       netPanzer - an online multiplayer tactical warfare game


       netpanzer [options]


       This  program  is  a  free (GPL) isometric view real-time tactical game
       designed for play across the Internet and over LAN systems. One on  one
       games are  possible via direct connect or modem.

       netPanzer  is  designed  for  FAST  ACTION  combat -- it is not another
       resource management clone. In fact, there aren’t any resources at  all.
       Each  player will have many units of different types at their disposal.
       Players can fight until their units are destroyed -- then  respawn  and
       keep on going.

       The game is real-time, but it’s based on quick tactical action and unit
       management. Battles progress quickly  and  constantly;  in  fact,  they
       never  let  up.  There  is  no  stop  in the action because there is no
       waiting for resources to be  collected  and  converted  into  weaponry.
       Players can join or leave  multiplayer games at any time.
