Wanted to add this new feature as a dedication to my Grandpa.
He bid farewell to this world in 2010, we miss him a lot and I owe a lot of my ‘logical thinking, view about life, even my love for technology, and a ton of stuff‘ to him; Today “May 1″ is his birthday.
One of his careers was as an air-force pilot .. I thought this would be a nice feature to relate to.
Lo and Behold!, Friendly Airstrike: Now you can summon/request a friendly airstrike in “Tank ‘Em Up!” to take down huge number of enemies in a tight/difficult situation. In my eyes, it’s more like he’s gonna be flying and taking down targets
How and when? You’ll know when you play the game

P.S: Did you know, once I wished him on his birthday and touched his feet as symbol of respect (Indian traditional Pranama), and he said “Krishna, I don’t believe in these norms. If you want to show respect to me, study well, grow up to be a good person and settle down in life. That’d be a gift and respect I’d like.”
I never wished him since then. That’s ~13 years ago. I didn’t understand what the hell he meant back then; I did however 4 years later… and “it is a precious value added to my life”.
P.S: The first game I ever played was also on his computer. It was called “MineSweeper” .. Did you know? It had a cheat code key combination that reveals which cells have mines’
