World of Padman Reviewed

Mod DB recently reviewed World of Padman, a multiplayer shooter which began as a mod for Quake III Arena and is now a stand alone title. The zany game pits colorful characters against one another in a fight to the death. Mod DB recommended the game to fans of the genre.

World of Padman 's colorful graphics are rendered by the dated Quake 3 engine. However, despite the fact that the Quake 3 engine has fallen behind modern standards, you'll seldom realize the lack of detail due to the prominent stylization of the visuals. This mod proves that the visual appeal of a game isnít about fancy bloom or HDR effects, but instead about the quality of design and style. The creators use their background in comic illustration to evoke a world of colorful artistic accents.

The visuals will not cater to all tastes and those more interested in realistic graphics may be turned off by World of Padman 's unrealistic, cartoon style. Nevertheless, don't let the colorful, almost child-like visuals fool you into thinking that the gameplay lacks the violence and brutality of other shooters.

The game play is quite similar to the wildly fast combat that Quake is known for. World of Padman offers up the classic Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Last Man Standing modes, while also introducing two relatively original modes of play.
