Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Warsow is completely free, first-person shooter (FPS) game for Windows, Linux and Mac OSX.

The action takes place in a futuristic cartoon-like world where rocketlauncher-wielding pigs and lasergun-carrying cyberpunks roam the streets. Speed and movement, that's what Warsow is all about. Like a true cyberathlete you jump, dash, dodge and walljump your way through the game. Grab those power-ups before your enemy does, plant the bomb before anyone sees you, and steal the enemy's flag before anyone knows what's going on!
