Electric Adventures, The Games – Artillery Fire
This is the 23rd video in a new series where I am going to highlight each of my classic games I wrote for both the original Spectravideo and MSX computers.
In this video we move onto Program Pack IX and quite a fun two player game called Artillery Fire.

Based on both type in games from the early character based computers and also the Atari 2600 game, this game introduces a nice bit of maths to properly control the ballistics needed. It’s a two player game, but is still a bit of fun playing by yourself.
