Artillery

Requested by reader Jimmy, this is a turn based artillery game in the style of Scorched Earth.

Description: There are 4 tanks on the map. The game is turn-based, the tanks shoot one after another. A random tank starts the game. When the turn of your tank  comes, set the angle with th3 4 and 6 keys and the power with the 2 and 8 keys and shoot with the 5 key. Pay attention to the wind, its direction and speed change every turn. Try to eliminate the 3 other tanks before they eliminate you.

This game seems OK, if a little slow moving. There are a few quirks, you have to play all four tanks yourself unless you use the 0 key option.  Although the wind varies there’s no on screen indication of it’s direction and speed.  The same with the power setting, there’s no way to tell what it’s set at.

Keys:

1/3 – scroll the screen, 7/9 – scroll the screen by one half of the screen,
2/8 – set the power of the shot, 4/6 – set the angle of the barrel, 5 – fire.
Press 0 to let the AI control your tank for 1 turn.

  1. Pretty sweet game! Doesn’t seem slow at all on my i290, probably just has a slow algorithm for calculating position’s.
    It is very hard though, not just to see your ‘bullet’, but judging wind speed. Well worth it’s size though!
