Heavy Weapon and Mighty Rodent, meet Terav. Featuring minimalistic graphics but excellent gameplay, it's quite surprising that this game is actually better than the two earlier offerings from PopCap and Jagged Blade Software.

Enemy sprites are made out of the fairly standard shapes but uses a wide array of attack patterns. You control a tank with the ability to jump a short distance into the air, which does add a unique gameplay element because the ground is rarely flat.

The difficulty is just right, meaning that with enough practice and tries some progress can actually be made. There are plenty of power-ups to collect and bonuses to unlock, making this a real contender for game of the week.
