This may be one of the best/oddest games I've ever played. It is also one of the best put-together apps I've seen for Linux. The game is great, the documentation is good and the author has links to all required libraries on his site.
I give Liquid Wars two thumbs up!
Best game I've seen in years
My whole family plays this game together. That includes girls aged 5 and 8. It's simple enough for them, yet complex enough to keep my wife and I at loggerheads for hours.
All Windows issues have disappeared; we played for hours on two boxes, redefining keys, adding and subtracting computer players, and having a blast. Very stable.
The family that plays together, stays together. Amazing game.
fun and original
It's very cool to find a strategy game that doesn't have complicated rules, doesn't take all day to play, and doesn't make you go blind looking at tiny icons on a map.
I was unable to get the FreeBSD version working -- the author was very responsive, and tried to help, but I think there's a problem with the Allegro library on FreeBSD 4.8. Finally got a chance to play it on my brother in law's Windoze machine, and it all went very smoothly.
This game has a original idea and is done very nice!
Give it a try - you'll be spending hours playing...
This game is really cool
