You admire the jagged landscape while evaluating your options. You could MIRV the guy on the ridge over there, or even better, if you place your shot right, you might be able to Death's Head your way straight to victory. Assuming you don't frag yourself in the process. Decisions, decisions. Welcome to Scorched Earth, my friend.
Scorched Earth was one of the first artillery games that I ever really enjoyed because it is chock full of offensive and defensive options. This makes Scorched Earth one of the deepest and most complex artillery games I have ever played. Now it's abandonware, and you can get it free here.
BTW, if you like Scorched Earth, I highly recommend Worms: Armageddon.
