PsychotronicScorching EarthIf you happen to have spent the dry summer of 2003 in north-western Montana, you might know the feeling of watching a roiling forest fire tumble down a hillside at you at 3:00 AM. It's a paralyzing breakfast combo of beauty and horror, like being stung between the eyes by a gold-plated scorpion, and I highly recommend the experience if you are the sort of person who likes having experiences. I never considered the possibility that fire might be a calculating force, driven by evil intelligence to ravage maximum wilderness. But this is what video games are good for—letting you see things from somebody else's perspective. In this case, the perspective of fire.

Scorching Earth is an intriguing turn-based puzzle game in which you control the actions of an inferno as it seeks to devastate 50 levels worth of landscape. The levels are composed of square tiles, filled with various types of terrain—grasslands, water, trees, and so forth. Your goal on each puzzle is to destroy the required number of tiles. Since you are playing the role of "fire", you must obey some unique restrictions. Basically, you gain power (represented here by "Burn Points") by consuming resources, and then spread to other tiles by expending that power.

The "Burn!" button is the end of your turn. Pressing it causes each active flame to consume part of its square, adding to your Burn Points. Some tiles, such as forests, will allow you to burn them for longer, and yield more points over time. In between turns, you may spend those points on your abilities. The one you'll use most often is "Spread", which costs 2 points and simply expands the fire from one tile to an adjacent tile. Click the flaming space, then the Spread command, then the target space. You can also call down rainstorms to put out rival fires (which are, bizarrely, purple), and meteors to strike far-away spaces and start fresh burns.

Scorching Earth is the first release from letsmakeagame.com, another petal in the current blossoming of websites dedicated to community level design. As with BonusLevel, every game that designer Rowland Rose uploads onto Let's Make a Game will feature a level editor, so that users can add to the games' growth and re-playability. If you make a popular level, it might even end up in the Community Edition of the game later on.

Analysis: This is the sort of game that can easily pass you by, because it looks so unassuming, and its mechanics are so unusual. The instruction page is really not very helpful, so expect to mess things up the first couple of times you play. If you persevere, though, you'll find a highly versatile puzzle engine chugging away. There are a couple of awkward design decisions—the flames are so large that it's difficult to tell what terrain they're sitting on, and it takes too many clicks to cancel a half-finished command—but the basic struggle of Fire Vs. Everything is gripping enough to keep you addicted through 50 levels worth of challenge and variety.

Have I mentioned that there's 50 levels enough times yet? I think it's important for these Web 2.0 games to have a well-constructed group of official levels that teach the player all the ins and outs of gameplay, rather than relying solely on the creative efforts of beta-testers. And Scorching Earth's official level set is stellar, both at introducing concepts and at challenging the human bejeebers out of you. If you're a hard-edged puzzle-holic, this is what you live for.

So it's a good, solid, innovative puzzle game. But I'm mostly fascinated by the way it makes you feel like you're actually controlling a fire. Sometimes you'll hold onto a forest for several turns, gathering strength for a last-minute push across the prairies. Sometimes you'll cut a controlled burn across a choke-point to keep the purple flames from advancing. It's fun being in charge of a natural disaster, following natural disaster rules, attending natural disaster after-parties, caring not for the ashen husk of a world you're leaving behind. It's fun, and if you've ever been close to a real forest fire, kind of grisly.

How do you review a game called "Scorching Earth" and not mention the game it "borrowed" the title from, legendary Eric Savage's Scorched Earth? :)

Maybe it wasn't mentioned because the two games are not similar at all except for their title and featuring turn-based gameplay?

Neat review. I spent many nights watching (this) (fire) from a hill near my house (It was only kilometers away, and it was an incredible thing to see so close). Maybe it was watching back!

Wow, this game is difficult and frustrating. I've been working on the third level now for twenty minutes.

I can't 'rush' the purple flames, bacause that leaves me with eight squares while I need nine of them. Waiting for a raincloud seems to take too many turns. Grrr!

