How to use

First rule of napalm: Mind the wind!
The flames are heavily affected by wind, so you have to take the wind into account.

Move your mouse cursor where the air plane should drop the napalm bombs. Remember the flames will not neccessarily end up where you clicked, unless there is no or almost no wind.
During targeting your hedgehog cannot move but instead you can use the left/right movement keys to change direction of impact.

Use a mouse click to confirm location and direction.

After a brief moment a plane will appear high in the sky and drops 6 napalm bombs above it. The napalm bombs burst into flames after 1 second.

Hints

  • Mind the wind!
  • Practice a bit with the napalm and wind to get a “feeling” of where the flames will go

Trivia

  • Napalm bombs would explode when the would hit the landscape, but since these are dropped so high, they never actually impact
  • The airplane will have the color of the attacking team
