Back from vacation (lots more on that soon) and did a little work on the game today.
Got the wind working, and explosions cause damage now. Cleaned up the display a little. I’m trying to get through it without looking at any other Scorched Earth clones (which is kind of stupid since it’s already a clone anyhow, but whatever).
Now there’s lots of non-fun stuff left like menus to start and pause the game, detecting end-of-game state, and so on. Probably lots of stuff I haven’t thought of yet too.
I hope to press on to the bitter end though, so I have a finished game when I am done.
