A strange phenomenon has been sapping valuable time from our lives at my office in the last week.
It’s called Armagetron. It’s an open source (freeware) arcade-style game that plays like a cross between the movie Tron (“Where love and escape do not compute.”), and the Snakes (aka Worms aka Nibbles) game that came with Microsoft QBasic back in the day.
All you need to know to enjoy the game is that ‘Z’ and ‘X’ are your left and right controls and that the closer you are to an opponents ‘wall’, the faster you will travel. Works well over a LAN – team play is a must. I have to, uh, go back to work now.
