Genocide is a fun freeware artillery game from PyroSoft that has SVGA graphics and great sound effects (EMS memory required). Although there are numerous artillery games on the Internet, Genocide is undoubtedly one of the better ones I have seen. In contrast to many other flashy remakes, Genocide not only retains all the fun of an artillery game, but also adds an extra challenge: the third dimension you must deal with. Not only do you have to figure out how far and how high to fire, but you also have to figure out the bearing of your shots. The graphics and user interface are both up to snuff you can view the isometric playing field from any angle, including directly overhead, and SVGA resolution makes it easy to see different terrain elevations. Weapons also have nice effects and appropriately big explosions. All in all, a very nice game thats not a fully textured Scorched Earth 3D, but its got a third dimension that adds plenty of new challenges nonetheless. Two thumbs up, way up!
