ZAP Multiplayer

ZAP is a team-based Internet multiplayer game with 2D retro-style vector graphics. The control scheme is patterned after the arcade classic Robotron. It uses the Torque Network Library for its network transport layer. It supports multiple game types (Capture the Flag, Soccer, Football, Hunters, Rabbit, Zapmatch), configurable ship powers, and support for voice recording and gamepad controllers (not on all platforms).
