The Roof Is On Fire
When I was just a lad in the mid 90s I used to love playing a game called Scorched Earth. It was a basic 2D game where both players had tanks. You took turns shooting each other over a varied set of terrains. My friends and I would spend hours lobbing various types of ammunition at each other. Needless to say, it was a complete and utter gas to play.
The other day I was perusing the games on Sourceforge and found something called Scorched3D. I thought to myself, "That sounds familiar." Sure enough, it was a remake of my favorite classic ;-). This thing has gotten a serious makeover. For one, you can play the game with players across the Internet. You can also play the game across a LAN. Best of all, the game has a 3D makeover and a TON more weapons to play with.
If you like simple and fun games do yourself a favor and check this game out.
