Scorched Earth is a artillery video game in which tanks do turn-based battle in two-dimensional terrain, with each player adjusting the angle and power of their tank turret before each shot. Scorched Earth, with a plethora of weapon types and power-ups, is considered the modern archetype of "turn-based artillery games". The game has a wide variety of customization options from gravity and wind to money and meteorite showers, and a similarly large pool of different payloads, allowing for a large amount of entirely different situations.
