Cube MetalHeart 2

Cube MetalHeart 2

Cube MetalHeart is an open source, fast paced, multi-player shooter based on the Cube 2 Engine.

It is an extended version of Sauerbraten, like a standalone mod. Featuring new graphics, textures, levels, sounds, models, soundtrack and backward compatibility to Sauerbraten maps and servers.

Whilst the graphics are not spectacular, Cube MetalHeart 2 stands out from the crowd with its exceptional playability.
