Mod version: 1.4
Headcrab Frenzy is a dynamic action game which allows you to quench a desire to destroy these little bouncy critters to your heart's content, hold records and try your hand at cooperative gameplay, competing in public statistics. Two game modes, four maps, several headcrab types and gradually increasing "frenzy" scale which can be periodically vent - that's the crux of the mod. Is it casual? There is no doubt. But that's not so simple. To achieve high results and score more points you'll have to resort to various tricks: make combos, ensnare headcrabs, use power-ups (there are four in the game), and prevent other players from scoring, pushing them away by a secondary attack of your crowbar. Each map has its own tricks. By discovering them, you'll find out more ways to get high scores and take the first place in tournament tables!
Version 1.4 is a serious rework of previous versions with lots of alterations and improvements.
A new mod from the author of Half-Life FX, and no graphic enhancements? This seems to be impossible, especially in 2014! Most of these effects work under native Half-Life renderers: Software, OpenGL, and Direct3D (in an obsolete WON version).
There is full Linux support! You can play Headcrab Frenzy under Linux if you have a native Linux version of Half-Life. The mod was tested under Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and ran perfectly. Well, Headcrab Frenzy is now officially cross-platform.
You can play on the official Headcrab Frenzy internet server. Address is: volatile3d.ru (HL 184.108.40.206/48+VAC).
Results of matches completed are published on the statistics page.
