Soldat

After reading this week's Gamespotting I noticed the article about Soldat, a new 2D shooter. Downloaded it and it's quite fun. It plays a lot like Abuse, which some of you guys may remember from a while back as a 2D shooter where you controlled the character with a keyboard and aimed with the mouse. Same deal, but the Soldat landscapes look like Worms and Lemmings.

 

It's got robust multiplayer components (DM, Team DM, CTF, etc) and just about any PC today will run it (I believe minimum spec is 333 mhz).

 

My buggy won't run a server, but if anybody else wants to we could see about throwing together an LCVG crew for a bit o' the old ultraviolence. Yes, attempt at PC gaming #232048 :P.

 

Straight to the download please!

D'oh, sorry I missed this blackcalx. I'm going to be around tonight (Saturday) studying so I'm up for some shooting up of me for a bit of a break ;).

 

I dunno you need a lot of practice, Jay, the controls are pretty basic and I even managed kills in the last game I was in, which was literally my first time playing the game ever :P.

Well, I actually gave this a go briefly last night. Seems a bit sparse in terms of level design, and I got my arse handed to me bigtime, but its novel.

 

My biggest mistake, though, was control layout - I kept grenading when I wanted to jump, and half my deaths were self-inflicted...

I keep dropping my weapon (F key by default) on accident when trying to move. Nothing is more embarrasing that jumping into the fray without your minigun. :oops:

 

Luckily I always keep my chainsaw on hand just in case.

 

That reminds me, I need to create a profile for Soldat on my Nostromo n52.
