An on-line sidescrolling freeware
game that plays like a cross between Unreal Tournament
I like this game. Everything is highly customizable; hair, headgear, chains, skin color, and clothing color are all changeble. There are several weapons, and the game isn't exactly graphics-intensive, so it runs smoothly even on my old machine. Not to mention that you can fly. It even comes with its own mapping tool, which comes in quite handy, as the maps that come packaged with Soldat only last so long.
You can get Soldat at www.gamehippo.com
And now, the guide...
Basic Pistol -- This is a backup weapon. Dont expect much. Clip: 7
Desert Eagles -- Like the last one, except you can acutally get few frags with this one! And, it looks cooler. Clip: 7
HK MP5 -- Fast and leathal. This is my weapon of choice. New to the game? Pick this. Clip: 30
AK-47 -- More heavy-duty automatic, not as fast. Clip: 40
Stevr AUG -- This is one fast SOB. Somewhat innacurate, though, and just doesnt have that ZING to it that the HK does. Clip: 30
SPAS-12 -- Oh man, this thing is FUN. I regret I didn't try it sooner. Like any FPS, the shotgun shoots out pellets. However, in this, you can actually see the pellets fly through the air, hit someone, and lop off half their health. Clip: 7
Ruger 77 -- I wondered how they would work a sniper rifle into this. The map i was playing on didn't allow for much sniping, but I bet it'd be useful on CTF_RUN. Clip: 4
M79 -- A rocket launcher! Sort of. It fires like the sniper rife, and explodes on contact. Hrm. Clip: 1
Barret M82A1 -- DAMAGE UP THE WAZOO. And irritatingly long time between individual shots. Clip: 10
FN Minimi -- Take the AUG and give it a bigger clip. Tone down damage to compensate. Clip: 50
XM214 Minigun -- This weapon has no accuracy. What does it have, may you ask? A giant clip, faster rate of fire than it deserves, and the letter "X" in its name. Clip: 100
Grenades -- These are simple. You hold down your greande key, they fly, and stuff explodes. Clip: N/A
Flamethrower -- This thing is neat. It only lasts for 15 seconds, but you get to set people on fire! Clip: 200, and you'll never get through it all.
Rambo Bow -- Only appears in Rambomatch. Reloads super fast, one hit kills, and a giant health bar combo make for a winning package!
Cluster Greandes -- The most common powerup, this turns your grenades into cluster bombs. Basically, when they hit something, they toss out 5 smaller grenades, which explode on contact.
Berzerk -- All your weapons (yes, even the backup pistol) have one-hit-kill capacity for 15 seconds. You can tell someone has A Berzerk by the red blood-ish stuff floating up from them.
Flame God -- Gives you the flamethrower for 15 seconds.
Bulletproof Vest -- Reduces damage, somewhat.
Preadator Mode -- This is cool. It lasts 30 seconds. It makes you invisible. Your gunfire is silent. Mind you, they can still *see* your gunfire. And your jet boots.
Deathmatch -- Kill everyone else more than they kill you.
Pointmatch -- Same as deathmatch, except you get double points if you have the yellow flag.
Teammatch -- 2-4 Teams (Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, Delta) duke it out. Other than the fact that you have allies, its Deathmatch.
Capture the Flag -- Get the other team's flag and bring it back to your base (25 points for capture). You must have your own flag to capture.
Rambomatch -- Only time the Rambo Bow appears. The Rambo Bow gives you a GIANT HEALTH BAR. Only the person with the Rambo Bow gets points for a kill.
