OpenLieroX 0.59b4

OpenLieroX is (like the original Liero) kind of a realtime Worms. OpenLieroX is based and compatible to the famous LieroX. LieroX is a 2D shooter game. It is an unofficial sequel to Liero, and is the most popular of all the Liero clones. It features online play, fully customizable weapons, levels and characters. Liero Xtreme was created in C++ by Jason 'JasonB' Boettcher, an Australian programmer.

The game is based on a deathmatch setting, where multiple players face off in a closed level. Each player is equipped with five weapons selected out of all the weapons allowed, and with a ninja rope that allows the player to move in any direction. Players begin with a set amount of lives, and whilst the game records the number of kills, the last man standing is usually considered the winner. LieroX also allows team deathmatches, which has made it common for players to form clans.

Because of the huge community, there are dozens of levels and mods available. You also have no problem to find somebody on Internet to play with. Or if you want to play offline, you also can play with bots.

Mac Games Fixes and Changes

For those who don't know, Gusanos is another Liero clone, as old as LieroX (actually, I don't know - who was first, can somebody tell?), with much nicer physics, sound and gfx effects (well, physics may be subjective). The reason why (O)LX has become the favourit is because Gusanos was not really so intuitive to use (most of the life of this game, it didn't had a GUI) and it was restricted mostly to Windows only (Linux x86 was theoretically supported but it had dependencies to some comercial libs which were mostly not available on distributions). Checkout some videos on Youtube (or linked here on LXA) to get some impression about Gusanos. There are also a lot of really fancy mods and levels for Gusanos. Gusanos mods and levels are highly scripted. It is all based on Lua and you can do a lot of stuff - and I mean really a lot. There are levels with rain, jumppads, damaging elements and many dynamic elements here and there. There are also dynamic lights and you got a flashlight to see something. All that is in OLX now. OLX is compatible to most Gusanos levels/mods out-of-the-box! (And those who don't work should be trivial to be fixed.) Then, there are 3D sounds now. That was introduced mainly because of Gusanos (which always had 3D sounds). The overall quality of the sounds should also be improved. We use OpenAL now. And we have single player support now. :) This is mainly thought to provide some nice introduction / tutorial for newcomers. But maybe some of you is interested in creating a whole game? In any way, I hope I can get some further tutorial levels from you. More information will come later but it's mostly straight forward to be used (checkout the games directory).

Mac Games Rating Jax (9/2/2007 - version 0.57b3)
This is one of the most fun games I've discovered in a long time and it's FREE! It's kinda like the old game Worms but in real time. Basically it's a 2D side stroller deathmatch shoot em up type game. It has online play too and best of all it's FREE!
