A new of release of Cube 2 is now available for AROS. The vast majority of open source FPS games are based on an evolution of the various versions of Quake’s graphics engines: Cube 2 is an exception in this sense however developers must have thought it was useless to reinvent the wheel so the game modes implemented are the classic deathmatch and capture the flag with some variations. These are multiplayer modes that allow you to challenge other players in a local network or the Internet, there’s also the possibility to play in single player mode against bots driven by the computer. The different graphics engine has led to some peculiar choices compared to other games: for example in the fights against bots you need to configure the minimum and maximum level of difficulty and the player has all the weapons from the beginning but he has to get their ammunition. The Cube 2 package includes dozens of maps: many of them have classic locations in castles, palaces and stone ruins. People with a good artistic talent can create on their own everything needed to create environments of different types and maps with different characteristics: in fact it looks like Cube 2 fans have a considerable artistic talent because there are many other maps with different settings. If you want to play alone for deathmatch training or for other reasons you can do it in two modes: “bot match” or “Campaign”. “Bot match” mode is basically a deathmatch played against various bots of which you can set minimum and maximum skill, in “Campaign” mode instead the goal is to kill all the bots to go to the next level.
