"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."
