I had been considering writing this for the Commodore DTV in 256 colors.. but lack of network hardware would mean you'd have to have two DTVs directly connected via userport or something. I wrote this game under Linux/Xwindows about 5 years ago. The concept is pretty easy to code, and the game is very fun. It is remeniscent of a modern real-time strategy.

Nah.. I'm not really doing any C64 specific coding anymore. The only reason I'm back in the scene at all is simply for DTV stuff, of which I have specific uses and interest. Besides, the DTV would be much better for Flash Attack due to the DMA system, the high-color modes, and LOTS of extra RAM for having huge terrain maps and stuff.
Not that it couldn't be done nicely on the C64, but just not as nicely.
