World of Padman (WoP) is an open source first-person shooter computer game. It was originally conceived as a modification of Quake III Area, entitled PadMod.
The idea of the game is based on the Padman comic strip for the magazine PlayStation Games created by the professional cartoon artist Andreas Endres, who is also the man who made many of the maps included with the game in 1998.
In World of Padman when you run out of health you will die unless you restore your health at a loading station or with the power-up ‘revival’ unlike in other games. In World of Padman there are no health bubbles to collect unlike in games such as Quake III Arena. As long as you stand on a loading station, which is currently shown on the left of this section, you’ll regenerate your health over a short period of time.
World of Padman runs on an enhanced version of the ioquake3 engine, which is based on the Quake III Arena engine. Most of the maps in the game are lilliput style, and have a commercial-quality level of graphic complexity.
