From the earliest PadMaps came the mod PadWorld, followed by the next colourful evolution, the World of Padman. Developed and headed by cartoonist and illustrator ENTE, PadWorld Entertainment presents a free ware fun shooter for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, that’s powered by an extended id-Tech3 graphics engine based on the source of ioquake3.

WoP is the domain of ENTE’s comic strip super-hero Padman and his motley crew. It’s their mission to make your game with some seriously addictive fun, whatever your skill level and whatever character role you jump into.

Over the years maps have been revamped, bots improved, killer ducks kept hungry, weapons re-polished and much more, such as new sounds, skins, secrets, effects, and powerups! In all, there are 24 maps. Each supports up to 7 game modes, comprising WoP’s unique Spray Your Color, Last Pad Standing, Big Balloon and of course Capture The Lolly, as well as those old favourite Free For All. Meet scaled-up and richly detailed maps of everyday places where imaginative characters go berserk with an array of colorful plastic weaponry and power-ups. Start rockin’ to the soundtrack of Dieselkopf and Neurological soundtrack and the Pad-Anthem, performed by Green Sun. So grab your earphones.

Good morning PadWorld! After 6 weeks of intensive work we can now offer you the first beta of the upcoming version 1.6.1 of World of Padman for download. If you already have WoP version 1.5 or newer installed, you only need to download the 120MB patch. You can also download the 1GB full release if you want to start with a fresh new installation.



As already announced, this version is planned as a maintenance release to make WoP executable on all three operating systems again as quickly as possible. Since MacOS has not supported 32bit applications for a long time, WoP was not executable there until today. We have tried to update the codebase extensively and to fix most bugs, including many previously undiscovered ones (see changelog.txt in XTRAS). The most obvious ones are:

  • Crash mostly on TrashMap and PadGarden
  • FLOATER holdable does not emit sound
  • Music playlist always starts with first song when changing map

In particular, however, we are having trouble reproducing the very annoying CTL bug, where the bots come to a stop and camp on the lolly spawn points after long periods of gameplay. We hope for your support and feedback here, as with all other bugs.

The now published beta version must be tested extensively by you. We will soon offer an appropriately marked beta test server and start open beta tests, also in the context of the monthly Padday. At the same time, this version remains compatible with older WoP 1.6 servers, so you do not need a parallel installation of the previous version.

Have fun! Your WoP Team

Man, last time I played this was like 10 years ago. Wanted to play some arena shooters again, and I remembered this one. Is there still enough player populating servers?

Hi Deivis_101, check out our Padday every 1st Sunday of a month to play online or join our Discord-Server (http://discord.worldofpadman.net) to ask people to join for a match online! It depends a little on your location if there is a server with a suitable ping.

Hi Fdkd, as far as I know ENTE's PadShop was never released for Elite Force and I think it never will be. :(

One of the most polished indie games around with insane maps, innovative gameplay and a unique art style that pushes the ioQuake3 engine to its limits.

Great fun and the attention to detail alone makes this game worthy of your time.
