Red Eclipse is a fun-filled new take on the casual first person arena shooter, built as a total conversion of Cube Engine 2, which lends itself toward a balanced gameplay, with a general theme of agility in a variety of environments. It features: Parkour, impulse boosts, dashing, and other tricks. Favourite game modes with an array of mutators and variables. A built-in editor lets you create your own maps cooperatively online. The project is a Free and Open Source game, built on Cube Engine 2 using SDL and OpenGL which allows it to be ported to many platforms; you can download a package for Windows, GNU/Linux, BSD, and OSX, or grab a development copy from our Subversion repository and live on the bleeding edge. In a true open source by the people for the people nature, we try to work closely with the gaming and open source communities to provide a better overall experience, aiming to create a game environment that is fun and easy to play, while still having elements to master.
Awesome multiplayer game, i would love to give the game a higher rating, but the game is just a expansion on concept that is already done a lot of times.
Dont't get me wrong, the game is good, but it feels a lot like similar games like quake 3 arena of Unreal tournament. Of course there are a lot of variables added to the game, and this is the only thing that keeps it apart from other, similar, games. The game doesn't even try to be diffrent and new, because there are even re-make maps of quake 3 arena added to the vanilla game. Multiplayer isn't played a lot anymore and this is a shame, because the game is made for multiplayer, although a botmode is present in the game.
The things i really like about the game is the music, its techno rock and it really gives you a adrenaline rush when playing.
Want to try a free arena shooter? try quake live, its still being played by many players and it's playable in your browser.
