editor's review

Are you feeling bored with the adventure of the alien or with the some giant killing machine? Don??™t worry-There are still some simple games to entertain you. These games have no pistols or bullets or bombs or a thrilling drama. These games are so simple and Flaw 1.2.4 is such kind of game where there is no drama or a bombastic tragedy.

This game is a simple top-down game and it is played by single or more players. In this game you have to survive for a long time. In the arena of this game some fireballs will be appeared. The number of fireballs will increase time to time. You have to hit these fireballs to kill otherwise they will attack you. Some magic gems will be appeared in the arena time to time. By collect them you may get some special abilities such as: speed, ghost wizard, fire wizard etc.

The game sound and graphics are actually awesome. You can play the game in full screen or in window. If you play the game slowly then lower resolution will give better performance. You can set a winning score and even you can switch the gems ON/OFF and then see your cleverness.

F.L.A.W. is a free top-down wizard fighting game that can be played by up to 5 players. The goal of the game is to survive as long as possible while more and more fireballs appear in the arena.

Gameplay is simple and self-explanatory:
While the players try to avoid the fireballs, they can knock each other down. In addition there are collectable magic gems that provide special abilities. The game can be played as a single player game against the computer, but it is more fun with 2 and more human players.

F.L.A.W. uses the SDL libraries and can be compiled for any platform supported by SDL.

Game Instructions

The Menu

You can use the arrow keys or a joystick to navigate the menu.
The following menu items are available:

* Player Setup:
Choose the number of players (2 - 5) and how each is controlled (computer, keyboard, joystick)

* Game Options:
Set the winning score, switch the collectable gems on and off and choose the AI Level (This affects how clever the computer players act).

* Graphics and Sound
Change the sound options and screen mode. The game can be played fullscreen or in a window. If the game runs too slowly for you, try a lower screen resolution. FLAW supports resolutions from 320x240 to 1280x1024. It should run fine with the standard settings on most hardware though.

* Start the Game

* Exit

Playing the game

Just move your wizard around and use the fire button to hit.

Arrow Keys:
Use the arrow keys to move around. To hit, use the right CTRL or SHIFT key.
