Bitfighter is a fast-paced team-based outer-space multi-player combat game, with many game modes and unique maps. Players can (and do) create maps by using the built-in map editor. Space exploration for warfare, construction, and beyond! It's fast, fun, and frenetic.
An awesome game and the best community there is! Even though we only have a couple of developers, these guys work day and night repairing bugs and adding new features. Also, anybody can get the source code and pith in! But not only the community is awesome, but the game too! The game is an open-source vector graphics game. This game is the successor of ZAP by GarageGames. To read the full story, check out the Wiki on bitfighter.org. The game has a built in level editor, multiple modules and weapons, amazing vector graphics, super cross-platform, an unlimited amount of levels, free and open-source.

Easily one of the best semi-competitive multiplayer games I've played in a long time.
Gameplay is simple and really easy to pick up. There's a decent amount of customization in the way you organize your weapon and module selection, and there are enough combinations to fit every gameplay situation.
The multiplayer is top-notch. This game was built for multiplayer. One of the aspects that I really like is that player ships are weak, and respawning is encouraged. I've played too many games where I had to be conservative of my player's health and not take any risks. Bitfighter's really different in that regard, and I love it. Epic, reckless, all-out combat is a hallmark of this game.
That said, strategy's a big part of it, too. There is voice communication software built right in, and team chatting and quick chat messages. If I'm under attack, I can press a couple of keystrokes to alert my team of my condition.
Bitfighter comes with several game modes. There's a ton of variety: Classic modes, like Capture the Flag, and unique modes, like Soccer and Rabbit. Cool stuff. :)
Map creation is super important in Bitfighter, because there are virtually no stock maps. Fortunately, there's a built-in map editor, which is very easy to use and share. I personally own more than 1,200 community-made maps! No need to worry about new maps.
Best of all, Bitfighter is totally free, cross-platform, and is actively being updated. Not sure if we're in beta or not right now, but every version is playable. Join us!
tl;dr: Multiplayer space shooter featuring frequent respawning and hectic combat. Game contains several game modes, weapons, modules, and a built-in level editor.
+ Lots of variety
+ Easy to make and share maps
+ Unique aspects
+ Insanely awesome combat ;)
- Community activity is intermittent, and it can be hard sometimes to find a game
- Bots are neat and good for playing solo, but are kind of primitive right now. They are being improved
This is a very addicting game. It's very fun.
I like to make levels and play levels.
Bitfighter is a perfect game with little bugs. It's awesome.
Also since it's a MULTIPLAYER game, it never gets boring.
I like to play the dungeons.
