Teeworlds – A Retro multiplayer shooter for linux

Posted: October 21, 2011 in Games

Teeworlds is a fast-paced 2d sidescrolling multiplayer-only shooter played on a computer. The game features cartoon-themed ( more like worms ) graphics and physics, and relies heavily on classic shooter weaponry and gameplay. In the game, you roleplay a Tee, a cute ball who carries  various weaponry (  sometimes bigger than the tee itself) and a hook , allowing some Spiderman like movement. Teeworlds is open source and runs on all major operating systems.

Teeworlds gameplay can, despite it’s small size, compete with bigger and expensive productions in terms of fun and innovation. What sets Teeworld apart from other sidescrollers game is it’s huge focus on mobility, it’s innovative use of the grappling hook and it’s weaponry. The instant respawn is also well implemented.

You start the game with only a hammer and a long range pistol (and the hook), but there are other weapons lying around on full map. So ammunition isn’t too much of an issue. The weapons are varied and better players will learn to switch weapons quickly as they each have their own pros and cons. There are two modes only deathmatch and capture the flag which i think is sufficient for casual play.

One of the biggest goals of the Teeworlds crew is to make their game very casual friendly, or in other words, to attract casual gamers. Just launch the game and within 15 seconds you are in action. You will never get lonely because too many players are playing it with about 300 active servers. If you need some entertainment , try it and you will definitely like it.
