armagetronad - a 3D Tron-like high speed game
armagetronad [-h, --help] [-v, --version] [--doc] [-f, --fullscreen]
[-w, --window, --windowed] [--fastforward] [--benchmark] [--record]
The rules are simple: you ride a lightcycle (a kind of motorbike that
can only turn 90 degrees at a time, leaves a wall behind and cannot be
stopped). Avoid running into a wall. Make your opponent run into a
wall. This idea comes from the 1982 Disney movie "Tron".
One thing is different than in other Tron clones: you can accelerate.
However, there is a catch. The only way to accelerate is to drive close
to player walls. This allows for some interesting tactics. Every time
you make a turn, you lose 5% of your speed -- so don’t be too nervous,
speed is your only resource against other players!
First thing you shold do is go into the "Player Menu" to set your name
and your keyboard and mouse configuration. Then, go into the "Game
Menu" and start a single player game against one AI opponent (the game
mode does not really matter here). Then, get some friends together and
try the multiplayer modes!
SHIFT-ESC is the "boss key" and quits Armagetron as fast as possible.
