Here is a concept for a game I quickly made:

100 SCREEN 7
110 G=9.8/10:'gravitation
120 W=1.5:'wind
130 F=2:'force/power behind shot
140 Y=200:'start coords Y-pos
150 PSET (10,200)
160 A$=INPUT$(1)
170 FOR I=0 TO512 STEP W
180 LINE-(I,Y/500),15
181 F=F-G
190 Y=Y-F
200 'G=(G*G)
201 X=X+10
210 NEXT
100 SCREEN 7
110 G=9.6/10
120 W=-.4
130 F=2
140 Y=100
150 PSET (0,Y)
160 A$=INPUT$(1)
170 FOR I=0 TO512 STEP W
180 LINE-(I,Y),15
181 F=F-G
190 Y=Y-F
191 IF Y>210 THEN F=F*-1
200 'G=(G*G)
201 X=X+10
210 NEXT

The ultimate goal is to have 2 players shooting at eachothers tanks. Who first destroys the other wins Smile

It roughly based on this amiga game

Hi !
It's my first post to MSX.org !

Concerning Scortched Tank, if I remember correctly, it was programmed in Basic on Amiga (Amos). It is maybe possible to find the source code since I believe this game is a DP game. Anyway it could be cool to port it to the MSX because it is a very entertaining game !

a DP game eh? (PD you mean, as in Public Domain)
Well having the tank doing a DP (deep or double penetration) would've been cool tho Smile

Yes, indeed PD, here in France we call it "Domaine Public" so it's DP is the french spelling,
sorry there has been a bug somewhere between my brain and my hands while I was
typing ! Wink
