Scorched Earth online DOS game is an arcade shareware artillery video game, that can be single-player or multiplayer and it is part of the homonymous franchise. The game can be played against up to nine other players, that can be computer-controlled, offered by the programme, or your own friends. If all the ‘human’ players in the match are eliminated, the computer ones can still play and fight each other, creating a zero-player game. The gameplay has a huge range of different weapons (which can be upgraded with tracers that allow the player to more accurately adjust the trajectory) and situations, in which you can set your match, that can be customized by the player. During the game, you can also see text messages from the computer, before firing or dying.
