Hedgewars - Awesome Open-Source Worms-Like Game for Linux

Filed under
Reviews

A few days ago I reviewd WarMUX, a free and open-source Worms-like game for Linux. Today I’ll take a look to Hedgewars, another free Worms clone with funny characters, good playability and support for online multiplayer.

First of all, Hedgewars resembles the original Worms game more accurately than WarMUX, and I’m not referring to playability, which is great for both, but only to the way weapons and characters look like, and also to the in-game configuration and sounds. Here’s how the last Hedgewars release, 0.9.14.1, looks like:

The game highlight features:

- single player and multiplayer (online or LAN)

- bundled map pack

- wide range of weapons to choose from

- in-game fun sounds and in-game music (several entertaining soundtracks)

- possibility to configure teams, weapon settings, fullscreen/windowed mode

Radeon RX 580: AMDGPU-PRO vs. DRM-Next + Mesa 17.2-dev

Last week I posted initial Radeon RX 580 Linux benchmarks and even AMDGPU overclocking results. That initial testing of this "Polaris Evolved" hardware was done with the fully-open Radeon driver stack that most Linux enthusiasts/gamers use these days. The AMDGPU-PRO driver wasn't tested for those initial articles as it seems to have a diminishing user-base and largely focused for workstation users. But for those wondering how AMDGPU-PRO runs with the Radeon RX 580, here are some comparison results to DRM-Next code for Linux 4.12 and Mesa 17.2-dev. Read more
