Multiuser gameplay is real-time: in each turn, all human players move concurrently. The game is designed to remain fairly playable even on poor network connections. Freeciv can also be played on standalone machines, and its AI players are a good challenge for beginners. The source code comes with the server, two X clients, and non-X clients for MS Windows and Amiga. Freeciv is released under the GNU General Public License. It is maintained by an international team of coders and enthusiasts, and is easily one of the most fun and addictive network games out there.

ICBM3D (Inter-Continental Ballistic Missiles, 3D) is a 3D game of defense. Like the original "Missile Command" and its clones, this game places you in control of Anti-ICBM weapons which you use to destroy an onslaught of missiles (and other nasties) which are dropping onto your nation. The game ends when your cities have all been destroyed. You only gain replacement cities by acheiving certain score thresholds during each attack. The differences between Missile Command and ICBM3D is that ICBM3D, as the name suggests, provides a 3D perspective. You take advantage of X-Window's 3-button mouse to control your firing sight in 3-dimensions and change your viewpoint.
