Lugaru (pronounced Loo-GAH-roo) is a third-person action title. The main character, Turner, is an anthropomorphic rebel bunny rabbit with impressive combat skills. In his quest to find those responsible for slaughtering his village, he uncovers a far-reaching conspiracy involving the corrupt leaders of the rabbit republic and the starving wolves from a nearby den. Turner takes it upon himself to fight against their plot and save his fellow rabbits from slavery.

Lugaru's primary feature is its unique combat system. Instead of relying on confusing button combinations to perform moves, Lugaru's moves are all logical and more...

Probably the best game I've ever played. Some tough levels further on. Killing wolves as a rabbit is not easy.

Runs great on almost all Macs. With a powerful computer you can run it on a 30" computer screen.

Alas, the new game Overgrowth has taken forever to develop.

In the meantime, if you haven't tried Lugaru, you're in for a treat.

This is definitely one of the greatest games I've ever played. I'm not much of a gamer-the last time I got hooked by a near-first-person game was Lara Croft, but this game sucked me in very quickly. I only downloaded it out of curiosity, but I got going so quickly, that it quickly became one of my favorites. I've had a copy of the demo for a long time now, hemming and hawing about whether to buy it. The thing is, I keep playing the demo -- even playing the same few levels over and over again is terrific. The graphics are very smooth, and the punches/kicks/big falls are both amazing to watch and extremely satisfying (there's nothing quite like kicking one opponent up into the air and blasting him into another opponent with a mighty punch). Some people complain that the models are overly simple, but I rather like that: it makes the game feel very pure and un-ornamented. The sound-effects are very similar, simple but very functional and not only don't get in the way but add in an important and useful way to the game. Make no mistake, the major selling point of this game is that it is fun to play. VERY fun to play. The gameplay is very easy to start and the controls are quickly learned, but at the same time the game lavishly rewards skill and practice. The combat system is both complex and simple to do: I can't speak more highly of it. With four keys and a mouse-button, plus directional keys, you can do even the most complex or impressive moves with a one or two carefully-timed keypresses. I look forward to sinking MUCH more time into this game.

however, .zip files can ruin resourceforks, so don't use that one either if your work requires those.

I agree!

Dump Stuffit Mac OS X users! Use .zip or .dmg formats.

WE DON'T NEED YOU ALLUME, we've endured bugginess and issues for years, and we prefer developers to dmg or zip their files.

To the author: Please use Apple's .dmg format not Stuffit. Not everyone has Stuffit installed...on the other hand, everyone's got the built-in disk image daemon.

Please...if your app is a pure OS X app (and not an OS 9/X hybrid), use .dmg instead of .sit. 10.4 doesn't have Stuffit installed by default...and I'm not going to install it.

Heh, Lugaru is true Carbon -- it runs natively in OS 9, so .sit really is the right compression format, although now that tiger doesn't include Stuffit, maybe dmg would be better, with an alternate link to the few (hopefully) Classic users.

Wow, this is a great game. The story is good, the gameplay is good. Best of all, it runs smoothly on my 600MHz iMac. Kudos to the dev for making this game all by himself. Not many one-man creations are this good. I give it a 4 for graphics and sound only because it could use some more varied sounds, and the scenery could be a little more complex.

It would be nice if they included a default set for left handed people (that's also reflected in the tutorial text).
