I remember the ethereal glow of the Tron arcade cabinet, like a beacon pointed toward the future of gaming. It was amazing back then, black cabinet with black light glowing embellishments, and that huge stick. It seemed like so many different games to choose from, but there was really only one that caught my fancy, that was light cycles. Simple, understated, classic light cycles battles were my bread and butter. I couldn’t get enough of it.
Now we have ArmageTron Advanced to quench our thirst for light cycle goodness. It has been updated into full 3D, instead of the top-down arcade style. The game is free and available on every operating system, and as an added bonus, there is a free online mode that’s quick and easy to use. The game is also customizable to the point of changing whatever you want about the game.
If anyone has played Tron or Snake, you pretty much know how to play this game. Trap your opponent in his own light cycle trail, or make him crash into your own.
ArmageTron Advanced is a free multiplayer game that you will come back to again and again with it’s addictive gameplay, tight controls, and multiplayer madness. Check it out, did I mention, it’s free?
