Armagetron Advanced

Armagetron Advanced

Armagetron Advanced is a multiplayer game in 3D that attempts to emulate and expand on the lightcycle sequence from the Disney movie from 1982 called "Tron". If you ever wanted to take a try at one of those speed demons features in the movie, this is your chance.

The rules are simple: you ride a light cycle (a kind of motorbike that can only turn 90 degrees at a time, leaves a wall behind and cannot be stopped) and have to avoid running into walls while at the same time you have to try to get your opponent to run into them.

Armagetron Advanced can be played against AI opponents, against other humans over the network, or a mixture of both.

Armagetron Advanced works on the unique concept that a cycle can only accelerate by riding on another player's wall. The closer you are to a player's wall, the faster your cycle will accelerate. Brakes are provided, but they are disabled on many servers. Your cycle turns in right angles, typically, and leaves a long wall behind it wherever it goes. With this in mind, let's talk about movement.
