Parents need to know that Squishy Tank is a tile-matching puzzle game with themes of war and violence, though the battles portrayed are cartoonlike and quite mild. Cute little sentient tanks are blown to smithereens in puffs of black and white smoke as players tap groups of like-colored tiles on the lower screen. The most graphic moment comes late in the story mode when a faint red splotch -- presumably blood -- can be seen on one tank’s bandage. Many of the game’s jokes riff on famous lines from old war movies like Apocalypse Now and Full Metal Jacket, but they’ve been thoroughly scrubbed of the sort of adult language for which these movies are known. The worst words in the game are insults like “fatbody” and “worm,” which are directed at the squishy tanks by their R. Lee Ermy-like drill sergeant.