This game is really good. I remember there once was a game called ¨Scorched Earth¨. It was like worms only with cannons:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scorched_Earth_(computer_game)
I wonder whether they thought about that when they named this game.

Even with the walkthrough I can't even get past level 1. I always end up with one sand ground left.

Ugh. I tried the first level several times before I got frustrated and gave up. Perhaps I'll come back to it at a later time.

The first level seems to be far harder than the following levels. Follow Psychotronic's instructions to get past it and you might find the rest of the game more enjoyable.

This game is pretty hard :)

Yes level 1 took me a bit to figure out, but once you get passed it, you understand how to play this game.

let me explain level 1:

All steps:

select the flame, click spread and click on the tile below the flame.
Then click "BURN!!!"

select the bottom flame and spread to the left.
click burn

6 is easy just:

Spread through the trees, then rain on the other fire. After that wait until you have only one burn left on your ground before spreading to the next trees. When you have 6 points spread to the remaining three.

Spread to the forest to the right, BURN
Spread to the grassland south of that, BURN
Spread to the forest to the right of that (just above the purple enemy fire), BURN
Spread to the mountain (just above the purple enemy fire), BURN
Spread to the grassland to the left of the mountain, BURN
Launch a meteor at the desert at the very bottom southeast of the island to keep the enemy purple fire from getting it, BURN
Spread to the grassland north of your one remaining flame, BURN
Do nothing, BURN
Spread to the desert above you, and again to the other desert, BURN

also stuck on level 8. I can get 16 points, but not 17. Tips below.

spreading:

The first one is that spread is the most efficient means of getting anywhere. If you can spread to get to your destination, that's the best route because you don't use up the points generated on extra travel.

rain:

Rain is not terribly useful if it's possible to block the blue flame with your own flame. If you can spread to an area with your flames, then you can probably do the block.

blue flames:

The blue flames don't really have an AI behind them. They just sit on an area, wait for it to count down. Just before it goes out, they get to spread to any neighboring squares. There doesn't seem to be a charge for this...
Because of this, you can use their areas as timers. You know you need to get to a particular square and can count up how many moves you need to get there

Level 8 thoughts

If you let the blue flames have everything up to and including the mountain range, you'll need to get all three islands.
I managed to get to 2 out of 3 of the islands and my last fire goes out with 7 points - almost enough for the last island.
My technique was to spread as fast as I could toward the mountains (going through the lone mountain on the way there). I needed to jump one square in order to get to the mountains in time.
If I could have avoided that jump, I might have been able to get all three islands. But I don't see a way to get to the edge of the three mountains without that jump.

Use all spreads. Spread down the right hand of the island, staying right along the shore. Spread to the tree and the grassland (4,5 and 5,6) just as the blue flames are in the mountains. On the next turn, you'll have six points and can spread to the remaining trees and grassland.
Once you've blocked the blue flames, finish burning the big island. you'll be able to afford two meteors. Hit the mountain and grassland islands. Just as the grassland island is running out, you'll be able to meteor the dessert island.

Psychotronic's walkthrough was absolutely vital in getting me to understand this game.

I was thinking you had to get 11 burn points to pass the first level.

I was trying to work out how on earth I could get 11 burn points on level 1!

It's really confusing in that Burn points and Score points are actually completely different things, and this isn't clear at all.

The Burn points are shown in a large box, and of course it's natural to think it's linked to your score. It actually isn't at all.

Score points are actually how many squares you've completely burned.

So you can pass level 1 with zero Burn points but with max Score points from completely burning all the land.

Once I realised this, the game became much easier.

I don't think I need spoiler tags for this as the game instructions do mention this but it's not clear.

To all those who are wondering why Scorched Earth isn't mentioned (besides the obvious inapplicability) - both its title, and the title of this game, are references to a military tactic: specifically, the tactical denial of resources (originally, and usually, food) to the enemy forces. The original 'scorched earth' referred to croplands, as for example in the Persian/Greek wars and the Gallic Wars of the Roman Empire - both of which predate Scorched Earth, the computer game, by several millennia.

