World War I is still raging!

The latest from the makers of the Top 10 Paid hit Gratuitous Space Battles, Gratuitous Tank Battles is a real-time strategy/TD hybrid with online elements and customizable units. You can take the role of the defender or the attacker in a series of top-down explodey battles. A built-in map editor allows easy sharing of custom maps and defensive challenges with other GTB players in a similar fashion to the challenge system in GTB's sister game, Gratuitous Space Battles.

GTB takes place in an alternate reality where the 'central powers' never surrender and the 'Great War' continues for two hundred years. Soldiers still fight in the trenches of the Somme, although rifles have (mostly) become laser rifles and giant armored mechs stride across no-man's land. The two great armies continue to fight with patriotic zeal and little memory of who Franz Ferdinand was and what happened to him. One thing is certain: It will all be over by Christmas 2114.


-- Play as attacker or defender on any map
-- Design your own unique units from a huge range of components
-- Use turrets, tanks, mechs, infantry and special command units
-- Integrated map editor to allow easy sharing of custom maps
-- Upload your maps and armies as online challenges for other players!

Review by Chef Mojo

Very Buggy - What I can play is great, but there are some serious problems. - El Alamein campaign doesn't work. Nothing but blue fuzz in place of the map. - Trying to use custom maps crashes GTB. Every single time. Game has great potential, but it's inexcusable putting this up to the App Store in such buggy condition.
