Downloadable Game for the Weekend: Bloodmasters
« on: January 26, 2007, 09:27:55 PM »
Our friends at ghacks.net have found another gem of a game - multiplayer mayhem in this free top down shooter. Let's play!

Quote
The game could almost be a clone of Quake 3 Arena or Unreal Tournament in 2D. All the classic weapons like the minigun, rocket launcher and lightning gun are available and can be used to vaporize the enemy. Even game modes that I do not like this much (Deathmach) are pure fun because the game is fast and intense and respawn is almost instantly.

You can fall of the edges so beware those positions, it happens often that a grenade explodes near you and the detonation pushes you into the darkness counting as a suicide, bad if you play team deathmatch.

Bloodmasters should run even on old computers the requirements are 1.4 Ghz cpu and 256 MB of ram.

This is pretty well done and easy to play - someone want to start a server for it for dc play?

This is a great game. Really addictive. The public servers that are available does not seem to be full very often so maybe it's better if people join those until the game gains more users. But sure, if someone sets up another server I'll happily tag along and play some rounds!  :Thmbsup:

true.  let's organize some play.  a good way is to meet in the dc irc chat channel (#donationcoder on efnet, or click chat at top of forum links).

im going to join Puregamer now if anyone wants to play

I am installing it now and would be glad to host a game! :)  I run a Scorched3D server also if anyone is interested.

Anyone still playing it? I'm a little late to the show but I'd like to give it a try.

Bloodmasters is now open source. Sadly, it also seems to be half dead. It was long since I last played it but when I checked it out now there are few servers and almost no player. Sad, since the game is excellent.
