Description [fr]

Un fork de Liero 1.35b débarrassé de son contenu non libre, par la Lierolibre Team.

Lierolibre est un fork de Liero 1.35b débarrassé de son contenu non libre (au sens de la FSF), permettant de l'inclure dans toutes les distributions mettant l'accent sur le libre.
Liero 1.33, Liero 1.35b et Lierolibre partagent le même site - né de la collaboration (intelligente) de leurs auteurs respectifs.

Liero est un jeu orienté multijoueur (2 en hotseat, mais une IA "without true intelligence" est aussi disponible) dans lequel les protagonistes dirigent tour à tour leur avatar dans un combat sans merci pour la domination - s'appuyant sur tout un arsenal d'armes, dans des décors destructibles.

Historique et présentation des projets :
Liero 1.33 (version Windows uniquement) :
Conçu et créé en 1998, Liero est devenu l'une des pierres angulaires du jeu pixélisé. Entre 1999 et 2005, la communauté florissante de Liero a conçue de surprenantes cartes, mods et éditeurs pour améliorer son expérience de jeu.
Souffrant de certaines limitations, Liero a perdu en popularité au fil du temps. Il est à présent devenu un jeu légendaire pour les vétérans d'internet.
Il ne fonctionnait que sur Windows 98 (ou plus ancien), ne disposait pas de mode jeu en réseau et comportait certains bogues.

Liero 1.35b & OpenLiero (dans le Bottin) :
OpenLiero fit surface en 2007, repoussant certaines des limitations de son mentor. Respectant le gameplay original, la version 1.35b est à présent devenue la nouvelle version officielle de LIero depuis 1999. De nombreux bogues ont été corrigés, et de nouvelles fonctionnalités sont apparues (tel que l'enregistrement "vidéo").
Avantage : il fonctionne sur la plupart des OS et corrige les bogues de son prédécesseur.
Inconvénients : il ne dispose toujours pas de mode de jeu en LAN, et fait appel à un certain nombre de ressources non libres, ne permettant pas de l'intégrer dans les dépôts classiques de certaines distributions Linux.

Lierolibre (dans le Bottin) :
Un fork de Liero 1.35b débarrassé de son contenu non libre (au sens de la FSF), permettant de l'inclure dans toutes les distributions mettant l'accent sur le libre.

game and graphics.

Erik Lindroos "Gliptic", with help from Mario Carbajal "basro", re-created
Liero as OpenLiero, which later became the official version of Liero.

Martin Erik Werner "arand" created lierolibre as a direct fork from Liero
(OpenLiero).

"sea" created the replacement sounds used in lierolibre.

Liero 1.33 :
Concieved and created in 1998 Liero became one of the cornerstones of pixelated gaming.

Liero is a simple game. Pick your five weapons, and unleash your inner fury. The game is always played one versus one on a map of your choice, and yes, you have to play with someone who is right next to you.

To shoot is of course easy enough to figure out, but if you want to step up your game, you need to figure out things like how to swing yourself to safety with the ninja rope, to use timed weapons for area denial, to hunt without being hunted, to ambush, hit and run, and control that darn guided missile.

If you can do all these things, you may one day become a true champion, as the players in this video attempt.
