As you progress through the game, more types of tiles are introduced which make things more difficult and interesting.

The link is to an ad-site now.

I found the application available at http://download.cnet.com/Hex-a-hop/3000-18536_4-10477949.html

I also found a new version available at Sourceforge but I have not tried it.

I have updated the links in this entry to point to Cnet and I will mention the new version in the forums.

I've never owned an Atari 800 but still I'm going to give this a try. Hats off to all those programmers keeping the spirit of yesteryear's computers alive.

Leaves a folder in Windows folder and folders and files in application data.

Andrew Lee on 2007-08-05 06:26

I can't verify the above. Only two files were produced in the app folder: stdout.txt and xyeconf.xml, nothing else.

Liquid War 5 v5.6.4 Private

Checker on 9 May 2013

Liquid War is a unique multiplayer wargame. Its rules are truly original and have been invented by Thomas Colcombet. You control an army of liquid and have to try and eat your opponents. A single player mode is available, but the game is definitely designed to be multiplayer, and has network support.

I can figure out how to move, but how do you shoot ink?

Sproaticus on 2006-10-20 21:24

You don't shoot anything. The little one-pixel blobs will flow towards your mouse cursor. The whole game consists of you moving the mouse around without clicking anything. It's simplistic, but surprisingly challenging on some levels.

Chris on 2006-12-18 23:04

Make no mistake. This game is great.
