    The free game thread

    OK, a little bored so I thought I'd start this one off. The rules are these:

    1. Must be free
    2. Must be installable (not online i.e Flash based games), unless they have online play modes)
    3. Windows XP and above only
    4. Linux and Mac games may also be posted
    5. Good playability is a must. Any rubbish games will be ridiculed.
    6. Remakes are allowed and even encouraged
    7. Must have a valid download link provided

    Right, to kick off then, my choice is Oolite. A bang up to date remake of elite with all of the origional maps, ships and gameplay. There are also a host of down loadable add-ons and mission packs as well as extra ships etc. A great way to swallow up several hundred spare hours!

    Can you clarify whether this would rule out Enemy Territory as it has an online (or do you mean offline) play mode is installable but it is online only.

    Just about anything from Synthetic Reality, but particularly Warpath. Still as entertaining today as it was when I was a kid.
