Scorch - A Scorched Earth clone gets an early preview for the Atari XL/XE

Due to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine we will not be showing the loading screen above

This game might not look like much, with it's bare backgrounds and tiny coloured objects, but this is actually a preview Atari XL/XE release, that comes across very much like Scorched Tanks on the Amiga and the MS-DOS game Scorched Earth. Developed by pirx and as a multiplayer game with up to 2 players so far, your ultimate goal is to wipe out your opponent by working out the correct trajectory that your Baby Missile flies through the air and hits dead on target!



According to the Wikipedia for the original game : Scorched Earth is one of many games in the genre of "turn-based artillery games". Such games are among the earliest computer games, with versions existing for mainframes with only teletype output. Scorched Earth, with a plethora of weapon types and power-ups, is considered the modern archetype of its format. Also all weapons are shown with tracers which allow the player to more accurately adjust the trajectory on their next turn!
