Maybe, but which density is more difficult? I think, different 
densities change the type of strategy, but not the overall 
difficulty. So it's hard to combine them. 

See attached version 0.21, where you can change the density 
with the left difficulty switch. There are a only a few small 
other changes in this version:
- improved fuel display (but still no function behind)
- hitting tanks from the back has become a bit more tolerant
- larger tank missiles
- some minor bugfixes	
- ...

Yes, it will slightly increase (mainly due to more speed) from 
maze to maze. E.g. when you start at difficulty 1, after a few 
mazes the difficulty reaches the starting value of 2 and so on. 
With each major difficulty level some extra obstacle will be 
added or changed (e.g. number of tanks (3 or 4), reviving 
tanks, helicopter damage, harmful debris etc.)

Yup, that's what I will do. Maybe not only one main game, but 
between 3 and 9 different ones (with different difficulties, 
and maze densities). 

Have fun!
