    One of the best games out there, period. Simple, competitive and challenging.

    Used to be a great game when it first came out but now its run by a bunch of corrupt Admin that allow friends to run cheat clients. If you bring it to anyone's attention you get banned. Avoid this one

    Version: 2.0.10
    Version 2.0.10 is a Universal Binary and runs great on my Intel Core 2 Duo PowerBook under 10.5.8 Leopard (I'll repost a comment when I get Snow Leopard.) This game keeps getting better over time, with significantly improved graphics being the big step up in version 2.0. You won't mistake it for Unreal Tournament III, but a good description of it would be "Quake 3 with tanks, tons of maps and cool powerups, and a very active server and development community". A seriously fun way to waste time. Note that you need net access, this is a multiplayer-only game.

    This game is simple and fun, just a multiplayertank shooter. You run over flags to get powerups, anything from being able to walk thru walls, to rocket launchers, and even a laser. The game controls are simple, but some of the more advanced commands and controls are difficult to use, because there is almost no documentation.

    Nice multi player game - tried it in the office and at home - works fine. Graphics is fine also - one of the best pieces of gaming software i've ever got. High addiction potential ;-) As i can say to trouble starting and running the app the more trash and hacks an OS includes the unstabler will it be... and BZFlag wants a stable system...

    When i try to open the game, the icon bounces in my dock a few times and then dissapears. I have tried everything i can think of. I am running a powerbook G4, macOS 10.2.8 and ive got a fairly reasonable graphics card.

    Version: 2.0
    With its 2.0 release, BZFlag offers a solid implementation of its basic premise. The graphics now look very impressive, networking is fast and there are a range of little features to play with. The game plays well across both a local network or the internet. It is strictly a multiplayer game and never tries to be more than a shoot-'em-up. But, once you figure out the settings, it's good clean fun.

    I downloaded 2.0 twice yesterday. I cannot get it to work either. I launch the application and get a blank screen, it appears that the setup and option menus and active, but I can't see anything so it is pointless. This is really dumb. Someone should have beta tested the Mac OS X version before allowing it to be released.

    Anybody else having trouble getting 2.0 to start? I get a window, then a blank screen and resolution switch, then the resolution switches back and bzflag quits. no "unexpected quit" message or anything of the sort.

    A hidden gem. Complete "blast" to play (forgive my lame pun), it's free, multiplayer, what more can you want? Brilliant!

    Very good game. It is fast-paced, graphics are outstanding, the chat is fun, and you can play from a variety of levels (usually about 30) or create and play on your own level by using the BZedit Program. Simply the best game ever!
