Alien Arena is an open sourced game that combines a sci-fi atmosphere with the tournament style deathmatch of Q3A and UT2k4. Major graphical features such as GLSL per-pixel lighting, ragdoll physics, light blooms, real time lights and shadows, textured particles, shaders, and reflective water, create a colorful and immersive deathmatch atmosphere. The game also includes mutators, adjustable effects, bot skill settings, and fully configurable deathmatch, team deathmatch, CTF, All Out Assault, Team Core Assault, Cattle Prod, and Deathball games. The game features original artwork, with a dark, sinister atmosphere combined with an off-the-wall campiness, and trippy, techno type music. There are currently over 60 maps, loaded with weapons(each having an alternate firing mode) and powerups. Alien Arena has fast, smooth gameplay, & players can play online against one another or against the bots. Please post all support issues in the forums for the game.

Love the retro sci-fi vibe. Great game play. Roll on the next release.

This game returns me to time when I have played Quake 2 and Unreal Tournament,very nice game and it is completely free,
I like it.

By far the best FPS I have played in a long,long time..
Just download the game and you will know what I'm talkin about.
The retro sci-fi thing is bad ***..for those who say the graphics suck,
you obviously haven't played the game...I don't play any other game now
NO NEED TO...So try it, You have nothin to lose and everything to gain :-)

I <3 This game ^^ awesome, the spawm is the only "bad thing" but overall, nice xD I really enjoy playing this game :) Nice work

*Video Review in:

nice game

A great job you've done, guys! Thank you!

grat graphics great gameplay, great maps, great weapons.
but it s a pity you can only play online / start local servers.
the levels have a great theme, all it misses is a single player campaign.
all the levels already fit a central theme so coming up with a good story shouldn t be a problem...

One of the better shooters for linux.


as a simple quake 2 mod in 2006 to a total conversion with crx,a completely enhanced q2-based engine that looks like quake 4
