GL Tron X0.70

07 October 2003

3D lightcycle arcade game inspired by the movie, Tron.

Overview

GL Tron is a 3-D lightcycle game inspired by the film Tron (or rather, all the games inspired by the film Tron). GL Tron features high-quality OpenGL full-screen graphics, cinematic camera angles, sound fx, and fast action with up to 4 players on the same machine.

What's new in GL Tron X

Version 0.70:
  • Turbo (already present in the previously only for win32 released 0.70 alpha-1). Press and hold down the turbo key (default 'e') to accelerate for a limited amount of time (your turbo recharges when you release the key). The engine noise should give you a clue how fast you're going.
  • Wall acceleration - if you're near an enemy wall, your cycle speeds up. Useful for overtaking and boxing in an enemy player. But watch out, they might try to cut you off while you're closing in. This feature isn't enabled by default, but you can change that in the Game -> Game Rules -> Game Type menu.

This is a very fun game! Works well on my 1 GHz iBook. Makes me want to watch the movie again. Graphics are really good. I hope version 1.0 will have outstanding graphics!

great game, a blast from the past but bombs every now and again... have to toss the prefs and redo the setting to get it back up.

OK, looks like the "unexpectedly quit when selecting a texture" thing was fixed in 0.70. Way to go!

An AWESOME game, i played it on the latest mac format under the folder "wacky" ??? the only bad thing about this game is that after you play three or four games your controls dont work, so you go into the control settings and the thing crashes.

I personally think it's one of the best games I've played yet out of all of them.

this is one of the greatest simplest games ever. you drive your light cycle around and you leave a wall of light behind you. the object of the game is to trap another player (human or computer) behind your wall. you can have up to four player. i liked this game so much i went out and rented the old movie. when anybody comes over they want to go and play tron. i deffenetly recomend it. the only roblem was that it kind of slowed up my computer

To Anonymous: OK I got the Stuffit Standard 8.0.1 update (the one that fixes the package issue), and it indeed runs, but I discovered a bug with selecting certain textures; the application unexpectedly quits.

Refuses to start; the icon appears in the dock for a second and then vanishes. I'm on Mac OS 10.2.8. Stick with v. 0.62 for now.

Waouh!! I'm a big fan of the movie and I can't believe it took so many years to have a proper game that actually makes you feel you're in. Totally awsom. Merci beaucoup beaucoup...

A great game! Graphics are tight and the play by the CPU is not too bad. I would like to see a more aggressive play-mode by the CPU, it tends to want to wait you out as opposed to really going after you. A 1 second speed burst could also add a new facet to the game ;)

Warning: this is HIGHLY addictive. Very well done, challenging and visually interesting to boot. My four year old can play it and enjoy it. My only complaint would be the interface to start a new game seems too many steps, and occasionally I've had to force quit it.
