Altitude – Linux flies with multiplayer retro-style plane combat

Filed under

Anyone who is old enough to remember the Atari 2600 will recall the plane warfare game which provided hours of fun for two players and you fought it out. It also spawned numerous clones on the same system, with tanks and a plethora of others my failing memory has chosen to forget. Happier times.
