3rd-person action game.

Overview

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 context sensitive. For example, if an opponent aims a roundhouse kick at Turner's head, you can crouch and then stand up under the attack to grab your assailant's leg and kick him away. If you try and punch an opponent and he tries to throw you over his shoulder, you can crouch to roll painlessly out of the throw. This new combat system makes fights look and feel much more intense and believable than in any other game.

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.

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.

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).

Runs smooth in a G3/500 iMac, as long as you tweak the settings a bit (mainly: turn off motion blur effect). Pretty good game, despite the confusing controls. Worth checking.

I think this game has the most intuitive fighting system of any third person game I've ever played. It blows my mind how few people were involved in the creation.

This game is surprisingly good! Though the graphics are pretty simple, the motion of the characters is outstanding. The ragdoll physics is awesome. That said, the game does need a bit more polish. Though the one-click fighting makes for easy playing, it makes precise control quite difficult - for example, you can't punch if you're moving, and you can't kick while standing still. But, on the plus side, the system makes for very fluid fighting - better than most commercial games out there. Also, it's bunnies fighting. Not cutesy fighting - it's violent. Throwing knives, stabbing corpses, tacking enemies as they try to escape... Definitely not a game for kids, but an awesome game. Hopefully the developer will continue to polish the graphics, and improve the flow a bit more. I'll certainly pay for the full version. Only bug I've encountered - when using my third-party mouse, my Apple mouse didn't register a held click until I logged out/logged back in, nor would it work in the game after using the non-Apple mouse. Not using the non-Apple mouse is a work around, but it's still odd behavior.

it's ok. The camera is a little weird, and picking how to dress you character would be nice. It crashed 3 times, and the map editor (which I hacked into, BTW) is horrible. i'd give this a three.

Really, the skeletal animations in this game are the best there are in the whole gaming industry, a superb job of detail. The Aikido moves are very accurate and the transitions between moves are seamless. Great job.

The only thing I didn't like about this was that the camera had no intelligent automatic control at all. Not being a fan of using "asdw" for movement, I mapped my keys differently. This was very cleverly reflected in the tutorial UI (showing the keys I actually wanted to use for various abilities) but having to constantly take my hands off the keyboard to position the camera so I can see made the game unplayable. I will keep my eyes on future demos with possible fixes. (And if anybody saw a way to turn on an auto-cam let me know because this looks very promising.)

I remembered seeing videos of this game back when it was in development, and thinking, "Man, they're probably not going to pull it off so that the combat system looks that good and is actually usable." They pulled it off. Not only is the game beautiful (if lacking in the story dept.) it is also incredibly fun to play, and the engine has a _lot_ of potential.

Lugaru is an impressive feat coming from a lone-wolf, college student developer. The gameplay is a really great but the lack of multiplayer capability is a bummer. The story is pretty terrible but clearly not the focus of the game.

The last time my heart rate was this high, I was ACTUALLY being chased by rabid wolves. The fast paced combat, strategic variability, and austerely efficient control system make this game a must play.
