Yep. Check out my cheap'n cheezy "Path of the Fury" conversion on my web
below. It's a real challange with the skewed fire arcs to get someone in
sights and nail 'em. I've only played two games with this conversion, so
make no promises about their balance, but it can be a heck of a lot of
fun. I
realize they may not make a whole lot of sense, so if you have any
email me.
