Each player controls a team of several hedgehogs. During the course of the game, players take turns with one of their hedgehogs. They then use whatever tools and weapons are available to attack and kill the opponents' hedgehogs, thereby winning the game. Hedgehogs may move around the terrain in a variety of ways, normally by walking and jumping but also by using particular tools such as the "Rope" or "Parachute", to move to otherwise inaccessible areas. Each turn is time-limited to ensure that players do not hold up the game with excessive thinking or moving. A large variety of tools and weapons are available for players during the game: Grenade, Cluster Bomb, Bazooka, UFO, Shotgun, Desert Eagle, Fire Punch, Baseball Bat, Dynamite, Mine, Rope, Pneumatic pick, Parachute. Most weapons, when used, cause explosions that deform the terrain, removing circular chunks. The landscape is an island floating on a body of water, or a restricted cave with water at the bottom. A hedgehog dies when it enters the water (either by falling off the island, or through a hole in the bottom of it), it is thrown off either side of the arena or when its health is reduced, typically from contact with explosions, to zero (the damage dealt to the attacked hedgehog or hedgehogs after a player's or CPU turn is shown only when all movement on the battlefield has ceased).

Winter is Coming...

... and 0.9.19 is here! Has life been giving you nothing but lemons?Don't worry, there's a new theme to go bananas over: Fruit!
Frozen hog! Cool New WeaponsDon't wait for hell to freeze over, freeze it yourself with the all-new, amazing Freezer!Freeze your enemies, make ice-bridges over water or just create a slippery path of death!(*The dev team will not be held responsible for any injury and/or death you may sustain while walking on ice)We've improved your existing arsenal, too! The 'size' of cleaver has been reduced, so now it's more likely to cut into hogs instead of imbedding itself infuriatingly into the ground. The Flying Saucer has also seen some interesting changes...Flying Saucer Hedgehog Death comes from above below!It's time to take your amphibious assault to the next level. While using the Flying Saucer, it's now possible to launch projectiles from underwater! Also, instead of just dropping bombs on your enemies you can aim them, too! Wow!Cyborg Improved AI

  • Think you can hide in a hidey hog hole? The newly improved AI will use drill-rockets to dig you out!
  • Don't worry, though, you can always sneak under the protection of your trusty steel girder, right? That's where you're wrong my friend!

Robin Hood! New Gameplay Challenges

  • An frenetic, awesome new gameplay mode: Frenzy! In this mode each turn lasts only one second. Can you handle it?
  • An extra mission: Nobody Laugh.
  • More Achievements: 'Prestigious Pilot' and 'Naughty Ninja' have been added to the old missions. Have fun trying to unlock them.
  • A new weaponset, One of Everything.

Shocking New Maps

  • Fight on a variety of new battlegrounds!
  • New entries include Bones, Crystal, Grassy, Haunty, Oaks, Shrooms and Tentacles!

Special thanks to Tiy of Starbound for donating these Starbound backgrounds as Hedgewars maps.

Yellow Cap! More customization!

  • Over 30 new hats!
  • New SteelTower fort!

Ninja Full! Ropers Rejoice

  • Are you already bored with the hundred shoppa maps you downloaded? Don't worry, now you can play on an 'infinite' number of procedurally generated maps, thanks to the new Shoppa Map script.
  • If the behavior of rope in 0.9.18 made you want to tear your hair out, you'll be glad to know that it's much improved.

Health Pickup And there is more!

  • A plethora of squished bugs.
  • Improved Interface Lets you access and modify your game settings more easily.
  • Improved Lua Support All power to the scripters!
  • Better chat! Use the up and down keys to navigate the chat history, and feel like a commandline commando by using our /quit, /pause, and /fullscreen commands.
  • Check out the ChangeLog if you want to see a more complete list of the changes.

You can get the new version from the download section!

Please be a bit patient though, it may take a while till all installers/packages for all supported operating systems are available.
From the hedgewars team.

To sum this up

Yozhik makes a clone machine, then loses his glasses, goes insane and started cloning. 60 years later, the war of self-formed clans of Yozhik clones is at its peak and no one else is alive but these clones.

Don't think anyone on the team even knew this page exists (as the game is an open source game, not a mod) but anyway ... added some downloads and updates. ;)
