Hedgewars is an open source and multi-platform turn based strategy (TBS) video game especially designed to act as a Worms clone, but with hedgehogs. It supports GNU/Linux, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X systems.
How the game works?
In this game, each player controls a team of several hedgehogs, using only one of them per turn to attack and kill the opponents, with the ultimate goal of winning the game. Each hedgehog has its own weapons and abilities. You will be able to move the hedgehogs around the terrain in different ways, such as jumping, walking or by using various objects (rope or parachute).
The game also includes several different weapons to choose from, including grenade, bazooka, cluster bomb, UFO, desert eagle, shotgun, fire punch, dynamite, baseball bat, mine, or pneumatic pick.
Getting started with Hedgewars
You can install the game from the default software repositories of your GNU/Linux distribution (recommended) or by download the latest source tarball from Softpedia and compiling the software, which is a pretty complicated task, as the game is quite big and involves a lot of compilation time.
After installation, you can open the game from the main menu of your GNU/Linux distribution and between playing the game on a single computer (left option) or across a network (right option). From the game's main screen, you can also manage videos recorded from the game, as well as to edit its preferences, such as graphics, audio, controls, video recording, network, etc.
