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.

This game is really fun and I really like how its style is a gritty reboot of classic si-fi.

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

*Video Review in:

nice game

One of the better shooters for linux.

Great fast paced arena first person shooter. Not enough people playing online but there are some.

Good and very fluid gameplay, with high levels of adrenaline. A very fast set of action in a not-normally-seen scenario of aliens fighting, combined with excellent graphics.

Awesome game similar to Unreal and Quake

Great game, I understand you put a lot of work in this, but I just can't give it 10/10. It just didin't have something other games have.


Great graphics for a free indie game, balanced, fun gameplay, nice level design, intentionally easy to mod (skin and map creation is encouraged) and overall just a cool game.
If this had a story mode or somesuch I would give it a perfect score for being a perfect game!
