Another version of the simple action game modeled after the lightcycle sequence of the movie Tron with network capabilities in 3D.
Armagetron Advanced is a 3D multiplayer action game users can play either locally against AIs or other humans in splitscreen mode or on a network against other humans. In the game you control a lightcycle that leaves behind a wall and can only do 90- degree turns (by default). Main target is to get others to crash into your wall while trying to stay alive yourself. Game types include Last Man Standing, Fortress (conquer the enemy zone) and Deathmatch with respawning. Each server can have its own unique physics settings, including speed, amount of brakes, aceleration you get when driving close to another wall, niceness when hitting walls, wall length, the directions a cycle can turn into and much more. There's also support for maps which allows you to not just fight within a rectangular area but an arena of any shape.
