100 Must-Buy PlayStation Mobile Games: 27. Super Tank Poker

100 Best PlayStation Mobile Games 027 - Super Tank Poker

I will absolutely, positively flatly refuse to make any mention of the fact that Super Tank Poker bears any resemblance whatsoever to Nintendo’s Advance Wars. Any similarities between the games must be in my imagination… allegedly. Okay, so that’s the legal bit out of the way, you’ve no doubt guessed what type of Real Time Strategy game that Super Tank Poker is but Thomas Hopper has – as always – managed to add his own unique twist to the game.

The game plays over a series of combat arenas spanning a large island and progressing through the game involves taking on tougher and tougher missions, each one dealing with more and more adversaries. What makes Super Tank Poker different is the combat itself. Once your units are in attacking range, the game shifts to both sides playing a hand of poker, and the chips that are in play represent your units of health at risk. The more chips you bet, the more damage (potentially) that you deal against your opponent and that you can potentially recover for the attacking unit. While it’s not the strongest poker game around, the battles really do add a whole new dimension to the RTS genre and makes the game feel fresh and stand out from the crowd.
