Projects / Crossfire


Crossfire is a multi-player graphical arcade and adventure game made for X. It has certain flavours from other games, especially Gauntlet and the rogue-like games (Nethack, Moria, Angband, and Ragnarok). Any number of players can move around in their own window, finding and using items and battling monsters. They can choose to cooperate or compete in the same world.

            Initial Release

            Crossfire is graphical, multi-user, 2D tile-based
            RPG (role playing game) similar to Ultima Online,
            Everquest, Moria, Angband, Omega, Nethack, Rogue,
            Gauntlet, and MUDs. The bulk of the game is based
            on predefined maps, however some areas are
            randomly generated. It can be played under Windows
            95/98/ME and Linux.

            Version 1.0.0 is the first public release intended
            for wide-spread distribution.
