📕 Description [fr]

Un jeu de stratégie tactique opposant des armées liquides pour la domination d'une seule couleur, par Christian Mauduit (ufoot).

Le joueur déplace son curseur sur un champ de bataille comportant un certain nombre d'obstacles, son armée constituée de milliers de particules s'y rend en déterminant le chemin le plus court pour y parvenir. Lorsque ces particules rencontrent celles de l'adversaire, il s'en suit un affrontement dans lequel l'une des deux couleurs est absorbée par l'autre.
Le gagnant est celui dont la couleur prédomine en fin de partie.

Si le jeu est apte à fonctionner en mode mono-joueur, il est néanmoins véritablement conçu pour être joué en multijoueur.
Liquidwar6 est une ré-écriture complète de Liquidwar5.

📕 Description [en]

Liquid War is a unique multiplayer wargame. Its rules are truely 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.
Most Original Linux Game
The award Liquid War received from The Linux Game Tome in 2002, for being the "Most Original Linux Game".

It has been ranked "most original Linux Game" by the Linux Game Tome in 2002. It and has also been nominated in the games category at the internationnal free software contest "Les trophées du libre" in 2003. And I was pleased to hear that Liquid War has been distributed on CD-ROM by a fair number of magazines (essentially in Germany).
