Warsow 1.51

A fast paced FPS (First-Person Shooter) game for the Linux, Mac and Windows OSes
Warsow is an standalone, multi-platform and open source first-person shooter (FPS) video game for Linux, Windows and Mac platforms. It is based on the Qfusion 3D engine, which is a modified version of Quake 2's engine.

The game provides users with a unique FPS experience set in a distant future with cartoonish-style graphics. It features fast-paced gameplay with an emphasis on the art of move and on trix (trick jumps), and a complete power-up system.

Being inspired by popular video game titles, such as Quake3 CPMA, Quakeworld, Speedball or Jet Set Radio, Warsow includes strong and weak fire modes for each weapon. It is very similar to the Unreal Tournament 2004 game, where users need to jump, dodge, walljump and dash their way through the game.

The game is available for download as unified tar archives for both Linux and Windows operating systems, as well as a source archive with SDK for developers who want to create modes, as well as binary files for Mac OS X and Ubuntu Linux operating systems.

It is also distributed via the Steam or GOG game distribution platforms, on all the aforementioned OSes. It can be played by anyone, as it does not contain hard graphical violence. Both single-player and multiplayer modes are available at this time.

Among other interesting features, we can mention an easy-to-learn-and-use scripting engine with C++/JavaScript-like style syntax called AngelScript and designed to be used for creating game types, the ability to run your own server, flexible HUD scripting engine.

In addition, it features highly customizable graphic settings, compelling "e-sports"- features, storage of match results and global stats, a rich user interface, and an open source engine that allows anyone to create their own gameplay mods.

Summing up, Warsow is a great and entertaining first-person shooter game for all ages and all genres. It is portable and highly configurable, allowing users to create new mods and gametypes.
