Sorry for being late to the party, but finally I have a mostly playable version of my game, which I can post about without too much apologizes. This is Ouranos! a.k.a. Weather Wars, originally developed by Kathy Higby for the Commodore PET, eventually ported to the C64 and many years later other formats including the Tandy MC-10. The game is for two players in the style of artillery war except that shooting missiles at eachother, you get to control four different types of weather: rain, hail, tornado and lightning. The outcome of a weather is a combination of the starting location (the cloud), the wind strength and your charge. The weather types have different properties regarding how much damage they cause and how easy they are to control, for instance the lightning is not affected by wind at all. You take turns against eachother, using either controller. After each turn there is a 20% chance that a so-called act of nature will take place. It means a random weather will take place, at random starting position, random wind and random strength meaning it can affect either or neither player. When one player has had their house eliminated, the game ends and you get to play again. Shoot me with feedback, though I can't promise I'll have time to implement any changes before the deadline on Friday. ouranos.zip
