and move in different directions. Xbox version is fun. This sucks.

This game probably won't entertain anyone that doesn't have nostalgia for it, and those like myself who do will resent the new pathetic and useless controls. The game also lacks any sense of appropriate resolution control and resembles the poorest of poor, half ♥♥♥ attempt of a port. Do not buy.
