Mortar Mayhem is a trajectory-type game like the good old Scorched Earth (but this is freeware!).
In Mortar Mayhem you can play 8 players at one time with a huge arsenal of weapons and items (e.g. Large Chaos MIRVs, Multiple Nuclear Warheads, Nitroglycerine Missiles, Guided Missiles and new armour types including Magnetic Shield). The game also has a unique weapon trading system.
This game is very popular because of its simple, but varied gameplay. - It even has a Supporters Club in India ;-)
The development of Mortar Mayhem actually started because Jens Juul Jacobsen and me where puzzled by a very little part of Mortar Mayhem - how to make dirt fall. :-) It might seem a bit weird, but we just discussed it one day and then decided to go home and code it. And that was the beginning of Mortar Mayhem.
The reason for continue coding the game, was that we (more or less) liked the game Scorched Earth, but did not like the fact that is was shareware and that you had to pay for it. So we made Mortar Mayhem the way we would have liked Scorched Earth to be and then released it as freeware.
