The latest Slacker's Guide enters the colorful electronic racing world of GLTron, an open source game allowing players to experience the excitement of light cycle racing in the style of the 80's movie Tron. The game offers both single and multiplayer modes and is configurable for a variety of monitor and control settings.
Based around the light cycle races of the movie, GLTron puts players in the driver's seat, or make that the rider's seat. Staged in an enclosed arena, the goal is to ride the light cycle, creating an impenetrable wall behind the player that can be used to destroy other opponents. Simple enough premise, but the reality proves to be that much more fun. Complete with all the bells, whistles and cool techno surroundings of the movie, GLTron gives the players everything they could ask for; a Tron light cycle environment wherein the player plays a 400 mile per hour game of chicken with the other players while trying to create a wall for the other to run into before they hit the arena wall or a wall that's already been created and die.To read the entire article click the link below.