I'm on 21 now, but for 19,

SPREAD south, then SPREAD east until you hit the enemy fire.

Once you hit the enemy fire, SPREAD to the patches just to the south and to the north too. Keep SPREADing north after that, while you leave that single patch in southernmost row burning. You'll need to do a single jump in a bit, either to the north or the east, so you can surround an enemy fire that's about to spread. When your fire in the south gets to the point that it will burn out in one turn, SPREAD it west.

Keeping spreading north and east. At this point, if you count the tiles, you'll see that you can only burn 27 maximum. In order to win, RAIN on the northeast most enemy fire, and make sure that their last fire can't go anywhere. After that it should just be a matter of spreading more until you have all the remaining tiles, then using a meteor on the little island.

Level 9

spread up 3 times, after 3 burns you have 5 points, spread up twice before hitting burn again. You now have 6 points and top two of middle row on fire, hit burn again giving you 8pts and one fire left. Meteor third active square up on left side cutting off purple flame. Burn, spread up and burn..repeat til all left squares are burning 1,2,1 turns on the 3 squares, do one more burn, leaving one fire and 8pts, for you guessed it, another meteor. Use meteor on top right square. Burn. Spread down once, burn x3 , leaving second square one burn left and 6 pts..spread down twice then jump lowest flame to bottom grassland square leaving 0pts so burn and burn once more giving 4 pts, spread up twice and bingo let it burn baby!

theres maybe an easier way and I'm sure a shorter explanation but it works :)

"You don't need to use rain here. You have another ability that can score you an extra tile."

Er, that doesn't seem to work. There are only 10 tiles IN TOTAL, which means that if the purple flame kills even one tile. I don't remember the exact way I won, but you have to spread to the left, and only block off the "bridge" to the island by spreading, not jumping. You have plenty of time. Once you have the top three squares of the island burning, just wait till you have enough for rain, then rain the purple fire and jump downwards immediately.

Level 23

Spread on your island as fast as you can. When you can do a meteor, you want to hit the bottom-left corner of the other island, next to the fire.
Then its just a matter of contain without painting yourself in a corner. You end up losing the right two columns of the big island and the middle tile on the bottom row.

Very nice game concept! I worked past 25, and will come back for the rest another time. Many of the levels were quite challenging, with only one solution. I don't remember all of them, but I think I had the most trouble with 24:

You don't need any of the islands.

Head down first, then to the right, and try to isolate the purple flames as quickly as possible. I made it through with 51 squares, more than the 49 required!

Murphy's Gaming Law strikes again: when you post a request for hints, you will solve the problem shortly afterwards on your own!

Level 11:

1)

you must burn twice to save enough to jump all the way down to the upper-right tree, otherwise you will burn out in the desert

2)

after burning the tree once, jump left to the upper-left tree

3)

burn twice

4)

spread to the lower-left tree, burn

5)

spread right to the lower-right tree, burn

6)

burn once

6a)

at this point, going from upper-right clockwise, you should have 3 burns left, 2 burns left, 1 burn left and the upper-left tree should be burnt completely

7)

spread up to the upper-right, burn

8)

burn again so that you have only one burn left on the upper-right tree and the other trees are burnt; you should have 8 burn points

9)

use the 8 burn points to spread along the desert back to the starting point, burn the final 5 squares

10)

select next level to go on to level 12

10a)

select restart level if you've got a masochistic streak or can't believe you actually finished this level! :P

Fantastic game. I love games like these which are solvable without trial and error because underneath it's all just math, and yet after just a few levels it becomes fairly intuitive (in that you don't have to count out the moves ahead of time, but just play according to feel), and yet the level designs are varied enough that you don't feel like you're solving the same gimmick trick over and over again. Wonderful!

Just finished 27.

The key is to beat the blue fire to the desert isthmus while only using one jump. I don't remember the exact sequence of moves, but you also need to keep both edges of your forest base burning. You'll also need every single burn point you have to meteor that island up north.
Basically, I started spreading along the forest as fast as possible, focusing on going south. Then, when I had the points, I spread twice across the desert, then jumped the last square to this isolated forest tile. Then, the next turn, I spread out to the isthmus just ahead of blue. After that, it was just a matter of managing the burn everywhere else so that I always had enough points to keep everything going.

