What is it ?

Warheads is an original game looking like Scorched Earth, a popular game of 90's developed by Wendell Hicken. Today, I propose this remake for Wii.

"WarHeads : Scorched Earth" is a turn-based battle in two-dimensional random terrain, with each player adjusting the angle and power of their tank turret before each shot. Number of weapons and power-up give a tactical dimension to the game. The weather also impact the trajectory of missiles and create infinite situations.

  • Here it is ! Find here the files of WarHeads : Scorched Earth. This pre-version is playable but does not include all weapons (not programmed yet). The introduction is not activated and the sound track is a test.
  • Gameplay must be tuned, but this pre-version will allow you to make a good idea of what WarHeads : Scorched Earth will be.
  • I've past all this day trying to find a good track for intro... and I fail.
  • Any suggestion ? I listen to you !

  • I've finally open this page... To present my work, WarHeads : Scorched Earth. A remake of an existing game, from 90's. But I just discover how a wiki work, from the dark side...
  • I'm still search for all terms of licenses, for sounds, for images, and some common library... so I'm waiting before release the game and it's sources. Just wait for few days.
  • And as soon as the 1st version will be releasable, I will ask for Hbb publication...
