Yes, that's something left to solve. I'm thinking about 
reviveing that tank or moving it out of the way, probably 
depending on the difficulty level.

Hm, never thought about that before. The only problem would be, 
how to push them arround corners?

That's what I'm already planing. When a tank is hit, it's 
shield gets disabled for a while and some powerup can be picked 
up. If you don't pick it up fast enough, the shield gets 
enabled again and the tank can be revived. Some possible 
powerups I have thought about are fuel, a damage repair kit, 
more speed (~50%) and a "megabomb". 

The helicopter can survive multiple hits but those cost energy 
and randomly cause some damage (slower speed, a fuel leak, much 
slower gun shots and, if possible, a broken radar, so you can't 
see tanks behind walls anymore). The megabombs kills all tanks 
in some range and helps you escaping when trapped.


Have fun!
