A tribute to the DOS classic Scorched Earth with a twist… The old turned based game play was scrapped for a (hopefully) more frantic real time experience. Blast your opponent into the lava before they can deliver to you a similar fate.

Special thanks to Adrian Degraffenreidt for numerous coding and design contributions.


If you are playing by yourself then you're doing it wrong.

Start new game: ENTER

Player 1 Controls
Move Cannon: A & D
Change Power: W & S
Scroll through weapons: 1 & 2
Teleport: C
Fire: Spacebar

Player 2 Controls
Move Cannon: Left & Right arrow
Change Power: Up & Down arrow
Scroll through weapons: < &="">
Teleport: ‘
Fire: /

Game play notes: Firing stronger weapons leaves you with a longer timeout between shots. Each player gets two teleports per game.

The larger terrains seem to give some slight frame lag for me so if it bugs you just hit enter a few times till you get a more agreeable landscape.
