v0.17 Released

This update has been delayed due to my wife giving birth to our 4th child! However between sleeping and burping I've managed to add a few updates as promised on the last post. Namely turret control ( via swiping the screen) and also, due to the number of people complaining about orientation not working for them,  D-pad movement control via the touch screen. You can enable the D-pad using the options screen which is available when you press menu.

The tank now stops moving while you're aiming with the turret, although you can shoot from the hip on the move if you like. (Note no multi-touch if you're using the D-PAD, just let go of the D-PAD and then hit the fire button).

There is also a different game type - "Hold the Ring" where you have to stay inside the ring for 60 seconds without the enemy entering the ring to win. If the other side hold the ring for 60 seconds, you loose; or you can just kill all the other player's tanks.

Hopefully the next release will have a few more feature additions such as alternative weapon types, and more of an objective based mission. Also a few more terrains. I'll be working on making the tanks on your side a bit more cooperative. At the moment they seem to just want to shoot each other or you ;)

Again, please keep the feedback coming, and remember if you put your e-mail address in, then I will respond to your concerns.

I'm hoping our graphics artist gets back from holiday soon, so we can start to work on the textures and controls. The development ones are wearing a bit thin....
