Rock, Paper, Shotgun has a review of an old but entertaining freeware Tron game called Armagetron
. The author heaps praise on the game for its "beautiful simplicity" and its exciting multiplayer options. More screenshots and a wiki
are available on the game's website. Quoting:
"It's all about speed, really. You might think driving in clever geometric patterns would win you the game, but speed is the real the alpha and the omega of Armagetron. See, if you can drive parallel to old enemy trails for long enough to get your speed up to two times, three times or even four times more than your starting speed then you become a hunter of men. It becomes within your power to dart off towards other players, overtake them, and take a couple of quick turns that mean your trail boxes them into a tiny space."
