Description: Cube is an open source multiplayer and singleplayer first person shooter game built on an entirely new and very unconventional engine. Cube is a landscape-style engine that pretends to be an indoor FPS engine, which combines very high precision dynamic occlusion culling with a form of geometric mipmapping on the whole world for dynamic LOD for configurable fps & graphic detail on most machines.

Notes: built-in level editor allows you to develop your own levels.

Reviews: graphics a little dated compared to the latest windows game but lots of fun, multiplayer is a blast!

Category: Shoot'em Up

Homepage: Transfusion

License: GPL

Latest Version: 1.0.1

Platform: Linux # Mac OS # Windows.

Hardware Requirement: -

Additional System Requirements: ogg vorbis # zlib # libjpeg.

Singleplayer: No

Multiplayer: Yes

Demo: Freeware

Description:A remake of Monolith's infamous Blood using the modern Darkplaces engine.

TransFusion plunges you into a world originally created in 1997 by Monolith Productions. Created with the BUILD game engine (Duke Nukem, Shadow Warrior), BLOOD was a tour de force of horror that has yet to be matched, in which you battled minions of evil in a lightning-paced, blood splattered quest for glory.

Thrill to new, enhanced special effects not seen in the original as you guide Caleb along his gory quest through a 3-dimensional world of horror. But the fun is just beginning then...

When Tchernobog's Cabal has fallen, there's millions of challengers vying for your throne out there in cyberspace. Be sure to hone your skills against the enhanced FrikBots ® before defending your title in online bloodbaths.

This is a standalone game. Blood is not required to play Transfusion.

Description: Unreal Tournament 2004 is a multiplayer first person shooter that combines the kill-or-be-killed experience of gladiatorial combat with cutting-edge technology. Ten game modes - both team-based and "every man for himself" -- provide even the most hardcore gamer with palm-sweating challenges through unbelievably detailed indoor arenas and vast outdoor environments. As the ultimate techno-gladiator of the future, players will take their fates into their hands, battling against up to 32 other players online in action-packed, frag-filled arenas.

Notes: - also available is a dedicated server for linux

- downloadable add-on Editor's Choice Edition (ECE)

- tons of additional content available for this game, google for CBP1, CBP2, FlagPack

- as noted above, this game supports linux out of the box, so support Epic and buy a copy

- tons of mods, add-ons and total convertions based on this game (not all of them easy to install under linux though). See this link for a list of mods.

Reviews: Awesome! This shooter is really fast (too fast for some) but has a lot of depth, easy to pick up, but can be taken to much higher levels as you get better. Many game modes ensures variety, new Onslaught mode is great!