I remember using a rainstorm on the forest at 5,2 to bottle up the fire in the south. If you do that, the only fire that threatens to get out of control is the north-center one, so throw all your fires into getting that contained. After you do that, it's just a matter of burning all the tiles without getting trapped.

Maybe I just got better as I went, but I had a pretty easy time with all of the levels from 26 onward... I finished most of them on my first try, and many of them with more points than necessary. I think that 1-25 were a lot harder.

Ah! Finally, I cracked the level 25. My solution is probably quite unorthodox, but here it goes:

(letters horizontal, numbers vertical)

D3 jump E3, BURN

D3 spread D4, BURN

D4 spread D5, E3 jump E2, BURN

D5 spread D6, D6 spread D7, BURN

D7 spread D8, D8 spread E8, BURN

E8 spread F8, E2 spread E3, E3 spread F3, BURN

F3 spread G3, G3 spread G4, G4 spread H4, BURN

H4 spread H3, BURN

H3 spread H2, H2 spread H1, BURN

Now you have 10 burn points, three fires but only one of them can be used to conquer the rest of the land, and one purple fire in the bottom right corner which is about to die the next turn. Don't let it die, but rain on it instead. Then, continue to burn what is left, and when you are about to finish near the left bottom corner, you have plenty of burn points to meteor the last square in the bottom right.

I'm either drunk or I had trouble reading a couple of my LAST LEVEL WALKTHROUGH numbers. Most likely the former, but if you have trouble just burn the bottom trees and don't get trapped NW or in the middle after going up top and throwing the meteor. Burn the bottom and TCB after that. It isn't one of the tougher ones in my opinion

Dar_jee_ling

It seems like your solution to level 25 does not work: it starts at D3, whereas the level starts at C3. If I assume that you mean spread to D3 and then execute your plan, I cannot spread D3 -> D4 after jumping D3 E3. If I assume that your first step is C3 jump D3, by the time I get to D4 spread D5, I have no burn points to do E3 jump E2 before burning. Please explain.

Does anyone else have a full walkthrough?

i can't make heads nor tails of dar_jee_ling's level 25 walkthrough.
you start on C3(?), where do i go from there?

dar_jee_ling your 25 solution doesn't work - at the beginning:

D3 jump E3, BURN D3 spread D4, BURN

If you've jumped from D3 at the start you can't spread from it because there's no fire there...

Still stuck on 25...

How to beat level 25:

The columns are A-H from left to right. The rows are 1-8 from top to bottom. You start on C3. Your foe starts on F6.

SPREAD right from C3 to D3. BURN.

SPREAD down to D4. BURN.

SPREAD down to D5. BURN. The purple flames have spread. You have three flames, two of which are about to burn out.

SPREAD right from D3 to E3. JUMP right from D4 to E4. BURN.

SPREAD down from D5 to D6, then down from D6 to D7 to cut off the purple flames. BURN. You now have flames on both the bottom and the right, and 5 burn points to spend. Keep 'em burning!

SPREAD right from E3 to F3. SPREAD down from D7 to D8. BURN! You should be able to figure it from here. If not...

SPREAD down from F3 to F4. Spread right from F4 to G4. You've successfully cut of the purple flames from advancing north. SPREAD right from D8 to E8. BURN!

SPREAD right from G4 to H4. You've cornered the purple flames! Also SPREAD LEFT from D8 to C8, to keep the fire burning, although this second step is optional. BURN!
At this point, as long as you burn every remaining square, you'll win with exactly 49 points. For extra credit, use RAIN on the bottom right tile right before the purple flames burn it, then hit it with METEOR later, to earn 50 points. Just make sure not to let your flames get caught in a corner, and victory is yours!

Also, the "Preview" function is deceptive. Preview will show manual breaks (like when you hit the enter key) but those do not appear when you actually post the comment. I'd edit my post to have clean breaks between sentences, but I can't find an edit button...

