armagetronad - a 3D Tron-like high speed game


armagetronad [-h, --help] [-v, --version] [--doc] [-f, --fullscreen] [-w, --window, --win‐ dowed] [--fastforward] [--benchmark] [--record] [--playback]


The rules are simple: you ride a lightcycle (a kind of motorbike that can only turn 90 degrees at a time, leaves a wall behind and cannot be stopped). Avoid running into a wall. Make your opponent run into a wall. This idea comes from the 1982 Disney movie "Tron". One thing is different than in other Tron clones: you can accelerate. However, there is a catch. The only way to accelerate is to drive close to player walls. This allows for some interesting tactics. Every time you make a turn, you lose 5% of your speed -- so don't be too nervous, speed is your only resource against other players! First thing you shold do is go into the "Player Menu" to set your name and your keyboard and mouse configuration. Then, go into the "Game Menu" and start a single player game against one AI opponent (the game mode does not really matter here). Then, get some friends together and try the multiplayer modes! SHIFT-ESC is the "boss key" and quits Armagetron as fast as possible.

These are also configuration set‐ tings for config files. -f --fullscreen Start in fullscreen mode. -w --window, --windowed Start in windowed mode. --fastforward TIME Lets time run very fast until the given time is reached. --benchmark Renders frames as they were recorded. --record FILENAME Creates a DEBUG recording while running. --playback FILENAME Plays back a DEBUG recording.
