WarMUX - Free Clone of Worms for Linux

Dec 22, 2010, 05:02 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to Chris7mas for this link. ]

"Previously known as Wormux, WarMUX is a free, open-source clone of the popular game Worms, with completely new, free-licensed graphics and music/sounds, available for Linux, Windows and Mac. Starting with version 0.9.0, WarMUX introduced single player games versus AI too. The available game modes are single player (vs AI) and multiplayer on the online server, as well as hotseat games.

"Suicidal thoughts put in practice

"For those who never played Worms-like games, here's what WarMUX is about. It's a turn-based, team game, taking place on various 2D maps, with each team formed by 1 or more characters which you will be able to control, one at a time, when your turn arrives. You can move your characters around and choose from a wide range of weapons to exterminate your enemies. In WarMUX each team can have a minimum of one and a maximum of 10 characters, and the game also offers various configuration settings before the game starts, settings which will have an impact on the game (like gravity, duration of a turn, enabling/disabling character switching and so on). The game ends when all of the enemy teams' members are dead."
