Lil Tanks Update #3

Hello all, we've got another update for you today!

This patch includes the following changes:

  • Fixed acid ooze hitbox, making it much smaller and easier to avoid.
  • Recolored some stage backgrounds to help enemies and projectiles stand out more clearly.
  • Removed three random tank bomb powerups from Wayne/Kim and created a brand new special for them.
  • Adjusted time for "Survivor" Achievement and corresponding Mod Unlock from 10 minutes to 5 minutes.

(These tweaks will also be reflected in the demo version as well.)

Reviews

“The game offers a refinement of the genre which sits nicely between challenging and accessible.”
92% – Pixel Pop Network

“Indie dev Lead Money Games knows ‘90s arcades inside and out, and the result is this glorious shoot ’em up with impeccable pixel graphics, animation, and music.”
Gaming Cypher

“Everything summed up, Lil Tanks is a beautifully crafted reimagination of the shoot ’em ups of old. Everything from its charming old school animations to the fabulously tortuous difficulty is exactly what fans of the genre love.”
