MacTrek For Mac Publisher's description
A free to play open source software cross platform multiplayer hybrid multi-directional shooter and real-time strategy game for up to 16 players.
A free to play open source software cross platform multiplayer hybrid multi-directional shooter and real-time strategy game for up to 16 players. The goal of the game is to capture all the opposing teamвЂ™s planets. It combines twitchy style reflexive dogfighting with extensive team play and strategy.
MacTrek is a complete re-implementation of a classic network game known as netrek. The game was a major breakthrough in online gaming and even after three decades has lost little of its addictiveness. The original client that exists for Mac OS X is, in fact, a cross-platform X11 application that lacks the grace and ease of use that makes the Mac what it is.
