Description of Nuclear Attack!

The result of my participation in the Christmas Hack '05 - an 8 day secret santa event that involved participants implementing the vague game descriptions of others in order to provide them with a Christmas present. This entry was for a guy named OICW on the theme of a nuclear war simulator and attempts to mimic the graphical feel of the early 80s Atari vector arcade machines such as Tempest and Battlezone. It uses a custom anti-aliased line drawer based on the well known, and blindingly obvious, wu-lines algorithm but modified a little to better preserve line thickness at all angles.

Originally based quite strongly on the famous missile riding scene from Doctor Strangelove, this evolved into something like a very simple 3d perspective variant on the Tanx/Scorched Earth theme of trying to aim at things from a distance, with a little bit of post shot guiding thrown in. This project finally used the retro sound effects I had made for my tiny little Robotron themed thing.
