The Icon Bar: News and features: BotKiller 2 Freeware'd

BotKiller 2 Freeware'd

Posted by Richard Goodwin on 16:50, 7/10/2001 | ,
Artex Sofware (don't you just love 'em?) have taken time out from working on TEK just long enough to release BotKiller 2 as freeware.

The 2D platform/shooter, previously released as a budget title, also comes with a level designer just in case you want even more 'bot killage. It can be downloaded from the Artex website, www.artexsoft.com

Unregistered user This takes the piss - I'm speechless with surprise and amusement in fact.

After delaying for years, I only went and posted off a cheque to Wag Software not more than a few days ago...!
Hmm.... I wonder if they'll cash it and send me a nicely packaged copy, or not cash it and tell me to download it for free.

Still, nice to see another good game being released as freeware (after Dune II). Presumably this will either drive up the quality of commercial software, or kill the market entirely. Obviously I hope that there is enough life in the old dog for the former to happen, but it will be interesting to see...

Unregistered user It was on AUCD13 I think.
Jeffery I found your SunBurst utils on AUCD9 when I was rooting through the other day

Unregistered user Oooo, I never knew those got put on there. Once I can be bothered to learn how to use the WIMP I'll do a nice new version of the save game editor :)
