"Scorched 3D is a modernization of the classic DOS game Scorched Earth. It's a simple turn-based artillery game and a real-time strategy game in which players can counter each other's weapons with creative accessories, shields, and tactics.

"Game play is easy: jump into your tank, aim the turret, adjust the power and trajectory, select a weapon, and shoot. Weapons and accessories lend themselves to different tactics depending on the situation and opposition. After each round you can buy new weapons and accessories with the prize money you won during the round, or keep the money to gain interest. Weapon choice and money management play large parts in game strategy.

"Gavin Camp, the game's developer, used to play Scorched Earth with a group of friends at university. He rediscovered it years later on a boring airplane flight, and began thinking about creating a modern take on it, with 3-D graphics, but true to the original feel."
