“We had a lot of fun playing and working on this game and even more on designing our own challenging maps, which you can find as bonuses at the end of Free Battle mode. With this contest we wanted to share this experience with our fellow fans of the Human Tanks, Charge! series.” says Ozhan Sen, Graphics and Marketing Lead.
