APC Magazine 5 Best

That's RIGHT! Battle for Wesnoth has ONCE AGAIN been named one of the 5 BEST free and open source games EVER!

:roll:

On another note, Secret Maryo looks cool, and Nethack got an honorable mention. Otherwise, I've pretty much seen and heard of everything else.

Fixed :)

I personally dont find spring hard to manage, I was able to get into a game in the first try (after downloading the stuff), consequently ruining the game for anyone who was in here with impressive levels of noobage...

maryo is quite fun... too bad it has no story nor bosses :(

I played an earlier version, and it felt like a bunch of cut out icons moving around on the screen. That's not to say there's no strategy involved, but turn based is not my game.

Battle for Wesnoth is cool but the random factor is big enough that it gets really frustrating, while being small enough that people can say that anybody who cares about it is whining.

Wesnoth is very cool imo, well developed balance, and the random element is not actually that huge; it's pretty rare that a game can be decided on a single "dice roll".

The multiplayer lobby is fugly tho, and it lacks a lot of the more basic necessary functions imo, the inability to switch back to the main lobby once you have hosted a game, without closing the game, is a big problem imo.

Worth checkin out tho, my nick is (surprisingly) pintle on there gimme a shout if you fancy a game

There's no mention of Warsow, Padman or Tremulous. Yawn.

"If spring was user friendly it wuld have deserved being on a top 5 list."

With ICEUI, Spring is more user-friendly than some commercial games I play. Actually the default UI is good now too.
