Description [fr]

Un jeu de Beach Volley, par la GPL Arcade Volleyball Team.

GPL Arcade Volleyball (GAV) est un jeu de Beach Volley mono (IA) et multijoueur (en hotseat ou en LAN).
C'est un remake d'un ancien jeu sous DOS dénommé Arcade Volleyball.

Description [en]

GAV stands for GPL Arcade Volleyball, and is an SDL remake of the old DOS game Arcade Volleyball for several platform (currently Linux, Windows, BeOS and Mac OS X are supported).

So far it is playable already, but we are planning on introducing several extra features with respect to the original game, while still preserving its sheer addictiveness! So far we already added:
• themes support
• networking game
• more than 2 players games
• several configuration options


Why AV?
It is fun. Play it for awhile: it is simple, fast, it just catches on. It's silly -- yes -- but try and play it with friends. It takes 5 seconds to figure out how to play, and the 'funky' physics somehow just appeals. You could see it as a 'party' game; say you're throwing a party, you'd have that sort of game in the middle of several drinks, projected on a large screen, to have people have fun, engage in tournaments and laugh all through the game. Just as you'd have with, say, pong. You wouldn't play Warcraft or Flight Simulator in those situations, or would you. Even for a nerds' party we're talking about.

Features

☑ themes support
☑ networking game
☑ more than 2 players games
☑ several configuration options

Test [fr]

Test (0.9.0) :
Un bon graphisme avec plusieurs thèmes assez différents, de bonnes possibilités, une excellente IA et un bon gameplay.
Un bon jeu.
