Scorched Earth is a popular shareware artillery video game, which is a subgenre of strategy game. The game was developed in the DOS era, originally written by Wendell Hicken (using Borland C++ and Turbo Assembler), in which tanks do turn-based battle in two-dimensional terrain, with each player adjusting the angle and power of their tank turret before each shot.

Scanned Mountain Ranges!!
New sky: Cavern... actually this will be a landscape in the next version of Scorch
New sky: Pitch black... test your skills at night!
Team support: three kinds, to please all people!
Real timer delays - great for people with 486's and up.
New weapon: lasers.
New shield: SuperMag - tough as a heavy shield, pushes missiles like a deflector, and bounces away any that get through all that like a force shield. Yikes!
