AVARUUS is an old school local multiplayer space shooter game. Defeat your opponents with various weapons, tools and other items and survive as the last man standing to win. Get ready for a blast from the past!

HOW TO PLAY

The game features a local multiplayer for 2 to 3 players. Players fight against each other in an open space arena using weapons, tools and other items on their way to victory.

The space arena is deviously warped enabling the players and bullets to travel from one side to another. You may ambush your enemies with clever diversion or strike them head on - the choice is yours!

The last man standing will win the round. The player with most round victories will win the match and claim the fame on the top list.

CONTROLS

The game can be played with the keyboard or a gamepad. Player controls can be configured in the settings menu.

The game supports Xbox 360 controllers only. Consider using a controller emulator for non-supported gamepads.

DEVELOPMENT

The very first prototype version of the game was released in 2006. Other major development sprints occurred in 2008 and in 2011 but the game was never finalized until 2018.

After nearly a decade of inactivity in the development the game was almost lost forever - but luckily it was recovered and could be released with some newly added features and fixes.

The game was developed with experimental CoolBasic game engine which was already outdated technology-wise when the development of AVARUUS began.

PERFORMANCE

The game folder contains DDraw.dll for DirectX 7.0 (DirectDraw) support. This file is needed in order to enhance the game performance on operating systems released after Windows XP.

  • Recommended OS: Windows XP (or newer)
  • Minimum OS: Windows 98
