Altitude – Linux flies with multiplayer retro-style plane combat

Filed under
Gaming

Anyone who is old enough to remember the Atari 2600 will recall the plane warfare game which provided hours of fun for two players and you fought it out. It also spawned numerous clones on the same system, with tanks and a plethora of others my failing memory has chosen to forget. Happier times.

Today though for Linux, Mac and Windows you can relive some of these old memories with the added bonus of online play, multiple players and more modern gfx. The game has just received a patch (3rd of October 2011) so it’s all fresh and shiny for the OpenBytes treatment!
