|The Missile Game 3D is a fun Flash game where you pilot a missile down a circular corridor full of rotating disks. The goal is to make it through all nine levels using 5 rockets or less. After a few tries, I've been able to make it 89% of the way through level 4 on my latest run.|

|Fun indeed |
On my second try I got 71% through level 8 before screwing up constantly.
|<a href=http://www.filelibrary.com/Contents/DOS/84/17.html>This page is part of a listing of old DOS games. #625 on the list is a game called <a href=http://www.filelibrary.com:8080/cgi-bin/freedownload/DOS/n/84/don3v200.zip>D.O.N. 3d, which is a rather entertaining turn-based Explore and Conquer game. It is 2D with isometric projection (what's often called two-and-a-half D). I've only played it against the AI, but apparently it supports multiplayer.|
Caveat: it is an old DOS game and probably the sound needs to be disabled in order to run. (You won't miss much.) Just modify the DON.BAT file to include the -noSound switch. On singleplayer I usually play it as -noSound -noMouse -noNet just to be sure.
It is very replayable, however. I have thought of a remake of this game as a good candidate for a community-written effort in Lino, if we ever become less lazy.

I sometimes play Tremulous, and it can be rather fun. The base building options and asymmetrical teams set it apart from most other online shooters. It does have some rough edges, but is well worth the download.
|Some little FPS's I found. All of them are online and could be played by us if we had time to set up a couple games.|
Enemy territory was initially planned as a commercial product, so it's well built. I hadn't played it in a while, but just picked it up again the other week. It's also a lot of fun.
I tried Babo Violent 2 before, but it grew old rather quickly. The visuals aren't very interesting, and there are a whole three textures, making all maps look identical. The weapons handle fairly well, but the gameplay doesn't offer much to help it stand out.

We do have time to set those up!
|Blabla.. All of them are online and could be played by us if we had time to set up a couple games...blabla|
|But that would require us to visit IRC. : P|

|Blep. No visitation of IRC, no games to be setup! Easy as that!|
Bah, and I was really looking forward to pouncing you naked humans to death with my awesome Dragoon skills....

|Didn't anyone see my post? At least try Zomband, it's pretty small, (Only a few mb methinks.) so those of you with dial up shuoldn't have much of a problem with it.|

|We saw it, and maybe some of us played it. There are some zomby-lovers around this board.|
But we don't have to discuss it, if you want that, make it more interesting and tell us a bit about it. Post screenshots, tell us why the game is great.
|You could try to avoid things like this too:|
* frodo091 has joined #noktis
<frodo091> hello everyone
<frodo091> i found a great new game. it's called zomband. it's a combination of Dead Rising and a roguelike. http://www.zooptek.net/siteframe/folder.php?id=27
<frodo091> it's free too
* frodo091 has quit IRC (Quit: ChatZilla 0.9.78.1 [Firefox 18.104.22.168/2007030919]?)
If you just talk about the game, say a few things and then leave you look like a walking advertisement instead of a person trying to point out a good game. Most people tend to avoid/ignore advertisements.
On the subject of the game, I play it, and it is pretty fun. And as Buuks said, we really don't have to talk about the game.

|Sorry about the irc thing. I got up to do something, and my sister logged out of it while I was gone, because she was p.o.ed at me for some odd reason. About the screenshot thing, I kind of figured a screenshot of a rougelike would be somewhat of an oxymoron. Thanks for the constructive criticism, I'll take it to heart.|

Let me guess, you discovered this a little ways up this very page, where Chad posted a link to it. : P
|I just found out that Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory is freeware.|
