First-Person Shooter Game for Linux: Warsow Review

Filed under
Reviews

It's been a while since I last reviewed a shooter game for Linux, and one of them was World of Padman (reviewed here), which was a cartoon-like, funny first-person shooter. Well, the same goes for Warsow, the game I'm going to talk about in this article. Every graphical aspect of Warsow indicates we're dealing with a cartoon-like universe, from the character models to weapons and maps.

Warsow 0.5

Warsow is a free, open-source game providing a fast-paced gameplay and taking place in a futuristic, cartoon-like world. The game features several popular game modes which are characteristic to almost any FPS, but also some particular ones. To list them: Capture the Flag (CTF), Free for All (FFA), Team Deathmatch (TDM), Clan Arena, Instagib, Race and Duel. Three new game modes have been introduced in version 0.5, the last release of Warsow: Team Domination, Headhunt, Bomb & Defuse.

Slackware Live 0.5.1, 1.0 on Its Way

Eric "AlienBob" Hameleers announced Slackware Live Edition 0.5.1 Saturday based on the latest Slackware 14.2 Beta. Hameleers said his livestak is "mostly complete at this point" but still lacks sufficient documentation. That's the goal for stable 1.0. For folks looking for a distro "well equipped to keep systemd out of our distro for a while" but still boots UEFI machines, perhaps Slack Live is the answer. It comes in Slackware default, Xfce, Plasma, and MATE versions, so why not book 'er up? Read more
