JScorch is an open source effort to bring the classic tank battle game to modern computers using Java. More information on the project is here, while the latest screenshots show some of the progress in the game.
To get the latest Java archive of JScorch, go here (requires a fairly recent JRE).
We've got a new release of JScorch up and running, and it's one to make you all drool! Find it right here and have a blast, or two!
Here's what has been changed or added:
New Tank graphics
Animated shield graphics
Collisions with stuff
A new nifty sidebar to control your tank
Plus a menubar to let you change some preferences!
Everyone needs to be sure and check this release out as it's a winner!
I'm already hard at work on the next release, and here are some things to look forward too...
Clearing of land with explosions
Falling land and tanks
New Dirt based weapons
Maybe even some speed improvements for those on slower machines (Time to upgrade?)
Well that ought to keep everyone busy for a while, so check it out!
And as always, even though I am a Mad Fiend Java Hacker, some bugs to pop up from time to time. Be sure to use the project bug tracker at the SourceForge project page to help us out by reporting those pesky bugs. THANKS!
