King of the Hill

King of the Hill (KOTH) is an artillery game in the grand old tradition of little tanks with ridiculously powerful weapons trying to blow each other up while trying to avoid getting blown up themselves. Koth features LibGGI for fast portable graphics, full client/server multiplayer, a few cool weapons, in-game chat, and nice terrain generation algorithm. Open source in the hopes that others will help out and make this a really great game.
