Description: Warsow is a free standalone first person shooter game for Windows and Linux. It is based on the Qfusion 3D engine (a modification of the Quake 2 GPL engine), and aimed on the competitive scene, or the e-sports community.
Size: The downloaded ZIP file is 181MB
Portability: The game is quite portable as it is, although the included portable executable seems out of date. But using the correct command line it seems to run quite well. I tried it with a generic launcher I created for personal use but it seems if it gets an official PA launcher it's ready for prime time shooting
warsow_x86.exe +set fs_usehomedir 0 +set fs_basepath App/warsow
(I still need to check what usehomedir does exactly, but I guess means all files will be downloaded in the apps folder.)
Personal Notes: Compared to many other free shooters Warsow features excellent stylish graphics and has some neat game play tweaks. There is always servers to play on and there are different game modes (Capture the flag, deathmatch, team deathmatch....)
I don't think I want to maintain a portable version at this time, but I think its very well worth a look and making it portable might be a breeze.
PS. I'm not sure if there's already an up-to-date portable version with installer, launcher and splash screen around, but this game is definitely worth an official PAF.EXE release.
For now I'm using my universal launcher (configured through an ini file) to play it from my USB but I think this one deserves a place on PortableApps. I hope you'll agree!
