Tank Domination is an iOS/Android MMO tank battle game. While playing, I couldn’t help comparing it to World of Tanks, an MMO for PC. In both games, you are placed into one of two teams, and the objective is to either completely annihilate your foe, or capture his “flag”, which in TD is squatting and surviving in an enemy zone for a few minutes.
Also, similar to WOT, there’s a short training mission with an obnoxious drill sergeant. There’s also the hangar where you choose the killing machine, upgrade it, and buy equipment and ammo before launching into battle.
Unlike the WW2 theme of WOT, the vehicles in Tank Domination are modern Russian, American or Chinese. As a free to play, you start with the cheapies and then unlock other vehicles by buying them either with real money or your time. If you play long enough and advance your level (capped at level 30), you’ll eventually unlock all vehicles.
I’m not high on the virtual joystick, but it seems to work okay in TD. The action is slow enough and the targeting doesn’t require pinpoint accuracy. It isn’t always easy to maneuver, however, and I often found myself “coupling” with an enemy tank. That is, while dueling with an enemy tank at close range, I’d get stuck with him and we’d do-se-do until one of us managed to swing our gun on the other. It’s something that wouldn’t happen with easier controls. And if your hands get sweaty, that’s asking for an AP round where the sun don’t shine.
It’s also more difficult to hide than in WOT, which makes for a better gameplay as more teamwork and maneuver is required than just hiding and sniping. The problem is that it’s difficult to communicate with your team on a tablet so it needs to be worked out with visual cues like swinging the turret or just proactively watching your mates’ flanks. But in almost all the games I played, every tank did his own thing.
This is a fun game. It’s easy and quick and it’s on your tablet. Just have to make sure your hands stay dry.