Sorry about the preview function. I need someone to fix that because I can't seem to do it myself. Preferably someone good with Regular Expressions and Perl.

And an Edit function for comments is on the Todo list, as well.

42 stumped me for a bit. Here's how you win:

First turn, SPREAD north onto the mountains with the flames on the West end (or far East, if you're fan of that kind of thing). BURN. You have one fire, and a pile of points.


Second turn, SPREAD across the mountains twice. RAIN on the purple fire in the second row (on the desert). METEOR the top jungle tile to block the remaining purple fire. You're out of points. BURN


Third turn, JUMP (Not SPREAD!!) from the upper jungle to the lower jungle. Use your remaining points to SPREAD the fire along the southern mountains. You want to burn all of these mountains as quickly as possible. BURN.


Strategy going forward: finish burning the mountains on the bottom as soon as you can. Before your sourthern jungle fire goes out, SPREAD back to the northern jungle. Right before the northern jungle fire goes out, SPREAD to the right TWICE (to the desert tile you rained on earlier) then JUMP right until you hit the grasslands.


Once you're on the grasslands, Spread out to the peninsula. Before your fire nearest the desert goes out, SPREAD a flame onto the desert, then JUMP twice to get to the MIDDLE of the second grassy peninsula. SPREAD out to the tip of the peninsula on your first turn, and then SPREAD back to the inside edge at the last minute, so that tile is still burning when the rest of the grasslands burn out. Your last move is to SPREAD across the desert just before the last tile of grasslands burn out completely.

Good luck!

Thank you SirNiko! It had not occurred to me to burn the southern island ASAP. As soon as I read the second line of your guide I knew what to do!

I'm totally stumped on 41. I can't even get close to the required 24 squares. The best I got was 21. It seems like I need to focus on holding the right side of the map for myself, but once the purple flames reach the grasslands on the bottom left, they spread too fast and I can save up enough points to spread to the grasslands on the bottom rigth corner.

Hey,

if anyone feels like posting walkthroughs for 40 through 50, I would really appreciate it. I am stuck on 41, like the poster above.

41 was the hardest for me as well. here's how i did it eventually:

spread right to (6,4), burn

jump up to (6,5), spread down to (4,3), burn

spread up to (6,6), spread right to (5,3), burn

spread down to (5,2), spread left to (4,2), burn

spread down to (5,1), spread up to (6,7), burn

spread left to (4,1), spread up to (6,8), burn

spread right twice to (7,1), burn

spread right twice to (8,8), spread down to (7,7), burn

spread down thrice to (8,5), burn

spread down thrice to (7,4), burn

spread four more times ad lib, score should be 27 now

my 46 solution:

spread left to (3,2), burn

spread down to (4,1), burn

spread up to (4,3), burn

spread up twice to (4,5), burn

spread up to (4,6), spread right to (5,5), spread right to (5,1), burn

spread right to (6,5), burn

spread right to (7,5), spread up to (7,6), spread left to (3,5), burn

spread down thrice to (5,2), spread right to (6,2), burn

spread to the remaining 2x2 tiles on the right half, burn

how to deal on the remaining tiles on the left side should be obvious, score = 28

I believe I beat level 32 on my first try, with 41 tiles even though the mininum is 36. Afterwards I decided to keep playing it for a bit. I got 43 at the maximum, but I haven't been able to get anymore. Has anyone been able to get more than 43 on 32?

I got 45, but haven't tried to get a 'perfect' 46 score (ie everything but the 3 tiles in the upper left).

spread to (7,6), (8,6), (8,7) and (6,6), burn
rain on (3,1) and (2,7), spread up to (5,4), burn

Finished.
This game is awesome fun.
There are some very tricky levels in there!
Perhaps they could introduce a "Difficulty Vote" System to put the levels into a more fair order.

I really enjoy this game, but I wish the opponent had a more... I dunno, predictable first response. It feels to me like you just have to go through the first time just to see what he does, and probably lose that one.
