Charred Earth 1.0

I made a thing:

This is a makecode arcade game inspired by the 90’s shareware hit Scorched Earth. There’s plenty of things I can add, but I think it’s already a fun, playable game.


B: swap between view panning and tank control mode
A: fire!

View panning:
U/D/L/R: move the camera… find the other tank!

Tank control:
L/R: adjust the turret angle
U/D: adjust the power of your shot

Note: the game begins in view panning mode, but after the first shot will stay in tank control mode until you explicitly swap back.

I hope you enjoy!


This is great! I love the random level placement and how the view panning works.

Nice use of the arcade-sprite-data extension too! FYI @peli


@darzu make sure to tag posts…


this is so cool, also how did you get the image text extension? that could be helpful!

this is great, thanks

The image text extension is just something I wrote in that game. Sorry, I didn’t publish the extension anywhere (I didn’t put much thought into its design; I just did the minimum for what I needed).

A couple of days ago I posted this thread Text sprite extension where @richard shared a slightly different extension that might be useful for you, though.
