In a nutshell, Scorched 3D is a turn-based strategy game that places
you in a 3D environment and gives you a mountain of weapons. Your objective?
Kill the other players and NPCs who are equally armed and armoured.
This would be easy, if it wasn't for the fact that you can't actually move
This means that you have to work out the exact trajectory of your shots if
you want to hit your targets, using previous shots to work out where to aim.
What makes Scorched 3D interesting are the little details. There are
a variety of custom options to tinker with and after each round you can buy new
missiles and defences with money pillaged from your enemies, adding a whole new
level to the strategy.
As Scorched 3D is compatible with the internet and local area
networks, it's possible to play against other fans across the world.
The controls take a while to learn, and you may find yourself scratching your
head even after multiple hours of play.
The game does get infuriating when some shots become impossible to make
without spending several turns blasting away at the landscape.
