Scorched Earth like games...

I'm a brand new iPod Touch owner and the amount of apps and games available was overwhelming at first. However, thanks to sites like this I have found some really good games (iBlast Moki, Hero of Sparta).

I don't know how many of you are familiar with an older game called Scorched Earth. I'm looking for something similar for my iPod Touch. I have found iShoot and Cannon Challenge, but was wondering if there are other similar and possibly better options available.

You should check out Star Hogs and Kil.A.Ton

Pocket Tanks is the most similar game to Scorched Earth... you might have played the PC version before if you're a fan of the genre. Lots of people prefer KILL.A.TON and Star Hogs, but I find Pocket Tanks to be the most faithful evolution of the genre, and it also has the best variety of weapons, which is really what I look for in artillery games.

okay right now its between ishoot and maybe pocket tanks but with updates kil a ton will be the best artillery type game.

If you want something similar but out there, try worms or star hogs

If you want a full 3D version there is Turret Wars:



Lite Version: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=329856336&mt=8

I haven't personally played it but there is a lite version to try and some good comments on the forum so you should get a good idea from them.
