There is such a game, I can't remember what it's called...
Recently I bought around 60 2600 carts from a used game shop,
and spent a couple days playing them all to see if they worked,
etc... I remember one of them reminding my roommate of
Scorched Earth... I'll have to dig thru the pile and find it
again, unless somebody else knows the game I'm talking about.

That's OK, I always have fun poking through the stacks of old
carts. Last time, I re-discovered Circus Atari, which I'd
completely forgotten about.
