OpenLieroX for Mac

OpenLierox for Mac takes the classic gameplay of Liero and Worms, enhances it with some extra features like customizable weapons, levels, and characters, and packs it in an exciting online gaming experience -- offering you hours of entertainment. Although the game's 2D graphics aren't too impressive, the gameplay is loads of fun and draws you in right away.

OpenLierox for Mac lets you choose between Local Play and Net Play. We recommend that you start practicing your shooting skills using available weapons in Local Play first, by competing against bots. As with traditional Worm games, you have a wide choice of weapons at your disposal such as a minigun, bazooka, napalm, mines, grenades, and similar, from which you can pick five. The game settings let you set max kills, lives, and time, as well as bonuses. Although the game isn't hard, you will need a bit of time to familiarize yourself with the basic controls, especially moving around using a ninja rope. Though it offers only modest graphics, the game manages to create a nostalgic gaming environment that you'll like right away. The online gameplay is where this game stands out, though. It doesn't take long to connect to the game servers and there are always plenty of competitors ready to make you sweat. Team Deathmatches, in particular, are just awesome.

With its fun gameplay and well-designed multiplayer mode, OpenLierox for Mac can offer you many hours of entertainment. Its graphics aren't great, it's true, but the nice game mechanics compensate. What's more, the game is entirely ad free. So, if you're looking for a playful shoot-'em-up game, or are a fan of Worms (like we are), this game is just what you need.

Developer's Description

OpenLieroX is (like the original Liero) kind of a realtime Worms. OpenLieroX is based and compatible to the famous LieroX. LieroX is a 2D shooter game. It is an unofficial sequel to Liero, and is the most popular of all the Liero clones. It features online play, fully customizable weapons, levels and characters. Liero Xtreme was created in C++ by Jason 'JasonB' Boettcher, an Australian programmer.
The game is based on a deathmatch setting, where multiple players face off in a closed level. Each player is equipped with five weapons selected out of all the weapons allowed, and with a ninja rope that allows the player to move in any direction. Players begin with a set amount of lives, and whilst the game records the number of kills, the last man standing is usually considered the winner. LieroX also allows team deathmatches, which has made it common for players to form clans. Because of the huge community, there are dozens of levels and mods available. You also have no problem to find somebody on Internet to play with. Or if you want to play offline, you also can play with bots.
