Genocide brings the concept of Scorched Earth to 3D. Up to four tanks, controlled by either humans or computer players of varying skill, are placed into a randomly generated landscape, ranging from desert islands to rainforests to a cratered moon surface to abstract shapes based on mathematical formulas. Then, those tanks start opening fire on each other. There is a great variety of ammunition, shell casings and tank equipment. From plain tungsten shells in impact casing to napalm in heat-seeking casing to photon bombs in cruise missile casing, the possibilites are endless. You can even launch a satellite into the sky and have it fire at enemy tanks. Getting used to three dimensions might take some time for people used to 2D tank games, but once you finally manage to make the transition, Genocide really shines.
